Tulip Festival

About a month ago my sister-in-law Meridith and I went to Seattle with the boys to have a little fun. While we were there we went to the Tulip Festival in Marysville. The tulips weren't in full bloom yet but they were still beautiful!
I'm pretty sure this was Meridith's favorite part of the trip!
Chocolate covered strawberries and bananas.

Ben in the crowd

Where's Waldo...I mean Ben?
I was hoping Ben would have a chance to write a little something but his internet has been really slow lately so it's hard for him to add to the blog.

You have serious mad skills if you can find him in this one! I think he's the one leaning on the barrier with his hands crossed.

He's not in this picture but I think it's awesome how President Obama is not only shaking hands but hugging everyone as well!

Ben met the President today!

Stay tuned for more pictures and stories from Ben!!!
