mixed feelings


Our Tulip Festival ended this evening after three days.I always have a little bit of a let down feeling but also breath a huge sigh of happiness when it is over.
I LOVE the Tulip Festival and keep very very busy. From sun up to sun down I am doing some special thing and I am happy.It may be working thre information booth or Dutch Dancing or being in the parade I am there.
God truely blessed us this year with wonderful weather and no major accidents or problems.Three days of temps in the upper 70's to mid 80's.There are many sun burnt faces around town this weekend.
But the best part of the festival has to be all the great junk food to eat, and some of the good Dutch treats as well.
So yes I am alive and back to reading and posting comments. I've missed you.
I only wish I had a video of the parade it would amaze all of you how a town of 5,ooo people can put on a great parade.And play host to so many people. The crouds were truely amazing today.

You know - I just like to have our quiet city back - but yes, it's fun for three days and then back to normal. You were the hit of the parade, Mr. Brian - you're quite the dancer!!!

I love Tulip Festival time too and watching you doing all your activities although I missed the Dutch dancing.
Time to get back to walking off all those poffertjes, homemade ice cream and whatever else we ate!

Wasn't it a wonderful weekend!! We even had people parking in our alley there were that many people!!It was fun this year knowing lots of people in the parade and meeting lots of friends on the streets. Even I, who had very little to do with the festival itself, heard wonderful comments about the town and its people. Cool
