Keukenhof Gardens

Friday evening, we drove to the Netherlands!
 We got up early Saturday to head to Keukenhof Gardens to see the Tulips.
 The tulips took our breath away as soon as we walked in!
 We attempted to do the kid scavenger hunt, but it was HARD!
 I only took 264 pictures!  

 We went to the top of the windmill and the worker had on wooden shoes.

 The garden had a maze and inside the maze was a platform you could climb to see the fields.  

 We ate in their British cafe.  They had made Big Ben and Tower Bridge from the tulips.  

 Jenn and I found a snail in a tulip.

 I asked a guy if he would take a picture of the six of us.  This is what we found on the camera.  
 These may be the two worst pictures out of the 264.

 As we left the garden, the GPS accidentally took us down the path right off the fields.  The road happened to be a dead end, but we got to see this!  
As I stepped out of the car to take this picture, the smell of the hyacinth was amazing!  
In the end we drove almost 13 hours to see these flowers, and they were worth it!  
We are already planning on returning next year!
