tulips - one last time


smile! we made it up to the tulips one last time. they were already starting to mow the big fields when we got there, but thankfully roozengaarde always keeps their flowers till the end! so i just had to share some pics from the afternoon. so this picture isn't that amazing... i just thought it was really funny. :)

this picture looks totally fake... but i assure you we were all laying on very damp real grass.







kissing this big stone frog is an annual tradition.



if you made it this far... WOW! you have perseverance! i just had a really hard time narrowing down my favorites. (that's a constant problem of mine!) anyway, have a great day!

You have a hard time narrowing down your favorites because you take such AWESOME pictures! lol I guess its a curse, huh?!! These are all gorgeous Noel ... I especially like the one of the girls in the grass where it looks like they are talking...but they are all just beautiful! You really take amazingly wonderful pictures! TFS!!

Oh My Gosh! You are an awesome picture taker, you have the cutest girls & their dresses are perfect!! I wish we had a place like that around here (I'm in Ohio) because those make for some beautiful pictures!

Noel, awesome as usual. You could share a hundred pics and I'd still look at them to try to learn from your skill!

Amy said...

Just lovely! The girls are beautiful as are the pictures! And those tulip dresses are too cute! I see how you could have a hard time picking out your favorites! (and I often have that problem too!)

I will say what everyone else said - because it is true - what GREAT pictures! You do have a way with your camera! And your girls are so cooperative - makes me extremely jealous. When I get my camera out, my family runs from me. haha

Whippet said...

Great pictures. Love the first "smile" one. I see you've been extra busy:-)

Stephanie said...

All of the pics are great, but #8 of your little ones walking away from the camera is my favorite!!! Have a great NSD!

Cindy said...

One word... beautiful!

Kathleen Summers said...

Wow. Stunning photos of your beautiful girls. You're amazing!!

Samantha said...

Hi, Noel!! I'm finally getting around to visiting my favorite blogs again, and of course, yours is one of them!! The girls looks so adorable in these pictures. I'm so bummed we didn't get a chance to get together before I left, but I'm sure we will see each other again soon :)

Stan said...

Those kiddos just crack me up. I love Torrey trying to get Emma to smile. That is just classic. Mowing the tulips only means I'm that much closer to coming home.

elizabeth said...

Hi. I was turned on to your blog from my friend, Sara. I've read a few of your comments and see that we are all in agreement about your true ability in taking great pictures- but I have to tell you- the creative projects you show on your blog are what really blow me away. You don't even need to buy gifts for friends and family- they are probably so happy to receive one of your awesome cards. It's pretty inspiring stuff.
