Finding sand dollars

This is definitely the biggest sand dollar we have ever found.  We found it just laying in the sand on Maxwelton Beach in Clinton, WA.

The month of April is always when the Tulip Festival is held.  So we headed up to Skagit Valley in Mt. Vernon to take pictures of fields of tulips. Over 300 acres of these gorgeous flowers are grown here in Northwest Washington.

Time for some sandwiches before heading home at our favorite sandwich deli.
Then a few weeks later we celebrated Easter with some very good friends we have made here on Whidbey.  The cakes and food were both beautiful and delicious!

All "the boys" were preparing the plastic easter eggs with toys and candy before the big hunt.  (A little bit of playing was going on too.  I think we had 250 eggs!)

Plastic eggs being hid all around the yard.

The kids are getting the Easter hunt briefing right before the "big dash" to load up their bags and baskets.
Off hunting for eggs!
Five golden eggs were hidden.  Here's Millie with her special find!

My favorite people on Whidbey Island!  Such fun friends.

Being silly.
Enjoying good drinks, nice company, a strumming guitar in the background and the warming sun.

A great Easter day.
