Tulip Festival with my In-Laws

 Tony's parents came out to visit us the last weekend in April. Lucky for all of us we were able to go check out the Tulip Festival at Thanksgiving Point in Lehi , about 20 min from where we live. We went to lunch at Joy Luck and then enjoyed walking around the gardens to work off all the food we ate :)  It was a tiny bit chilly with a breeze but other than that , the weather was fantastic.

 Check out a ton of pictures I took during our visit. So many photo moments!

 My parents would have loved this , I really hope we can take them next year!

 Italian Garden

 Light of the World exhibit. An artist from AZ (yay!) is making these. There were a few full size ones (like the one above) of Jesus walking on water and the rest were miniature sizes but eventually will be made life size. Really something impressive to see!


 Gathering the chicks. My favorite!

 Jesus carrying the cross

 carousel of horses. This is something else new and I had not seen it before

 Last day of the Tulip Festival and there were a bunch of different groups of kids
