Miss May Day 2009

Today is the first day of May...known as May Day...and celebrated as the festival of spring around the world.

Let me introduce you to my own little 'Miss Mae'...

...who came with me to frolic in the flowers yesterday afternoon.

The sun was shining...and I made the short trek east of town to the Tulips of the Valley Festival. It is an amazing sight...and all the more fun in good company.

Heidi and Miss Maelyn joined me on the outing...

...and Maelyn was quite intrigued by the tulips and the colours......but not in the least bit interested in looking at Grammy who was behind the camera.

As we left the tulip fields...I wondered aloud if we should maybe stop by and see Maelyn's daddy...since I knew he worked somewhere in the general vicinity. Heidi thought it was a good idea...and we arrived at Tim's place of employment just as his day was ending. He was thrilled to see us, of course...and offered to take me on a tour of his work site. He's been a busy boy these past few years...working towards the Vancouver 2010 Winter Games. I'll take you back one of these days...and tell you a little about it...once I have it cleared with the powers that be.

Have a wonderful weekend...and be sure to get out there and enjoy the season!

May Day's here, May Day's here,
Sun shines bright, sun shines bright.
Birds and butterflies are in flight,
Blooming flowers--such a sight!
Everything feels just right.
May Day's here!

  12. Your little Miss Mae is precious! The photos you took are beautiful. We took a drive out to Tulip Mania 2 times last week. Enjoyed the flowers and the HUGE bouquets we picked to bring home with us...the proceeds went to a good cause. We've been enjoying the sunshine too. Kathy
