But no trip to the Tulip Festival would be complete without a hot dog breakfast, right?! 20 years ago there was a Wienerschnitzel near my hometown of Murray, Utah; but when it and every other Utah Wienerschnitzel closed down, I just assumed the business was gone for good. Little did I know we actually have our very own Wienerschnitzel in my current town of Everett, WA! Amy's a hot dog lover and had pinned it to our Pinterest board, but with everything else we had planned that day, I didn't think we would make it. Just for kicks I looked up their hours of business, and they actually open at 9:00AM. Who the heck eats hot dogs at 9:00AM?...Oh wait...we do (and yes, we were the only customers there that early)! I had a deliciously awesome Angus dog with cheese on a pretzel bun (HOLD THE MUSTARD!!!) and Amy had a Kraut dog. Why their menu doesn't say anywhere that their hot dogs come with mustard is beyond me. Man that would have ruined my breakfast! I stopped the guy just as he was shaking up the bottle.
Amy in beautiful Tulip Town
|Let's name these Tulips after a beer!|
|Cabbage got turned into a flower!|
|Named after nearby Mt Baker|
|Love the dark red ones!|
|These were some of our favorites. It's almost like they're lace trimmed|
|A lion got turned into a flower!|
|Come kiss me baby!|
|These tulips could still be found in the fields|
There was still plenty of loveliness to be found.
Would you like to see the tulip angel played by me, Amy, or both of us?
The yellow tulips must be the late bloomers. There were more yellow tulips left than any of the other colors.
|Flower in full bloom|
|Amy was partial for these blended pink/orange tulips|
While I preferred those with multiple yet distinct colors.
And Amy found several of her favorites out in full bloom.
The next stop on our itinerary - Erie Mountain Lookout and Deception Pass. Check those out in my next post!
