Laura & Grace klompen dance around Centennial Park (Picture by Aunt Sabrina)Tulip Time in Holland is one of the many highlights of living in West Michigan!

With tens of thousands of tulips planted throughout the downtown, Centennial Park, along Tulip Lane (where my late grandma lived for over 50-years), and behind Herrick Library-- the setting possibilities for a family photo are endless.
