*Mothers Day Edition*: What's On This Weekend: May 12-14

We checked out the tulips in Holland earlier this week to beat the crowds and enjoy the rare shot of sunshine. I hadn't been since I was little, and it was jaw-droppingly gorgeous. We wandered around downtown for hours, then on a whim stopped by one of the parks for a little more floral enjoyment.

So that's my recommendation for the weekend. Tulips. They're awesome.
