I LOVE flowers. I was so disappointed last year when we didn't get the chance to drive up to the Skagit Valley and see the annual Tulip Festival. The Tulip Festival is a month long "festival" with different activities and events going on throughout the month. The daffodils and tulips are in bloom during the month and it makes for absolutely breathtaking scenery.
I (easily) convinced Peter that we needed to take the day and see this site. We were so glad we did! We left mid-morning and ate lunch at a yummy little cafe. Then we drove around the area looking at the various fields. We stopped at Tulip Town and took a "hayride" through the fields and looked at some tulip displays. We also drove through Deception Pass State Park (pictures to follow in another post). All in all it was a glorious day. The boys had a great time getting dirty (pictures to follow) and we cnjoyed the sunshine, warmer weather and of course the company.
This is a MUST SEE in the Seattle area!!
This was a rainbow field. Lines upon lines of different colors and varieties. And the beautiful mountains in the distance.
Pretty pink tulips
Daffordils. The daffodils bloom earlier so I was glad we went in time to see them! I love daffodils.
This red color was gorgeous!! The pictures just don't even do it justice!!
I'll post some family pictures later this week!
