Skagit

This March marked the third time the Tulip festival has rolled around since we moved to Washington. The first year we were still in temporary housing and knew nothing about anything, and last year, even though the Tulip festival did cross my radar, we didn't make it. As they say, the third time is the charm.

Nan and Pop Horne came for a visit in March, and because of the early bloom they were able to join us for our day trip up to the tulips. I don't know if they think that was lucky or not?

We did get great weather, but being early spring in Washington, things were still a bit wet. And muddy.



Funny enough, the first field we approached was actually daffodils. From the car one might assume yellow tulips (at the tulip festival), but nope.



We kept walking though, and did find the tulips. They were so cool.



All was well, for the most part. Until we chose the road less traveled.


Turns out there is a reason for that.


And my mom wonders why I travel with a change of clothes for each of the kids. If I was really on top of things I'd have a portable shower in the back of my car.

One of the coolest parts of the festival were the "display gardens." I have zero desire to work in a garden, but gosh I like looking at them.




We're going again next year for sure!
