We went to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival today, and you know what? I am not going to crop nor filter these photos. I can’t do it. The first half of our trip was spent at Tulip Town.
Like Kirsten Dunst in a 2001 movie, it was crazy beautiful. I’m so glad we made the drive. The tulips bloomed early this year, and we went on a Wednesday, and it was a little gray and drizzly outside, so there were no crowds. It was wonderful. The whole thing.
Well, Maddie’s mood wasn’t exactly wonderful the whole time, but what are you going to do? The girl has a lot of feelings. And one of those feelings is “I don’t want to put my head in the Tulip Fairy hole.”
Another is “I don’t want to hold my umbrella.”
But man, those tulips.
Finally, Maddie had a hot dog, and Memere bought her tulips, and it was good.
On our way to Schuh Farm for ice cream and goat shenanigans, we found this incredible daffodil field.
And finally, the ice cream and goat shenanigans you were promised.
Then home, with an armful of tulips.
