Tip toe through the tulips.

No, this isn't a scanned postcard, it is a photo taken last week when the kiddos and I headed up to the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Tulips are my favorite flower in the whole wide world. So each year that I have lived in WA state, I make it a point to take the drive north and treat myself to this wonderful experience. This field of tulips is located at Tulip Town. One of two must stops for me whenever I visit the festival.

Notice how dirty Bubby is? He had a great time running on the path, finding clumps of dirt and throwing "dirt bombs". We only received a few "get your child under control" looks. Which made me laugh. If you cannot let a 3 year old boy get his energy out in an open field, not aiming at people, where can I ask are these little energy balls supposed to have fun?? It was a bit nostalgic as well. You see, The General was about Bubby's age the first time we visited the tulip fields. Guess what? He too loved to throw dirt bombs!

Here are my kiddos posing in front of one of the tulip beds at Roozengard's, another must visit stop in Mount Vernon. You'll notice that Tulip Town is more of the open fields, while Roozengard's has more flower bed displays.

You could spend the whole day here, just enjoying the views. The peace, the quiet, and the home-made fudge wasn't too bad either.

A little snuggle time with Mommy & Bubby. It doesn't get any better than this! (Didn't The General do a great job with this picture?)


  1. i remeber sending my flat stanly to you and you took him there.... oh so beautiful!

  4. I love, love this post, so so pretty. So sweet and tender the snuggle, but to have a snuggle amoungst all that beauty from the Lord is a moment to treasure!

  5. I often look back at my "Washington" scrapbook pages... the tulip farms had to be my favorite! I just love it! I HAVE to bring my husband and hyper child to see you guys soon!
