This past weekend we decided to take the trek down to Skagit Valley to check out the Tulip Festival. I never knew looking at a bunch of flowers could be so exciting!
The festival itself runs for a month and is what the organizers consider a “driving festival” meaning there are a TON of farms with tulips on display and you drive around to them and check them out. We wanted a more intimate experience so we went to one of the two farms that welcome people to check out the tulips first hand.
We had a map on route and knew that we were getting close by the explosion of colour that broke the landscape colors of the grass and the farms. The huge kites flying above the farm helped guide our last final kilometers as we got closer to our destination. If the business of the parking lot was any indication of the quality of the farm, I knew we were in for a good day.
The parking was well organized though as manned volunteers guided us to our spots. I couldn’t believe how excited the kids were to get out of the car and check out the farm… my little one seeing all the people buzzing by and saying, “Mommy, I like this place.” He hadn’t even gotten out of the car!”
