Earlier this week we had the chance to visit the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon. It is a sight to be seen! Our beautiful Evergreen State never ceases to amaze me. After what felt like the dreariest winter, these tulips were a breath of fresh air. Speaking of fresh air, the wind was so strong when we first got there that it made for some pretty funny blooper photos. Julian is not a fan of the wind and the poor guy had a full on toddler meltdown when we first arrived. Mom life you guys, mom life. Luckily, the day turned around with a little help from some cheddar bunnies (thus the snack cup in every photo) and we all got to enjoy the majestic fields. They are even more gorgeous in person! If you have never been, or even if you have, it is a MUST!
They don’t allow pets into the gardens so we had to leave Jet Pup while we wandered around. But we were able to stop at a field off the road and let him explore a bit. Driving around “Tulip Town,” as it’s called, is such a pretty and scenic way to spend an afternoon. I highly recommend stopping at Roozengaarde so you are able to walk around and see the tulips up close. Be sure to wear boots though! It gets really muddy as you can see from these photos! We were doing some major off-roading with Julian’s stroller. Also, if your schedule allows, weekdays are much less crowded, but still plenty busy.
It was fun to look back at our visit from last year’s festival and see how much my little man has grown. And also fun to see how much the blog has grown! It is crazy to think that I was just at those same fields with my baby last year, and now this year with my toddler and another baby on the way. Never would I have imagined that! But I am feeling so grateful for my family, and grateful to live in such a beautiful state. Okay, I think we’ve heard enough from the pregnancy hormones.
