Tulips, Sales And Picnics

Today was a great day. We ventured north to Mount Vernon and enjoyed the first weekend of the 2012 Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Although the tulips were far from filled in, the colors and fun were all over at Tulip Town.

We didn't venture inside the main structure this time, but we did make a loop around the outside of the field and even caught a quick trip around on the tractor. The day was the most relaxing and fun day I can remember having in quite some time.

After we finished a beautiful picnic lunch at Tulip Town, we headed back into downtown Mt. Vernon for a visit to the world's largest garage sale. We hoped that this one would be bigger than the one in Monroe, and thankfully, it was. We didn't buy much, but we did have a great time checking out all the fun old stuff.

From there, we took the Old Pacific Highway home through Stanwood and then continued through Marysville before finally heading home.

Today was just a great day. The flowers and weather were beautiful, the lunch was fantastic and the company was perfect. I think we definitely have to plan out more days this summer like this one. It was just too perfect.
