Daffodils Baby!

Yesterday my little fam and I drove to La Conner, Wa to see the daffodils in bloom. We normally go a little later in the season to see all of the tulips, but we had the perfect opportunity to get away yesterday, so we took it!

We had a blue-sky drive, our son Leif was chatting in the backseat playing with his toys while Miles and I listed to Trampled by Turtles. We laughed and shared some of our day dreams. While driving on Interstate 5, I was humbled, as I am on every drive through our beautiful home state. The diverse landscape is truly staggering,  in a matter of 30 minutes we saw three different mountains (Rainier, Baker, Pilchuck), the Olympic Range, the Puget Sound, and fields of various crops. Spring in the Pacific Northwest is an incredible thing to behold.

My husband is an avid photographer. Some of my favorite shots of his are of the La Conner tulip fields. We try to go every year. Here are a few of Miles’ shots from yesterday.

I love reading about everything. I'm not a book snob. Lately I have been "reading" a lot of picture books to my toddler and baby. In my past life before motherhood, I was a professional technical editor and writer.

  2. Thanks for sharing your family’s day out with us. ALL of the photos are fantastic! Your hubby is very good at his job. We have a sunflower field nearby that only blooms for a short few weeks in late summer and people come in droves to take photos of their kids there. I must admit though, I’m quite partial to the ones you posted of little Leif sitting in the grass. Lovely. And the one where he’s sticking his tongue out, just a bit, is adorable. ❤

    Thanks for bringing a smile to my day, Rachel!

    Melissa 🙂

    1. Thank you Melissa. It was a wonderful day with the family. I bet those sunflowers are beautiful! We don’t have any fields of sunflowers around here. Maybe when they are in bloom where you live you can snap a few pictures so your readers can see them. 🙂
