Picture Pick FriYAY: La Conner, Wa.

Miles and I typically visit the tulip fields every year in La Conner, Washington. We got a late start this year and it was the first sunny day in weeks. Which meant sheer and utter tourist chaos. We waited on a side street for 45 minutes before I said, “Let’s skip the tulips.”

I was sad to miss seeing them, but my son in the backseat was losing every ounce of toddler patience. (Which isn’t a lot to begin with.)

Here are some pictures of daffodils and tulips from years past.

These are two of my favorites that Miles took back in 2010:

Anyway, back to last Friday…

We decided to skip the tulips and go straight to the town of La Conner.

La Conner is a MUST SEE, if you are ever visiting Washington state. If you are a historical home junkie like myself, you will get your fix. The historical farms will take your breath away and the tiny town oozes charm.

LaConner, Wa.

You get a lovely mixture of farm and maritime life.

Look at my handsome travel companions. I’m a lucky gal! (Miles is really much happier than he appears. Ha!)

Sorry I didn’t capture more of the farm life and the tulips in La Conner, but there is always next year.

Happy FriYAY everyone!

  1. Purple tulips, awesome!! If you didn’t caption the image, I’d have thought that your hubby was more upset to miss the tulips than your son! ๐Ÿ™‚ Looks like La Conner is just as gorgeous…
