Past Due

When: Sunday, April 27, 2008

What: Adult Field Trip

Who: The Usual Suspects: T, Snookums, Mars, J, and Mo

Where: Skagit Valley Tulip Festival
I should have posted this weeks ago. Better late than never right?
We started out the day at my place around 10:00 AM. We did the green thing by squeezing 5 adults in a Sentra for the ride north.
J drove.

Snookums rode shotgun and dee-jayed for us.

T, Mars, and I did our thing from the backseat. At first this was all we saw.

I'm not going to lie to you and say we weren't worried. We thought we might have missed the blooms.

Fortunately, we were wrong with our initial reaction. We were treated to fields and fields of beauty.

Pictures never quite do justice do they?

Nature continues to amaze me. All the flowers began like this and with care and love, grow into this .

Mars and J lapped T, Snookums, and me as we made our way around the fields. Of course, I was the one snap, snap, snapping away. I'll take a pictures of the most random things that catch my eye. Such as Thankfully my peeps get this about me. They just let me be me. I'm also the one stopping along the way and asking random strangers if they would like a group shot or someone to take their picture for them.

After a day in the fields and the ride back, we went for Ivar's, a Northwest tradition since 1938. We love us some clam chowder and fish 'n chips.
After a nap, Mars went with me to watch the man play flag football in the shadow of the Space Needle.

He's down there I promise.

All in all, it was a wonderful day. Once again, I feel so very blessed to have such wonderful people in my life whom I love and love me. Thanks for being a part of my life.
Peace and Love Peeps.

What gorgeous photos! I have never gone to the festival because I've heard the traffic is horrible, but that looks like it might be worth it.

Glad you had such a good time. Friends really are a blessing.

Throw caution to the wind and go. There was some traffic but it was not unbearable. It's worth it in my opinion.
