spring is in the air

Today my friend Rachel and I went to the Tulip Festival in Mt. Vernon. We loaded up the bug with two bikes, a cooler of food, and stopped at Starbucks for a triple tall carmel macchiato and then headed north.
First stop, lululemon outlet. Purchase: funky mantra pants and two fun tank tops.

Second stop, tulip festival office. Free: a map and directions on where to ride our bikes to see the fields.
Thrid stop: Red Apple and port-a-potty. Purchase: Tim Cascades salt and vinegar chips and two aquafinas.
Finally, we were reading for our adventure. We started off heading west and looked to the left and right, but no tulips...none...anywhere. You'd think the lady at the tulip festival office would have informed us of the lack of blooming flowers....but no. So we saw a few fields of daffodils, talked to a nice lady at an espresso stand, took pictures of ourselves and the local wildlife...things we may not have noticed if the tulips were blooming I guess.

I kind of maybe want to move to the country now and grow veggies and fruit to sell at farmers markets...

And why wasn't I invited? This sounds like the perfect day!

That looked like fun! Except the bike riding of course. I am going to move to the country, grow lavendar and garlic and hopefully sell things at the farmer markets. Should be an experience.
