Baby J and I spent a special afternoon at the Abbotsford Tulip festive this week and it was like a little dose of happy medicine. I love getting flowers, so walking through fields of them was all kinds of good. And since the days of sunshine in Vancouver have been so few and far in between I felt a little bit lucky to end up there on a day filled with glorious sunshine! Wanna see some pics of a million tulips and the sweetest little flower picker? Keep scrolling…
This puddle was pretty much calling out to baby J – “just come kneel in me…that’s it, closer, closer, perfect.” So, if anyone out there is contemplating going, do yourself a big favour and a) don’t wear white and b) don’t wear white. Ha. Oh, and c) avoid heels, yes, there were a few pairs of those kicking around.
all the heart eyes for this picture.
Eeek! she’s about the same height as the flowers. Toddlers and tulips…(insert Julie Andrews voice here) these are a few of my favourite things!!!
Because you can’t go frolicking in the tulips without a little smooch, can you?
And now I will show you what happens when you wear white to a tulip field when there’s been more rain than sunshine…
Yup. Nice knowing you, stockings.
When can I move in?!
She was a tiny bit obsessed with this saddle. Funny because she despises the hobby horse we have at home, won’t let it near her. But no horse, no problem!
Such a lovely day. Totally worth the drive to take in the colour in the country! Also, we met a kind lady there who snapped this photo of the two of us and offered to email it to me. As luck would have it she is a photographer…thanks, Shannon!
p.s. a look at last year’s trip to the tulip festival.
