Rough picture of a picture but such a fond memory. This is 1998 with my then almost year old niece Sydney at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. Hey family and friends in the Vancouver area, now is the time to head south just an hour or so from home to see the gorgeous fields of tulips on display in the LaConner area. There may even be some daffodils left too. This was a yearly trip for me when I lived in Van and in my opinion, amazing and well worth the little drive. Plus if you are in the area, on the shopping side of the highway in Burlington, there is awesome mexican food to be had at taqueria los jarritos. We have never had a bad meal there. Great prices and service and a for sure stop when south of the border. This post has become a bit of an advertisement but honestly if I had some extra $$$ right now, I'd most likely be headed to the tulips.
