Our wicked fun tulip farm adventure



On a nice spring day in early May, the girls and I headed to the Wicked Tulips Flower Farm after school. The farm was about an hour drive from our place. It was an afternoon full of exploration, picking some beautiful tulips, and enjoying the breathtaking views of the farm. 





N has been learning all about the life cycle of the lady bug at school. She and her friends have been really into finding lady bugs and little worms, and it's amazing how easily they spot these creatures from their vantage points. She was clearly more into bugs than flowers but that's all right. Picking flowers later on was way more enjoyable than just watching them.



The girls chased butterflies, talked about the signs of spring, and their favorite colors of tulips. The day was a little chilly when we first left home, but the sun came out soon after we reached the farm and one by one, all clothing layers started to come off.



The weather continued to be nice and warm and soon the farm was bustling with visitors and tulip lovers. Children were running around, people were picking all varieties of tulips, and there were beautiful colors and happy, springy vibes everywhere!




We first spent time in the 'viewing only' section of the farm, and gradually walked over to the picking area. We soon realized that the little wicker baskets were so cute to carry, however, not too practical for the girls so we switched over to the red buckets. And then the picking fun began...




It was such a lovely experience. This was not only the girls' but also my first visit to a tulip farm. I love our random little adventures. We brought back a big bunch of tulips, and the girls couldn't stop talking about the farm for days.
