A little break from the ordinary


Now that our kids are getting older ~ it’s becoming harder to find times when we can go and do things as a family.  Our two daughters were on spring break from their college classes and no one had to work ~ so on Monday we decided to take a trip to see if we could see the snow geese and view the daffodils in bloom.  It was a special treat to have Annaleah and little Benjamin come along with us too!

The tulips will be blooming in this area soon and the fields will be filled with even more color!


I did think the daffodil fields were quite pretty as well!


These are from the display garden that we visited!


Snow geese out in the field


They’re kind of hard to see ~  but if you click on the picture to enlarge it ~ the little white spots are actually the snow geese!  It was amazing to see a large flock of them flying at once!

It’s fun to enjoy a little change of pace now and then ~ but it always feels so nice to come home !

I hope you all are enjoying a blessed week so far!

  3. Hi Deby ~

    These pictures were taken in the Skagit Valley. Since our girls were able to go, we decided to enjoy what we could even though the tulips weren’t blooming yet. The daffodils were pretty though! 🙂

    I hope you are enjoying a blessed day!


  4. Hi Susan ~

    The daffodils were very pretty. We saw a really cute house for sale right across the street from one of the daffodil fields ~ wouldn’t that be a lovely view to look out on! 🙂

    Blessings to you,

  5. Hi Teri ~

    It was a fun day trip. A couple from our church had been up to see the snow geese and the husband had talked about it. I’m glad we got a chance to see some on the ground and some in flight as well. This area should be really busy when the tulips are in bloom.

    Blessings on your day!


  6. What lovely photos. They remind me of my home county in England, Cornwall, where daffodils are also grown for market. Fields of sunshine!

  7. Sharon, you live in such a beautiful area of the country. I love the mountains! Our daffodils are starting to come up but nothing is open yet.

  8. Lovely pics Sharon! It is so nice to spend time with the family, just looking at nature and being together. Sounds like the perfect day.
