Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! As you all know I’ve been a pink peony enthusiast for years (hence the name of this blog ;) so being able to experience a peony farm while in Washington a couple weeks ago was a dream come true! I’ve been getting a ton of questions about which farm we visited, how we liked it, what our experience was like and if we would recommend it, so today I’m taking you through our trip to the peony farm! And if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask them in the comments below.
Two years ago when I was pregnant with Jackson we went to the Skagit Tulip Festival and it was such an incredible experience (see more photos here) and ever since then we had been dying to go back! So we planned another trip to Washington but this time to see peonies (yay!!!!). Although it was a little different it was nice that we had been before so we knew what we were getting ourselves into.
On Sunday morning we loaded the babies in our rental car and headed out of Seattle and into Bellingham/Skagit County. But before we made our usual McDonald’s breakfast pitstop! Drew and I listened to music while Isla Rose and Jackson slept. We love long drives so it was really enjoyable and relaxing!!
When we arrived I thought I was in heaven! We took a ride around the farm and looked at raspberry bushes, cows, fields of strawberries and ENDLESS peonies! The best part was cutting our own fresh peonies. Isla Rose and I walked around cutting our favorite peonies that we picked out ourselves while Jackson was busy digging in the dirt (boys will be boys! haha he was perfectly content in the dirt!). Before we headed back to Seattle we found the most incredible strawberry farm and we all shared FOUR boxes on our drive back. We also stopped at the lululemon outlet on the way back which was amazing!!
It was such a fun Sunday spent with my little family. I’m glad we have these photos to look back on and remember how much fun we had discovering new places and making memories! Drew and I are actually headed somewhere tropical today… any guesses where to?!
Thanks so much for reading!
