TREAT YOURSELF...and Fido too

 Acres of golden daffodils and the early April rainy days tell us...

...the TULIPS are coming. 
It won't be long before the fields are ablaze with tulips of every color and we'll be welcoming the crowds of visitors who come to admire them. If you're new to the area, The Skagit Valley Tulip Festival has an interactive map with GPS coordinates to help you plan your trip.

Strolling through tulip fields is a great way to spend an afternoon but please, leave Fido at home. Understandably, the tulip farmers can't provide areas for them to romp BUT that doesn't mean they're left out of the celebration. Several places on the Tulip trail, including Skagit River Produce, Rexville Grocery, La Crema Coffee & Roastery and Snow Goose Produce carry Blue Collar Dog Treats so you can take a little something home to prevent pouting pups. Win-Win.

We enjoy the Tulip Festival so much that we package our baker's dozen pocket pack with our own tulip label.

So grab the kids and your camera and head up I-5 to enjoy the tulip fields. Plan for changeable weather. Forget the diet for the day. Come hungry! There are many great places to have lunch but leave room for the incredible ice cream cones. Take home bunches of tulips and some Blue Collar Dog Treats.

It's a wonderful way to spend a spring day in the Skagit Valley.
