Last week Halcyone, Tom's mom, and I spent the day up in the Skagit valley. We walked around La Connor, ate a great lunch, and wandered around the tulip gardens and daffodil fields. Halcyone thought she wanted to walk in the puddles, but didn't care for the slimy mud that sucked on her boots in the bottom of them. While we were walking around the fields, a tractor drove past us to pick up fresh picked flowers. Most of the amazed faces you'll see on Halcyone below are due to her love of the tractor. Should probably would have stayed next to it for a very long time before admitting she was hungry or cold.
