Last week, our friend Amy told us she was picking us up for a surprise trip. All I knew was that we were supposed to wear rain boots & prepare for being outside. This totally tested my control issues when it comes to planning things … and even more, it tested my ability to ride in a car without getting completely carsick. Yes, I fully admit, I’m a disaster. As it turns out, the day turned out to be wonderful … control issues/car sickness avoided!
After driving for about an hour from Portland, we arrived at the Wooden Shoe Tulip Farm in Woodburn, Ore.
This place was a.w.e.s.o.m.e.
Here’s our adventure:
J teaching Amy to shoot with a split screen/microprism ring focus camera … my dad’s old SLR from the 80’s. Love it.
Jimmy has his very own tulip breed!
We were all very entertained by the fact that these giant clogs were wearable & moveable! A little moonwalking action followed.
J and Amy split an elephant ear, and I consumed the largest ice cream cone ever!
After the tulip farm, we tried finding a hazelnut farm (without success) … the drive ended up being awesome. We drove past the vineyards, and watched a storm roll in.
Lastly, we stopped in Mt. Angel to see the Glockenspiel clock. This was hilarious!
All of these characters danced as music played. I cannot imagine living in this building as it was the loudest. freaking. clock. ever.
Thanks Amy for an awesome adventure!! :)
