This morning we set out on yet another tree hunt. Derek searched on the internet for a tree farm near our house, but when you live in the city there just aren't any. We ended up at a tree farm in Olympia, about 30 minutes south. This is the best tree farm I have ever seen! It is fairly new so the trees are in great shape. The only draw back is the tallest trees were only around 6 1/2 - 7 feet tall. The trees were dark green, bushy and sheared to perfection. The ground was covered in perfect green moss. Such a delight. Trees as far as the eye could see. The greatest thing about this particular tree farm is that in the fall they have a pumpkin patch. We figured next year we can take our family trip to the pumpkin patch and then return to the same place for our tree hunt. On Saturdays Santa visits from 12-4 and they decorate the old barn like a winter wonderland complete with a nativity scene.
Can you just picture the serenity? Our first family tree hunt. So picture perfect. Yeah right! It will be me chasing a 2 1/2 year old through a short forest while Derek wanders the rows of trees searching for just the right one.
I thought I would post a photo of our conquest. Here is our beautiful murdered tree. Can you feel its pain? It is gorgeous though!
Merry Christmas! Lisa
