While we were in WA we drove up the Olympic peninsula and spent the day in Sequim, a little town nestled in a sunny microclimate which allows it to be the lavender capital of North America.
We were mainly in town to visit the Olympic Game Farm but we stopped by one of the many lavender farms to look around.
Besides the incredible smell the most remarkable thing about the farm was the sound. Walk a few feet into the fields and you're surrounded on all sides by the loud droning of bees. They were everywhere and made E nervous; Mimi was oblivious (as she often is).
The kids were feeling squirrely after being in the car all day, and so this is what happened when I asked my mom to take my picture with them.
After a pep talk (and a teeny bit of yelling) I got them to take a better photo with my mom.
Sequim is a great place to visit if you're in the area. We usually do a day trip every time we visit my parents and I always look forward to it. Check out little baby E here on a previous visit.
