Tulip Town

Adventures With My Corgi Morty

My Pembroke-Welsh Corgi Morty- Tulip Town 2023

I challenged myself upon arriving to Washington State that every week I was going to do something. Whether that being big or small, I just did not want to stay home. After working with my therapist, we developed healthy coping mechanisms for helping me manage my mental health issues, because staying at home and sleeping in bed all day is not an option.

My dog Morty is a huge part of that ability to motivate me and keep going every day. He is my ESA (Emotional Support Animal) and I got him back in 2019. Since then Morty has been my ride or die buddy. He's traveled across the country 3 times with me, and more importantly he keeps me calm. So you will notice in a lot of the upcoming articles I write you will see him featured multiple times. Because wherever I go he goes. We are a duo.

He also has been a support system to my kids who both are on the autism spectrum. My youngest being completely non verbal and the other being high functioning. So truly he's been therapeutic to all of us, and he pretty much goes everywhere with me if he can. He has an wandering spirit that's seen the Grand Canyon, California, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Chicago, and now Washington. Today's adventure took us to Tulip Town in Mount Vernon, WA!

This place is a seasonal family farm where the tulips are in full bloom and attract thousands of people every year to Washington state! This place is perfect to get those perfect Instagram pictures or you just want to get a nice family photo of your kids for once. They also have photography passes where you can spend the entire day photographing these beautiful flowers or again if you are an aspiring photographer looking to do family mini photoshoots this is a great way to build up that portfolio.

There's tons of flowers everywhere! They have tons of colors, and even have tractor rides that you can go on and see the property which is really nice. Lots and lots of photo opportunities. There's even a barn onsite with some cute little shops and food inside! And yes- Washington is known for it's micro breweries all over. Here it was no different there was multiple different beers on tap. They also had multiple little photo prompt areas that are even hand painted, or a gas wall with fresh tulips in it as well. Very Instgrammable spots in my opinion for people of all ages.

And the best part? They allow dogs! There's a couple of farms that are apart of this festival and some don't allow dogs! So this one does and I got a ton of cute pictures of Morty and this other dog I was dog sitting! I will say it does get windy so bring a light jacket, and wear close toed shoes if you decide to go because there is a lot of dirt. So in a nut shell if it rains it'll be muddy!

So if you want something fun to do with the family next year in April, I highly recommend checking out the Tulip Festival in Mount Vernon, WA. It's super pretty and there's tons of flowers every where. It's definitely a family affair. I also would recommend buying your tickets online because they are $2 cheaper.

    I moved to Washington when I was 17 because it was the coolest place I had ever been. I have since moved away. Thank you for sharing your pictures. We loved this place in the springtime. Have you been to Snoqualmie Falls yet?
