Carlsbad Flower Fields

1)


This weekend we took the kids to see the Carlsbad Flower Fields. In my mind, I had thought that the place was somewhere in the desert where wildflowers bloomed every spring. In actuality, it is a flower farm where they grow rows and rows of Ranunculus flowers in every color imaginable. They also have a wagon ride which takes you around the perimeter of the property. It was definitely worth it because it will take you to the top of the hill over looking the flower fields. You get an amazing view of the flower fields and the ocean from up there. We got there at noon which is of course the worse time of the day to take outdoor photos due to the harsh bright light. I didn't get too many usable outdoor shots. Thankfully we found a greenhouse which had an amazing orchid collection on display. I've been wanting to shoot some orchids for awhile now since my dad loves to collect and grow orchids.

It was very tiring herding the 3 kids through the farm. There was definitely a lot of wining coming from Megan and Ethan. Noah is also getting pretty heavy these days. I strapped him to the baby bjorn and I definitely felt a strain in my upper back at the end of day. Before we left the flower farm, we made a pit stop and refreshed ourselves with a strawberry shortcake sunday. Yummy!
