Daffodil Hill: Part I

Visiting Daffodil Hill was on my bucket list for California. I remember going as a child and being awed by all of the flowers. So, one Saturday morning, we packed a picnic, loaded up the kids and drove over to check it out. Fortunately, the rain stopped for a few days and it was GORGEOUS. Unfortunately, everyone else thought the weather was great too, and also decided to visit Daffodil Hill that day. I had intended to take some family pictures while there...hence all our matching attire...but with so many people, it really didn't happen. Oh well. Here are some pics from our day.


Gavin NEVER sits down while he's eating if he can help it...so here he is walking around while he munches on his lunch.
"Cheese"




While we were eating our lunch, a group of 4 or 5 deer came prancing onto the meadow. That was really cool!



Here's Gavin spying on them through the fence.





Jemma...she is recently into accessorizing. Cracks me up.

















Getting a picture of these three where they're all smiling is SO HARD! Enough said.








If everyone has a pleasant expression on their face, I call it a success. :)









Jemma snapped this one of Brandon and me.





And a man passing by offered to take this one of our family. Nice tongue, Gavin.



Fun tree.





And the only place I could find to set up the tripod that was not an inconvenience to the CROWD was in between our van and a neighboring vehicle before we left...yes, I brought a bench from home. My memory of Daffodil Hill was really fuzzy. I will NEVER attempt to take family pictures there again. Eesh. Next time I'll go with the sole purpose of enjoying the beauties of nature. I'll post pictures of that side of this excursion next time.

Well, even though you didn't get the family pictures you wanted, I think you all looked fabulous! Very cute outfits--they would have looked awesome with lots of daffodils. And they looked awesome anyway next to your car on your way out. :)

You guys look wonderful wherever you pose. Oh how I love Daffodil Hill. I'm sorry so many other people love it too and crowded it up.
