Yesterday we went on our annual Christmas tree hunt. We have often had to face green grass for our hunt but never rain before. This year, we got soaked… And mudded…
In years past, we would make a pretty far venture to a place about 30 minutes from home. Last year we realized their tree selection had kind of gone down hill so this year we decided to try somewhere new. We picked a place called Trees for Less because we had a $5 off coupon – score! And it ended up being a pretty cute well taken care of place. We actually got to drive right out to the trees which was a big improvement over previous years so it helped us maybe avoid a little rain and mud?!? We wanted balsam’s so that is the section we drove to.
I don’t know if I was being lazy or what but as soon as I got out of the car, I wanted the tree we were parked right next to!
It did make it pretty easy to just cut and load though! Mother dear took a little longer to decide but did finally pick one…
Someone really had a good time though and got completely covered in mud! He also really did not want to leave to go home and tried to run away with the worker :S
After we’d paid for our trees, we got to enjoy a little cup o hot chocolate in a cute little log cabin at the entrance!
Despite the not really winter like temps and the rain, it was a very fun morning!
