Happy Friday and welcome to another installment of Family Friday! I love to share a bit about our family life and travels on here! Our kiddos go to year-round school, so they are currently on their Spring track break for 3 weeks and then Spring Break, so they'll be at home for a full month without school. We're not planning an out of town trip this year, like we have in the past, so we want to be sure to have lots of fun activities and nearby adventures! On their first weekend of track break, we decided to go on a little day trip to Death Valley. Death Valley National Park is having a super bloom this spring. The conditions were just right with the perfect amount of rainfall and light winds so what is normally a few spring flowers popping up here and there became into a field of yellow wildflowers blooming all over the desert! Apparently this is a pretty rare occurrence, so we packed up our car with lots of water and a picnic lunch and took the 2 hour drive to check it out. We were not the only ones with this idea! The park was full with people wanting to take a look and photograph this phenomenon!
We had a great time and we're so glad we got to see a different side of Death Valley than we had before. If you're in the area and have some time to go out there, check it out. It's not like a full field of wildflowers to run through or anything like that, but it is pretty neat to see so many flowers blooming in the desert!
