the christmas season may be one of my favorite,lets chalk it up to the music, the decorations, and families coming together. i do however, wish that the season lasted longer than just a month. being that the season is so short, last year we decided to start the christmas tradition of setting out on an adventure the day after thanksgiving to find the perfect christmas tree (or two 🙂 )
we like to visit the washougal river christmas tree farm, not only are they family friendly but they are also pet friendly so your fur children can join the fun as well! not to mention, the staff is incredibly nice and any tree you pick is only $35! medium, large, extra-large, nobles, grand firs, you name it… any tree you pick out will only be $35.
if you’ve never cut down your own christmas tree before (yes, crazy right? those people do exist!) make sure you dress warm and wear clothes that you do not mind getting dirty! you have to get down on the ground to cut that tree of yours! the christmas tree farm supplies you with a dolly to help carry your tree and the saw. once you bring it up to them, they’ll make a fresh (and straight, because who are you kidding, yours won’t be even keel!) cut, shake the dead needles off your tree and wrap it up with twine for ya! super simple!
sloan absolutely loves this tradition! every year she gets to ride elvis (the donkey), drink hot cocoa and visit with all the barn animals. this year – she even picked out her very own tiny tree!**if cutting your own tree is not for you, don’t worry! they offer pre-cut tree’s as well!
