The Life of Bon: There was a Festival. And there were Tulips.

There was a Festival. And there were Tulips.

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Tree Top, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #TreeTopInc #raisinggoodapples

This spring I have been trying to get my family out to do more activities. Utah is a gorgeous state and has so much to offer in terms of outdoors activities. So my goal for this spring and summer is to do one new activity each week. Things we've never tried, places we've never been, mountains we've never climbed. Let's do this!

New Adventure #1:  

I don't even know if I can classify the tulip festival as an "adventure" since it is literally a mile from where we live and involved a very leisurely stroll. But it is something I've been wanting to do for a few years and every spring it manages to come and go without us ever getting out to see it. So this year I was determined. I was puking that morning (not pregnant!) and it was windy and threatening rain, but gosh I was stubborn about seeing those tulips. And we did! We tuliped the crap out of that festival.

^^^ Might just be my favorite picture of all time.  Greg is getting quite good behind the lens.

^^ Greg said I can't wear these jeans anymore because they show my Mormon undies (actually known as garments- information is here if you wanna know) so now I just wear leggings underneath and the problem is solved!  They're still pretty grungy, but gosh the and comfort level just can't be beat.

I am very wise in my old age in that I have learned to never go anywhere without food for June.  And now that she is a bit older it doesn't mean she has to be attached to my chest every moment.  It's amazing!

For our Tulip Festival outing I brought along some Tree Top applesauce in little pouches.  It is perfect for on the go adventures, is delicious (June scarfs it down) and is still healthy as can be.  (No sugar in the plain apple variety, made with wholesome ingredients and real fruit.)  I love that June can (almost kinda sorta) feed herself with these bad boys.

A little bit about the company- located in the heart of Washington’s apple country, Tree Top is a grower-owned co-op, deeply rooted in the communities where we work and live. For more than 50 years, Tree Top has been a trusted brand dedicated to delivering top-quality products and premium ingredients such as juices, smoothies and sauces. Check their site out here.

For those of you who have young babes, the Tree Top applesauce pouches are AWESOME because they are half the price of regular baby food pouches. I pay over $1 for every little baby food pouch I get for June and the Tree Top applesauce pouches were $2 for a pack of four. The trick is to look in the applesauce section, not the baby food section. I picked mine up at the Smith's in Lehi. (Also they have lots of flavors like mango applesauce, cinnamon applesauce, mixed berries applesauce, etc.)

They're not just for babies, either. It's just applesauce, so a person of any age can enjoy the convenient treat.

And they give back! In an effort to bring awareness to “Raising Good Apples”, Tree Top is partnering with the National Gardening Association’s to help educate kids on gardening. For every box of Tree Top Apple Sauce Pouches purchased through 5/31 Tree Top will donate $1 to help to help build and grow youth gardens. For more information go here.

LASTLY... there's a giveaway!  Because why not?  Tree Top is giving away one “Kid’s Gardening Kit” to one of my readers. The giveaway kit will consist of: “My Gardening Journal”, Red Tubrug pail, Kids gardening gloves, Watering can, Soft touch hand tool set, Favorite Five Sprouting seeds, and Tree Top Apple Sauce Pouches. The giveaway will go today through Monday, May 4th.

To enter all you have to do is leave a comment telling me what spring outing you would take with your family and your Tree Top applesauce pouches!
