best playgrounds in the northwest and seattle center for kids

A very pinterest-worthy playground in the Northwest (Artists at Play, Seattle Center)

July 13, 2015

I always read these lists of best playgrounds in the world and there are never any west coast, North American playgrounds in them.  Maybe people think we get too much rain here? Or maybe we keep our parks a secret.  But lately we’ve had endless sunny skies and we’ve been outdoors all the time and […]

My current favorite lunch spot in Pike Place Market (Seattle, WA)

March 26, 2015

I’ve been volunteering at the Pike Place Market in Seattle for a little while now and I’m still surprised that every time I visit I find some place that’s new to me.  There are so many neat little shops and vendors and they are all so unique-the other day I found myself in a corridor […]

So many lovely days start off with pancakes and although this past weekend wasn’t a pancake weekend, (I’ll let you know about our fun and wild adventures from this weekend’s trip to Whistler soon enough!) the morning of our hiking adventure in Discovery Park with our kids was and I hope we can repeat this […]

One really awesome thing: Mini Metropolitan Market at the Children’s Museum (Seattle, WA)

March 19, 2014

I would have loved this as a kid and I bet you would have too.  At the Seattle Children’s Museum they have an area where the kids can scan items on a real cash register like they have in real stores. We played blow-out sale at Mini Metropolitan Market this morning with our shopping carts […]
