edventure saturdays

With living in a state with so much to offer, we decided to make each Saturday a family day. Find a different place to visit that is inexpensive, fun and even educational. We call these Saturday's Edventure Days as he's the one to find these gems, researches different options and has a list of places to chose from. I'm in charge of packed lunches and beverages. Then off we go.

So far we have been to:
a park nearby for a chilly hike.

a waterfall at Snoqualmie Falls.

Snowshoeing at Snoqualmie Pass/Gold Creek.

A medieval festival (we were a bit under-dressed).

Eagle watching at Skagit River and a visit to the fish hatchery.

We all look forward to our Saturdays. We're not letting the cold/clouds/rain (when there is rain) stop us. We knew we needed to take advantage of all there is to offer while we're here as who knows how long our stay will be. I'm so thankful for all the memories we've made so far. It's been an amazing adventure!

It's been a great way to bond as a family too. I'm glad we thought of this now and not two years down the road when we may be moving away from this place (and then try to squeeze everything in over a few months). Looking forward hearing about your summer MI-09 adventures!!
