Looking for adventure-or whatever comes our way.


Maegen Blue is the founder and editor of Sounds Fun Mom. She is a lifelong resident of the Puget Sound, and the mother of two active boys. A certificated teacher, Maegen holds a BA and MA from Western Washington University. She taught junior high school English for ten years, and she was twice recognized as her school’s teacher of the year. Maegen is a published writer, whose work has been featured in the Tacoma News Tribune as a community columnist. She is active in her church and local community but spends most of her non-blog time chasing after her boys and collapsing on the couch with her husband of 15 years (a former Decatur Gator-but let’s keep that quiet). Maegen welcomes your queries about advertising, freelance writing, or speaking engagements.

A Note From Maegen: Hi! My name is Maegen, and Sounds Fun Mom is my baby (Well, the 3rd one anyway). I also have two wild and crazy boys, one gorgeous rescue lab, and a long suffering husband. I grew up in Gig Harbor, and we now call Puyallup home. In between, I’ve lived in Kent and shuttled kids to preschool in Milton and speech therapy in Federal Way. We also still head over the bridge regularly to see grandma. When I say I know the South Sound, I’m not kidding!

While I love Seattle, what I always wanted was a site that would give me the scoop on South Sound family fun-things we could go do without filling our gas tank and emptying our wallets. I love to write about our favorite adventures, and I love to help readers discover the South Sound-truly the only place in the world I’d ever want to live. Whether you’re looking for a ballet school in Auburn, a toddler park in Tacoma, a playground in Gig Harbor, or a bargain movie in Federal Way-Sounds Fun Mom aims to be your go-to spot.

If you’re stumbling on this site for the first time-welcome! If you’re looking for something in particular, don’t be shy about dropping me a line. I love to help my readers, and I love to hear your tips and suggestions, too! We also have a fun and growing community of parents at the Sounds Fun Mom Facebook page.

I do hope you’ll stick around a bit and consider making this site a regular stop. You can get an idea of what we have to offer by checking some of the fun stuff in the menu bar. You might also consider subscribing to my emails so you don’t miss a thing! I have something new just for your South Sound family every single day with big lists of weekend events every Friday.

and now for some boring, legal stuff…..
