Roses are red; violets are blue; if you live in the South Sound, there is so much to do!
Pretty good, huh? Seriously, there was almost too much going on to list this weekend. In fact, if you’re looking for a quick idea for your Friday morning or afternoon, I left that stuff right here for you.
As always, if you’re headed North or South of Sounds Fun Mom territory, I invite you to check out the list over at ThriftyNWMom, courtesy of Sia of-Centsible in Seattle (still love that name). This usually goes up Friday morning. If you don’t see it yet, sit tight. Read on for this weekend’s picks for south sound family fun.
