Summer is different this year, but it doesn’t have to be a bummer! We have dozens of great things you can do with the kids this summer.
Are you ready? Here’s our South Sound Summer Guide! It’s all our most popular summer posts in one handy place! We’ll have it here on our home page for a bit, and then it will go up in our menu bar, where you’ll be able to drop down to select individual posts (handy if you like your fun in slightly smaller doses).
If you read us on your phone, you can expand the menu by clicking on that little square with the lines (Does that have a name? Does everyone know this but me?). As always, I’m also glad to help you find things. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or come holler at me on the Facebook page. Let’s have the Best Summer Ever!
For those of you who prefer your fun in smaller doses, don’t worry! I’ll continue to have new, daily posts all summer long.
