The weather is ugly today so sitting here working on client files my mind started to wander to all the great things, activities and adventure that can be found in our great state and especially here in Snohomish County. So join me in checking out some ideas for fun stuff to do to either get out of the rain or have fun in it!
One of my favorite little cities here in Snohomish County is our spotlight home today. If you have you eaten in the town center or been down there for one of the holiday events you know why. I love Azuls.. num, num.

If you are looking for great places to take the kids don’t miss warm beach and The Lights of Christmas. We have gone the last 5 years in a row and my kids love it! Close to home and right here in Snohomish County it is sure to please.
The other day as I was driving my sons to school, my middle son was complaining that he hated this time of year and the cold and rain. He said he wished we could move from our home in Snohomish County to Arizona where Grandpa and Grandma are now and where it’s always sunny and warm (when he was younger he use to say Arizona was “shiny”) My youngest piped in and said “Oh no you better think about this! You know how mom is always saying get outside and blow some stink off? If we lived in Arizona we would never get to play XBox!
As I smiled in the front seat and tried to contain my laughter I thought yes, Arizona is nice and I do love the sunshine but, I think in the Pacific Northwest we appreciate the sun more. We search for outside activities for when it is nice outside, regardless of the time of year, so we can run out and enjoy the beauty this great state of Washington has to offer.
So I say to all of you- Go outside and blow some stink off!
And here is a great list of ideas and links from parks to hikes and everything in between.
