Patterson’s autumn attractions offered a little bowling game, rubber ducky derby water spout races and a ball toss game. And it’s all free.
Yesterday we hiked – in the rain! We came prepared with waterproof jackets, so this California girl actually thought it was pretty magical. This kidventure started at the Tacoma Nature Center. We met up with new school friends there to explore its forest-inspired Discovery Pond playground, where all its play structures are designed to look like boulders and trees. There’s a treehouse, climbing rocks and a metal slide inside a hollow log! All made complete with slatted bridges and little creeks to explore.
Save this post for your PNW Bucket List! Here we are at Bella Bella Beach, a new-to-us spot on Fox Island. It’s officially called the Tacoma DeMolay Sandspit, but the locals here call it by the name of the road it’s on. Does telling you this make us locals yet? 😉
Review of Silver Cloud Hotel Tacoma at Point Ruston Waterfront
Snazzy waterfront views of Commencement Bay are just one of the cool things about Tacoma Washington’s famous Waterwalk at Point Ruston.
The Alderbrook Resort & Spa in Union Washington is a dreamy Pacific Northwest getaway boasting rooms with a view, rare Hood Canal waterfront access, and the absolute coolest and most whimsical surprises during the holidays. We felt pampered and taken care of — and we can’t wait to go again. At the Alderbrook Resort & Spa in Union Washington, I felt safer with the hotel’s thoughtful pandemic protocols such as hand sanitizer stations everywhere, clear rules posted, and a well-organized crowd-control reservation system at the pool area. Plus, they implemented all these in cozy/home-like ways that weren’t sterile or scary which I appreciate for my little fam.

We made it to our very FIRST Washington pumpkin patch yesterday 🎉 and it checked off all the boxes: ✔️…
Potlatch is an 84-acre park with camping and water access, also along the Hood Canal. I think it’s a little more scenic than Twahna because of the fallen logs and visible tree-capped hillsides. It also has … buried treasure! Read on to see what we found 🙂
It’s been eight weeks since we moved to Washington. And while we are househunting, we are livin’ it up in a family cabin on a golf course along the Hood Canal.
If you ever travel to the Pacific Northwest, make sure to put the Alderbrook Golf Club and the Hood Canal on your bucket list.
Let me tell you about Twanoh Creek – because the kids and I love a good creek.
You’ll find this one at Twanoh State Park, in Union Washington.
