Enjoying the 4th of July in Bellevue, stay-cation style!

Holidays are always so fun spent with family, but when you have little kids it sure can be stressful! Especially when you add in long travel and wait times to the equation. So, this year for the 4th of July we decided to try a fun staycation in downtown Bellevue to enjoy the festivities and fireworks at close range. We booked a hotel room, walked to the park, swam and ate our hearts out! It was such a perfect 4th of July... if you live in the greater Seattle area be sure to give this a read and give yourself some staycation inspo!
