L'Ecole No. 41 is one of my favorite wineries in Washington State! They are located in Eastern Washington just outside of Walla Walla, and are well established as one of the older and accomplished vineyards in the area. Their Reisling and Luminesce are two of my favorite white wines for sipping, and their Estate Perigee and Syrah are two beautiful reds that I love to hang onto for a special occasion!
The Monteillet Fromagerie is a small farm outside of Walla Walla where Joan and Pierre-Louis Monteillet make their own fresh goat and sheep milk cheeses. You can pay their darling farm a visit by calling ahead, or visit their baa baa tasting room on Main Street in downtown Walla Walla for samples and shopping!
Forgeron Cellars in Walla Walla Washington has an incredible lineup of big, bold Bordeaux style red wines. Our absolute favorite was the Cabernet Sauvignon. They also have a tasting room in Woodinville, only 30 minutes outside of Seattle!
If you are a parent in the PNW or Seattle area, an annual membership at the Woodland Park Zoo is an amazing decision! The membership is extremely affordable and pays for itself in only a few visits. Even if you do not live directly in the city of Seattle, weekdays are a perfect time to visit with ample parking and minimal lines. I absolutely suggest a Woodland Park Zoo membership to any PNW families!
A fun mommy-daughter summer day out at Golden Gardens Park in Seattle WA. A beautiful park with sandy beaches in Ballard. It usually is a little too busy to find a spot to relax on a weekend, but this Tuesday it was perfect!
Seven Hills Winery in Walla Walla is one of the older and more respected wineries in the area. Their tasting room is located in an easily accessible location in downtown Walla Walla, walking distance from the Marcus Whitman Hotel and dozens of other wineries to taste at. They feature Bordeaux style reds and we enjoyed every sip we tasted. Truly, a must-visit while you are enjoying Walla Walla wine country!
Matthews Winery in Woodinville, WA recently gave their tasting room a face lift, and we stopped by with friends to check it out! It was a beautiful atmosphere with a great lineup of wines to boot. They are participating members in the Woodinville Passport program. We love them because they are open until 6 unlike other wineries in that area that close early, and the atmosphere is very family friendly.
It is time for Seattle Restaurant Week Again! SRW is one of my favorite Seattle area events because it encourages trying something new! Here is a list of my Seattle Restaurant Week Best Values, and favorite places I suggest you try!
Doing one of our favorite things to celebrate our anniversary... attending a Seattle Sounders game with friends! We planned out a full day starting at Fado Irish Pub, walked to the March to the Match in Occidental Square, then watched the game afterwards. We treated ourselves to seats in the Delta Sky Club (Section 206) and had an absolute blast!
