We have already had the chance to do some super fun activities such as BBQ'ing out with friends, dined out on the waterfront in Kirkland, took our daughter to her first movie in Woodinville, and hit a concert at Marymoor Park. We have trips planned to Roche Harbor and Lake Chelan, in addition to plans to hit up Bumbershoot. What are we missing, and what are you up to Seattle?
