Memorial Day Staycation Ideas (1)So maybe you didn’t make camping reservations. You thought it might rain, right? You’re probably right. It’s certainly not too late to make the most of this long weekend! Create a no-fuss Northwest Staycation for your family. Here are some ideas:

Spend the day at NW Trek! Remember the post about when we went? Our family couldn’t get enough of this place!image004NW Trek has lots of baby news, including the recent births of three beaver kits. In addition, the American bison was recently named the national mammal, and Puget Sound area residents can come and see an entire herd of them just a short drive away. No need for a road trip to Yellowstone National Park or Montana! And don’t forget about the new nature inspired play area. You could easily spend an entire day here! image008
