What’s Happening In The Seattle Area This Weekend? | April 8th

Hey there Seattle!,

Today is my dad’s birthday!  What are you doing for fun birthdays these days…? 

We are going to have a little family dinner together tomorrow – and I’m hoping my sister makes her famous lemon and blueberry cake!  He and Mom did go out for lunch at Scott’s Bar and Grill (Across from the Shoreline Costco, which is one of our favorite sit-down burger restaurants.

I’m just hoping it stays sunny and maybe I’ll get some time out in the garden this weekend.

How about you?  Any plans? 

If not… read below! 🙂
