What’s Happening In The Seattle Area This Weekend? | May 6

Hey, there Seattle!

Mother’s Day is coming up!  Please remember to call, write and text your Mom so she knows how much you care! 

Don’t have a mom?  It’s the perfect opportunity to visit a few at a local senior center or adopt a neighbor nearby whose kids are far away.

If you’re looking for something fun to do with your Mom this weekend, take her out to Wenatchee for an exciting new hike or try the Mother’s Day 5K in Kirkland!

When all else fails, pick up some flowers for her at the Lake Forest Park Farmer’s Market and deliver them in person!

Emily – Your Fun Real Estate Mom!
