Mom's Night Out Update

Tickets for our Summer Travel Event at the Woodmark Hotel, Yacht Club and Spa in Kirkland are selling fast, and I wanted to give a quick update on what's going to be happening at the event.

Trio Vintners, a local, family owned winery will be providing plenty of wine for all of us to enjoy during the event, and I'm really excited to sample these wines along with you!

Trophy Cupcakes is baking fresh cupcakes for our event! If you haven't had a chance to try Trophy yet, you'll be delighted. Trophy was just voted Seattle's best cupcake shop in Seattle Magazine's Reader Poll, and the cupcakes are not only delicious, but oh-so-pretty.

Door Prizes
Here are a few of the great door prizes we'll be giving away:

  • One lucky attendee will receive an Escape to the Lake package at the Woodmark Hotel which includes an overnight stay and breakfast for two.
  • The Woodmark is also offering a drawing for a $100 Spa credit at the new NW Face Spa at the Woodmark opening in July.
  • One lucky attendee will win a gift card for a Dozen Trophy Cupcakes

Gift Bags
Our gift bags are filling up fast, and while I'm not quite ready to divulge a complete list of what's inside, I will tell you that it will all be packed in a cute roll-up Tote from Lands' End. We have a nice mix of gifts inside from ranging from local companies like BabyLegs to Malie Kai Chocolates bars from The Islands of Hawaii (did you know that Hawaii is the only state in the U.S that grows chocolatei?)

Plus, myself and fellow traveling mamas Michelle Duffy, of Wandermom, Anne Taylor Hartzell of HipTravelMama and Lora Shinn of CascadiaKids will be answering questions and providing inspiration for your family vacations this summer!

    The lazy days of summer are here now that Memorial Day has signaled the start of the season. This means you have months to plan exciting getaways and trips out of the country until Labor Day. Whether a water park, spa excursion or a camping trip is your forte, there are necessary steps to take in planning the perfect summer vacation.
