It’s late spring and that means wildflower season has begun. The season is widely regarded as running from March until August so you can expect to see blooms popping up now across the state. Take mom on an adventure and see some blooms!

Did you know that Seattle has a service that allows you to rent boats kind of like Airbnb? If the mom in your life has been wanting to hit the water, consider renting a boat to drive yourself or charter. Seems like a perfectly PNW way to spend Mother’s Day in Seattle doesn’t it?
