Seeking sunshine

Even though we had an amazing bonus summer this fall, somehow sunny picnics in the park and kiddie-pool splashing are already distant memories. Our rain boots are getting soggy, and it may be a long time before we see a clear blue sky. With this being our reality for many rainy months to come, you might consider booking a healthy dose of vitamin D for your fam. 

How to do that? Luckily, sunny desert climes are just a short nonstop flight away from Seattle. Gather your crew, grab your sunglasses and visit one of these warm winter vacation spots. They’re perfect for Pacific Northwest families. Send us a postcard!
