Just Another Amazing Autumn at Remlinger Farms, Rain or Shine

This is something of an autumn tradition around our house. We’ve been doing it for years and years, and each year it’s a little bit different, but always just as awesome. This is Remlinger Farms in Carnation, Washington.

We always go opening day. The crowds are light, but it’s just how we kick off our Halloween season. This year, for the first time in 7 or 8 years, the weather did not cooperate. When it’s raining in Seattle, it’s often sunny in Carnation, but his year we just got soaked. Continue reading Just Another Amazing Autumn at Remlinger Farms, Rain or Shine

$2 Gateway Theater in Federal Way is Awesome

Remember dollar theaters? Remember how that used to be a thing, but they’re all basically gone now? Well apparently not, because Federal Gateway Movies 8 is still doing it, and at just $2 smackers a head.

No matinees, no discounts for old or young, just a flat $2. Are you alive and going in? Then it’s $2 please. Continue reading $2 Gateway Theater in Federal Way is Awesome

Red Robin in Boise, Idaho just, Well, Familiar

We try to emphasize the little guys whenever we can, but Red Robin is just such a favorite of ours, it deserves a shout-out even when we’re on the road.

There is no shortage on Robin’s Red in the greater Boise area, but we went to the first location. The Park Center location.

They have a massive patio looking out over the lake, and of the four valley locations, it’s the only one that isn’t nestled within another location, like a mall or what not. This place survives because it’s awesome. Continue reading Red Robin in Boise, Idaho just, Well, Familiar

Would You Buy This Sickly Child Even Just a Meal?

When summer came, the boys were due for haircuts. We let each of them choose what they wanted. Some choose more liberally than others. So I ask you, would you buy this bald kid a meal?

His oldest brother has no hair whatsoever, not even eyebrows or eyelashes, so maybe that played into it. Dominic chose for the summer to shear his head bald, and we let him. Continue reading Would You Buy This Sickly Child Even Just a Meal?

Zoo Boise: Medium Big and Just Wow!

We’d circled the property on a tour bus the day before we went in, and we weren’t impressed. Surely such a small place couldn’t be awesome, but we were wrong, wrong, wrong.

It may look small from the outside, but from inside, it’s awfully big. There are hills, ponds and plenty of room for everything short of rhinos. Continue reading Zoo Boise: Medium Big and Just Wow!

McCall Idaho’s Safety Flag Program Benefits Everyone

The town of McCall Idaho has wide streets and plenty of pedestrians, so they had to come up with a clever solution to keep the walkers safe, and they did just that.

You can’t begrudge roads for being too wide. They want room for cars to run in both directions, plus room for parking on both sides. That makes for a pretty wide road, so how do you keep the pedestrians safe? Continue reading McCall Idaho’s Safety Flag Program Benefits Everyone

Okay, Best Mini Golf We’ve EVER seen

Bear in mind, we’ve only seen about a dozen courses from Seattle to Puerto Rico, and we can say with confidence, these are easily the most awesome greens we’ve ever played.

Putting together an awesome 18-hole course is pretty darn tricky, but Wahooz did it… twice. Continue reading Okay, Best Mini Golf We’ve EVER seen

Clubhouse Grill at Wahooz is Pretty Awesome

We’re always skeptical of food features offered alongside attractions, but we decided to give the diner in the heart of Wahooz a shot, and we were blown away.

Sure, nachos are over $5 bucks, but am I getting some simple chips? Nope, we got a platter of smothered goodness we could barely chew through as a group. Continue reading Clubhouse Grill at Wahooz is Pretty Awesome

Looking For An Extra Day of Fun in N. Idaho?

Northern Idaho has a pretty awesome amusement park called Silverwood, which is very convenient from the I-90 corridor, but if you’re already there, you can easily add another day of fun at Triple Play just down the road. Continue reading Looking For An Extra Day of Fun in N. Idaho?

Best Bowling in Boise, Hands Down… It’s Pinz

My biggest gripe with bowling alleys is the whole League thing. Seems like every time I want to bowl, there they are just hogging the entire place. Not so at Wahooz.

There are no leagues, so lanes are open pretty much all the time, and they offer a full bar and meal menu to boot, so there’s that. Continue reading Best Bowling in Boise, Hands Down… It’s Pinz
