If we can believe the forecast, there just might be some snow on the ground mid-week so who knows what conditions will be like this weekend. But here’s hoping that if the white stuff falls, it will melt, since we have plenty of fun things to do, see and hear. Consider: Dancing dogs, postcard making, storytime, game night, a mid-day musical jam and a meet and greet with some slithery reptiles. Plus don’t forget this Thursday is National Rubber Ducky Day and you can celebrate at The Children’s Museum, Seattle, where there will be a Ride the Ducks parade plus ducky races and quack-filled music and story time.
