May is starting off lovely here in the Pacific Northwest, isn't it? There's sun in the forecast as far as the eye can see.
All this warmer weather means we are going to start seeing more animals, insects, and other creatures that either hatch or come out of hibernation in the spring. It also means we'll be transitioning into butterfly season soon.
There's a lot to be excited about this time of year, so make some space to get outside before this season ends.

Now let's talk about what to explore with Kids this May!
There are few things more exciting about Spring than the return of bright colors. The pops of yellow, pink, white, and lavender are all inviting signs of warmer days ahead.

Spring Wildflower season can go by quickly in the Pacific Northwest....especially if you are a parent!
It can be hard to keep track of what's blooming when you're also managing extracurricular activities, end-of-the-year school events, and spring holidays.
Maybe you’ve already got this wildflower thing down. But chances are you have you have a vague sense of when things look really pretty, but you aren’t sure what you are supposed to be looking at or which weekend to reserve to go explore.
In this post, we are here to help you out on two of the most iconic PNW spring wildflowers - Trilliums and Camas Lilies.
