Ideas for family fun this summer!

stockvault-people-wading-in-water131098We are defiantly blessed to live in the Pacific North West. Snohomish County is so diverse, in a short drive we can be on the beach listening to ocean waves or hiking in the foothills of the Cascades. That’s pretty amazing, so let’s get out there and enjoy Gods creation!

• Hiking and a picnic at Lord Hill in Snohomish 12921 150th St Se, Snohomish, WA 98290

• Cool off with some ice-skating at the Everett Xfinity Arena. $6.00 admission and $3.00 skate rental $3.50 5 & under. Check their website for discounted times and rates.

• Take the ferry to Jetty Island and spend the day in the surf and sand! The free ferry runs July 5th – Labor Day. The ferry departs from 10th St. and West Marine View Drive. View more information and the ferry schedule at Reservations are accepted and a good idea!

I know our family is planning to do all three of these adventures, maybe we’ll see you there! There’s nothing like some fresh air and maybe an ice-cream cone on the way home to really feel like summer is finally here.

Don’t forget camp Zion! June 22nd – Aug 14th. There are still spots open! A list of weekly themes and registration info. may be viewed on our website’s home page.

Have a great summer! If you have something you’d like to share with our ZLS family please let us know. We’d love to have some guest writers this summer and for the new school year. Parents, grandparents and association pastors welcome!
