Back in 2007, we were looking for a good list of things to do with our kids that wouldn’t require crossing the bridge into Seattle.   Don’t get us wrong, we love Seattle, but the time it takes to get into Seattle without hitting rush hour on the bridge can be more trouble than it is worth.  So when we couldn’t find a good website with ideas, we decided to make a good website ourselves.  We named it Ruby Slipper Guide to the Eastside because the Emerald City is nice, but there is no place like home.   (Get it?  Seattle is the Emerald City?  Oh, you did get it?  Ok, good.)

So this is our list.  We are pretty proud of it and really hope you like it and it is useful.  If you have any ideas, we love to hear them, so drop us a line.  And above all, have fun!
