A Day Trip to Snohomish, WA

 

The perfect dessert for Memorial Day! A Piescream with ice cream and a slice of Strawberry Rhubarb pie from Snohomish Pie Co.    


I've really been getting into exploring the beautiful state of Washington where I've been living for twenty one years. This state has so much to offer beyond just Seattle. I have seen so much of the state and I still have a lot more to go see. One place I'd never been until yesterday is Snohomish. This town is located 29 miles northeast of Seattle. I was happily surprised when we entered the main street area of town. It's a picture perfect American town where visitors and locals alike strolled down the street, supporting the local shops and restaurants. It was Memorial Day, so flags were blowing in the breeze, as we remembered the fallen soldiers. 

Our first stop was Snohomish Pie Co. There was a short line outside because of the holiday. This is a really popular spot and their pies and cinnamon rolls sell out fast. My sons each enjoyed a Snickerdoodle cookie while I ordered one of their fun Piescreams to share with my husband. I love Strawberry Rhubarb Pie, so I chose that to go in the cup with the vanilla ice cream. It also came with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles. The presentation was so pretty and unique. I dug in and gave my Piescream a try. It was delicious, of course! But it was really filling and we couldn't eat it all. 

The yummy fresh pie was mostly on the bottom, so there was a lot of whipped cream and ice cream to dig through first. The pie tasted awesome and fruity, and everything a fruit pie should taste like. I really like this flavor of pie because of how the strawberries and rhubarb taste together! A little sweet and a little sour, but mostly sweet. To me, this pie tastes like summer. 

After enjoying our afternoon dessert, we headed to a couple of parks. The first park we checked out was right on the river and the views were really nice. The day was also perfect with the weather being in the high 70's. This park is called Kla Ha Ya Park and has a riverfront trail along the Pilchuck River. Then we went to another nearby playground where our boys played in the sun for an hour. 

After playing, we went to an early dinner at Andy's Fish House. This casual restaurant has both indoor and outdoor seating. They serve local and fresh seafood. They don't serve liquor, just beer and wine, so I chose a Pineapple Cider. I had some Chicken Strips and fries and my husband had the Cod PO' Boy. My son also had some Chicken Strips and my other son had a Grilled Cheese off the kid's menu. Everything was really tasty and the service was fast and friendly. 

After eating, we walked back to our car, checking out and photographing more of the neat architecture of Snohomish. All in all, this was a really fun day and we loved checking out the town! I would recommend coming here if you've never been and you want to get away from the city for a little while.
