In case you missed it: 5 takeaways from Pine & 14th Family Day


If you didn't make it out to the Pine & 14th Family Day today on Capitol Hill please know you were missed. But don't worry. We ate extra astrologically themed cookies from Dianne's Delights on your behalf and penned a short recap of 5 things you need to know about the party. 

#1- Photo fans (myself included) got a chance to nerd-out on Polaroid cameras and film in the Impossible Project's Silver Shade Airstream parked outside Rare Medium as part of their nationwide tour. In 2008 The Impossible Project saved the last Polaroid production plan in the Netherlands and started to invent and produce new instant film for old Polaroid cameras. They even make hardware including the Impossible Instant Lab while lets you transform digital images on your iPhone into Polaroids. Insider tip: Get your own Impossible Instant Lab at Rare Medium on Capitol Hill.



#2- Bootyland Kids is a great place to shop for toys and clothing for kids. Since 1995 this Capitol Hill boutique has been the go-to place for eco-conscious moms who are looking for organic apparel for babies and kids (up to youth size 12), toys, all-natural beauty products and even amber teething necklaces. Insider shopping tip: This is a great place to shop locally for Seattle-based Kate Quinn Organics.



#3- Representing one half of The AstroTwins, local author and celebrity astrologer Tali Edut lives here in Seattle on Capitol Hill. The Pine & 14th Family Day event marked the local launch of Momstrology, the fourth book she's written with her twin sister Ophira. This is an incredibly insightful and easy to read parenting guide that can be used to decode kid behavior based on birth date. Insider tip: There's a reason this book is a best seller on Amazon. Not only does it make a great gift for moms (hello summer baby showers!), it's a priceless guide for anyone who is interested in understanding more about their own astrological sign.  This book is also available locally at the Pacific Place Barnes & Noble.



#4- Well the good news is, should you ever find yourself in an emergency situation on Capitol Hill you are in good hands. The friendly team at Seattle Fire Station #25 on Pine street had a great time showing kids around the station and letting them take pictures on the trucks. Look closely in this pic and you can see the disco ball that hangs from the ceiling above one of the trucks. The disco ball was apparently rescued from a night club that was being shut down on the hill. #onlyoncapitolhill


#5- Last but not least, the Pine & 14th Family Day event would not have been possible without help from our sponsors including Seattle Metropolitan magazine, Dianne's Delights, Nuflours, and Talking Rain. We also want to give a big thank you to everyone who helped us spread the word about this community event including The Capitol Hill Blog, SkinnyPurse, Fresh Jess, Style Logical, An Emerald City Life and BellingFAM.
