Goodbye summer vacations and hellooo pumpkin spice everything. If you've been in Seattle for a while, you know that September can actually be one of the best months of the year for warm days and cool evenings.

The Junction has some ideas how to start your September off on the right foot for everyone. Parents though can be especially exhausted after a few weeks of morning routines (are we right?). Here's a round-up of events to give you a little bit of grown-up time.
