Dawg Dash '19

Oct. 13th, 2019

We did it! And Kona joined too!!! Running is a great exercise and it's even more fun when we can do it with our dog. 

It's an annual event that Team AYAO has been partipating. We look forward to next year and many years after that!

Allstate Hot Chocolate Run '19

March 2nd, 2019

We had an awesome weekend at the Allstate Hot Chocolate Expo and 5K! The weather was gorgeous with sunny sky, though a bit breezy. It was all worth it when we got our finisher mugs filled with...HOT CHOCOLATE!!!

Till next year~

Mission Ridge

February 2nd, 2019 

I have been an avid snowboarder since my college days. It is a challenging sport and sometimes painful (always wear a helmet!). Mission Ridge is my favorite ski resort in the Northwest. I really enjoy the dry powder, long runs, and just great people all over. Best of all, there is never any line! Shh...don't tell anyone =). 

When Huskies are not playing on Saturday, you can always find me on Mission Ridge!

We Enjoy What We Do

We are here to help our customers, wether it's in person, over the phone, or through emails.

More importantly, we look after one another and work together as a team. Whether it's after a hardworking day or a nice sunny day on the weekend, you can find three of us hanging out around town and enjoying a glass wine, maybe two.
