Unless you have a specific destination in mind in western BC, let me suggest you turn northeast at Bellingham on WA537 (Guild Mountain Rd.) through Lynden (cute Dutch town) and cross the border into Aldergrove. The border crossing is used minimally, and never busy during the summer. You can encounter major traffic backups at Blaine, especially during the busier summer months.
We use this route even when we head to Vancouver Island, via Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal.

We prefer I-405 at all times of the year, just to avoid the almost constant busy traffic through downtown Seattle.
Have a wonderful vacation.
