Weekend Wander: Fremont Seattle


This is something Up with which B shall put.

Now that we’re home from our trip around the world with kids, back at school and work, we’re trying to keep the spirit of our travels alive by enjoying our city and state together on the weekends.

This past weekend we took a walk to Fremont, a quirky neighborhood in Seattle. On our way there, almost hidden by the leaves on the Burke-Gilman trail BigB found this Up sign on the ground. The Murphy boys voted and decided that legitimately found meant permission to keep. I wasn’t originally in favor of this decision but it did lead to some fun photo moments…


Detour to Chocolate Bliss

As I shopped for Christmas gifts at Theo’s Chocolate, BigB hammed for the camera. If chocolate, specifically Seattle chocolate is on your Christmas shopping list a visit to Theo’s to check out their selection of gift sets is definitely worthwhile. From $27 to $120, these boxed combinations of chocolate and coffee treats are a chocolate-lover’s dream holiday gift.


Upvote for the TrollTroll

We took an alternate route home just so we could stop by the Fremont Troll because, y’know, when there’s a friendly troll under your nearby bridge, it is worth stopping by to say “hi” every once in a while :)

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!
