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

I agree with the Murphy boys. A fun sign prop always leads to some fun photo moments. Enjoy re-exploring our gorgeous city again! There is always something fun and new going on as you well know.
