We started our trip out with a visit to the Fremont Troll. Sadly, I can say that not a single person in our family has visited this local attraction. Seemed fair enough it was time for a visit.
This huge thing was created in 1990. He resides under the Aurora bridge.
In his hand is a VW Beetle!

After visiting our new friend, the Troll, we headed over to the Theo Chocolate Factory for a tour. I've had this on my to-do list for years and was really excited to finally get a chance to visit this local piece of heaven.
Hair-nets and all!!!
Walking through these doors....the smell! Oh, the fabulous smell of chocolate!!
We learned so much about the process of chocolate and tasted a lot of chocolate, too! It was an hour long and the kids did great. They loved the sampling portion, as well.
We finished off our Fremont adventure with a trip to Gasworks Park. I have some fuzzy memories of a long walk home from Gasworks Park to a friends house in Ballard one fourth of July back in my college days. Kenny thinks we swung by there once many moons ago, but the kids have only seen this other well know Seattle destination from the water when we took a tour on a Duck.
Adalyn was nearing her end of adventure rope.
Adventured out Adalyn couldn't make it into this picture.
Overall, we had a great afternoon in the city, in the dead of winter, exploring some great sites and filling our bellies full of chocolate. We didn't even get a drop of rain on us!
