Pikes Place Market
We dropped our bags off and then headed straight to Pikes Place Market to grab some lunch. It was a fun market atmosphere with fresh seafood, beautiful (and cheap!) flowers, fresh produce that made me want to buy it all, pastries, and other fun shops.
The Freemont Troll
My good friends, the Gibbs family, now live in Seattle, so Jen was kind enough to pick us up and take us around for the afternoon. Her children were so cute with Blake and it was fun to get out and see a few things we wouldn't normally have been able to do without a car.
The Freemont Troll was one of them. Kind of random, but supposedly it is one of those touristy things to see and since the Gibbs had never seen it either, we took a detour. It is a giant troll sculpture under a bridge in Freemont, in case you couldn't tell from the photos. :)
Green Lake Park
Our final stop with the Gibbs was Green Lake. It was refreshing. I wish we could have had more time there! We played in the water and sand for a while and then let all the children play around on the playground. They dropped us off at the Space Needle, but I'll save that and the rest of Seattle for the next post.
