TrollSummer Time!

Hi folks. It’s vacation time, so I’m going to keep it short today.  This summer I am taking my family to Seattle on vacation. I’ve been there more times that I can count, but this time the family will get to see all of the sights for themselves rather than looking at pictures on my Facebook feed. If you ever make it to Seattle go see the troll under the bridge. For real. Check it out.
