We took the family down to Newport for a quick vacation. We had so much fun! We stayed at the Marriott right near the water and it was very easy to walk everywhere. We ate lunch at one of our favorite restaurants and Brookie discovered that she likes lobster...uh oh! We took a harbor cruise and learned about many things like Dwight D. Eisenhower's summer house and the little sailboats that kids learn to sail in. When we got off the boat, it was pouring! We had to run back to the hotel, but luckily, they had an indoor pool:) After about 2 hours of swimming, we ventured out in the rain to find a place for dinner. We wound up at the Baking Crab where we had some great lobster mac-n-cheese. The kids watched the olympics in our room until they crashed:) The next morning, we packed our beach bags and headed to second beach. We found a great spot and settled in with our umbrella and snacks. The sand was very smooth and the water was pretty warm for around here. The kids had a blast running in the crash the waves and even got dad to take them out farther:) The weather was beautiful and the day was so relaxing! When we got back to the room, the kids wanted to go swimming again! We talked them into dinner first and walked around a bit as well. As soon as we got back, the swimming started again:) The last day, we had breakfast and decided to go for a walk. We found a little arcade and got some tokens. The kids had a blast playing air hockey, spin the giant wheel and skee ball. When we were done, we had enough tickets to bring home a blow up spider man:) I love summer!
