Goombay Smash and A Bee Sting

During Daddy's week off from work, we left Emily home with Grandma and Granddad in Tiverton and ventured off to Block Island. What a day we had! We took the 2 hour ferry ride from Newport and quicky hopped on a moped to cruise around the island and see the sights.

Touring Block Island

We drove around a bit, grabbed lunch at Ballard's on the beach (YUM!) and continued touring around. We found Mohegan Bluffs and some other unbelievable spots! We hiked up and down up some twisty paths to some beautiful beaches. And I just loved hopping on the back of the moped again to cool off! The air was spectacular and the views amazing!


I'm Thirsty!

We hit The Oar for some drinks. We sat on some awesome chairs on the grass overlooking the marina. I had my first pina colada of the season and Chris had his usual, Goslings and Diet Coke. On the way back into town, I got stung by a bee on my leg while riding on the back of the moped! OUCH! So we had to stop for another drink and ice my injury on the deck of the Harborside Hotel. This time I had a gin and tonic, another first of the season!


Where Are We?

It truly is a mini Bermuda!


Do We Have to Leave?

Yes, we returned home to see our Emily. We bought her a very cute Block Island sweatshirt from Rags. I would rate our day away as a perfect 10! We hadn't left her all summer and we were adventurous! The quote of the day was, "We couldn't do this with Emily!" Ahhh, we did miss her!

Emily's First Haircut

Emily got her first haircut at Snip-Its on Thursday, August 2nd. She was a bit nervous at first, but recovered quickly. In the end, they put her hair up in a pretty little bow, but it was still in her eyes when we took it out! So Mommy had to cut some herself after all that! But she looks like such a big girl now! And she's talking up a blue streak and even using sentences! One of her favorites is, "Emily do it!"


Tubbin' it with Tommy

Auntie Kathy came over with the boys last week and Tommy and I ended up in the bath together! Daddy blew us some awesome bubbles and lathered us up and did a great job! It was fun taking a bath with my cousin! We love to splash!


Summer Lovin'

Well, it's been awhile since we've updated the blog. Gahhh! So Emily has been walking for just about 5 mos. now and she is growing like a weed. She weighs 28 pounds and announces it when she steps on Grandmas's scale! We've been going down to Tiverton, RI to Grandma and Granddad's new house a lot this summer. We found Gooseberry Beach in Newport, and Emily has a blast there. Tiverton is a great hub for summer fun in Rhode Island. We have done Newport and the beaches and Daddy gets to go to a lot of sailing regattas with Granddad. We can't wait until Daddy's week off from work in August. We'll try to check out Block Island, Sakonnet Vineyards, eat some more Gray's Ice Cream and have another yummy meal at the Boathouse. WHAT FUN!
