2.i will pick the winners for last week's giveaway sometime in the next day or two. make sure to enter!
i want to share my favorite part of newport with you...ocean drive/10 mile drive.
the homes are amazing and the view is jaw dropping. what's not to love?
this was our second time to visit. the first time was pretty cool, there were some massive storm clouds rolling in. check out h's face and those muddy legs. bahahaha!
this time it was overcast again but we still really wanted to visit.
check out the shacks we saw on the way to the beach. okay, but seriously...the amount of money in newport is mind blowing.
note to self...invest in windbreakers STAT. holy windy.
a half family portrait. :)
lucy is on the left and cate is on the right. i love the tiny piggies. :)
the babies look angry and harper looks scared?!?!?
j took cate out to see the water. do you see all of those sailboats on the horizon? so beautiful.
the big girls brought ziplocs so they could explore and collect treasures. they found lots of shells and seaweed and snails.
the babies LOVED being there. they were so interested in everything. so curious.
we picked up rocks and watched the crabs scurry into the water. the girls were fascinated. i was a little bit creeped out. i don't like things that scurry. shudder.
when i was bending over looking at one, jimmy goosed me and i swear to all that is holy that i have NEVER screamed that loud. i almost peed my pants. it goes without saying that he thought this was highly entertaining.
and as we were leaving, we saw this. seriously? i don't even know what to say.
all i could think of was gob bluth going to the banana stand. please tell me that someone gets this reference?!?!?
we also went apple picking! i'll share pictures soon.
happy monday y'all!
