We bought a house...
Isn't it beautiful?!?
Just kidding...this is one of the many mansions we saw in Newport, RI. Two Saturdays ago our little family took a day trip to Newport, RI. What a precious city! Beautiful, quaint, surrounded by water, fun little shops, amazing mansions.
We woke up early Saturday morning and hit the road.
We did a little research on the way down and figured out the things we wanted to see the most. The 10 Mile Loop, the many mansions, a restaurant our upstairs neighbors recommended, the beach, and a little shopping. Unfortunately with two small children the shopping didn't really happen but we did do everything else we wanted to do. This precious church was in the middle of Thames Street. Really beautiful.
After we walked up and down Thames Street we stopped at the restaurant our neighbors recommended, Brick Alley Pub. They were right, the nachos were delicious.
The boys enjoyed sitting on the same side as their daddy.
We then got back in the car and started the drive of the 10 mile loop. This was during typical nap time so we were hopeful that the boys would fall asleep and they did. That means we did the 10 mile loop 5 times. We will do about anything to get a nap in for our guys.
The mansions were truly incredible. Beautiful estates with gorgeous homes, tons of land, and amazing views.
We then stopped at the beach for the boys to play for a little while. Unfortunately the clouds rolled in and made the temperature drop so we didn't last very long.
We are so thankful that New England has these precious towns so close to Boston that we can explore for the day. It was a great way to spend a Saturday with my family.
