Weekend Scenes: Newport, RI

Happy Monday!  We are moving a little slow today trying to get into the swing of a new week after a fun weekend away.  Derek was in a wedding over the weekend in Newport, RI so Friday morning we left to drop Tatum off at my parents and fly up to Rhode Island.

The flight was so easy and after about a half hour ride, we were checking in at the hotel in Newport by about lunchtime.  We stayed at The Ocean Cliff, where the wedding was also held.  

After a few minutes to get settled we headed to the main strip in Newport for lunch.  We picked The Mooring which was right in the wharf overlooking the water.  We each got a bowl of New England Clam Chowder (which was out of this world!) then split a couple appetizers.  We headed back to the hotel and I had a bit of time to relax while Derek was at the rehearsal - I met him at the bar for a drink then we were headed back downtown for the rehearsal dinner.

The next morning we slept in and lounged then he was busy the rest of the day.  I went to meet some of our close friends at The Wharf Pub - we had the best time and ate so many good items.  We finished off with a cookie from the Cookie Jar next door.

The rest of the day was spent celebrating the wedding!  We had a great time catching up with a lot of friends and celebrating.  Yesterday we had enough time to sleep in before heading back to the airport in Providence.  We grabbed lunch and then it was time to head home and pickup Stella and Tatum!
