Fall Break, Newport was calling . . .

It was Fall Break around here and in-spite of our lame trip last year, we decided to brave another trip to Newport.  We LOVE Newport.  Honestly, we all are happier people there.

The weather was in the in upper 60s and low 70s but it was sunny, so it was very beach friendly weather.  Three great days spent at the beach.

You can see we are happy to be there.

 Moments like the one below happen in Newport.
 Dentist husband commented on how much better it was to be in the ocean in a wet suit.  So, Toothsome #3 wanted a turn.  
 Another Mom happy Newport moment.  They sat in the sand talking like this for over an hour.
 First time boogie boarding for Toothsome #3
 A trip to Newport is not complete without a trip to the Crab Cooker.  Toothsome #3 loves sharks, so we had to get a picture.
 The combo plate.  So dang yummy.
Toothsome #1 was with us but for some reason, he didn't make it in very many pictures.

I spent the majority of the trip reading "Discovery of Witches" by Deborah Harkness.  It was a great October and beach read.

Also, another great October read, "House at Riverton" by Kate Morton.

Honestly, our trips to Newport are heaven.
