It’s easy to forget sometimes that Providence is just an hours drive away from Boston. It’s so close! And we’d never been. So we decided to take a mini weekend getaway for the 4th/our anniversary. It was SUCH a good weekend, you guys. We did so much. I’m just gonna leave it here in bullet points. If you are ever in Providence, I would recommend every single one of these things! So, we:
» explored Brown University in the rain. What a pretty campus!
» got up close in personal with the State House.
» visited the RISD art museum and got lost for a couple of hours.
» sat along the Providence river, soaking in the sunshine and the city view.
» stumbled upon the cutest cafe, Cable Car, that has a little theater in the back with love-seat couches for seats. We watched A Hard Day’s Night!
» grabbed some to-go pizza’s from Pizza Pi-er, layed a blanket out in the park, and listened to a free concert put on by the Providence Philharmonic Orchestra. And then finished it off with some fireworks, of course!
» visited the Roger Williams Park and the Roger Williams Park Zoo. You guys, we fed giraffes! My life is now complete.
For Memorial Day this past Monday, Boo and I headed to Rhode Island for a fun little adventure day. We started out kayaking in Kingston, and then headed to Newport where we walked along the cliffs edge and explored the town (which obviously included ice cream cones and boat watching). I really loved Newport and all of it’s charm, and hope we can explore it more in depth soon! We’re also thinking about visiting Providence sometime this summer too. Any suggestions?
You didn’t think I’d take a trip to Niagara Falls, and not post any photos of the falls, did you?! It doesn’t matter how many times I see it, or from how many different angles, I can’t help but always take a million pictures.
I realize now that I don’t have any of the American falls posted here. While Boo is more of a fan of the American falls because of all the rocks below, I much prefer the Canadian Horseshoe falls. And well, I had the camera… :).
Ok, so, I had never been to Vegas before. But I love NYC with all the lights and craziness, so I figured - how different could Vegas be? Right? Um, yeah. Personally, I think Vegas is like NYC on steroids. And maybe it was just because we just spent a week out in the quiet desert, but Vegas was a bit overwhelming when we first arrived. So many people. So much going on. But we warmed up to it after a while. We walked the strip, stuffed our faces, tried our hand at some slots (no such luck), had muuuuultiple frozen hot chocolates at Serendipity, and saw a Cirque Du Soleil show. It was actually a lot of fun!
p.s - this is the last of our trip photos. Phew, we made it through!
How was everyone’s Valentines? For us, we had a whole weekend of fun :) After a delicious dinner on Friday, Saturday was spent on a deserted beach before the snow started coming down, and then Sunday we went on a snow shoeing adventure (more on that later). But the beach? The beach in cold weather is always my favorite.
