Outdoors in Newport

With temps skyrocketing in Boston, we escaped to Newport as quickly as possible Friday morning for the long weekend. We weren't sure how long we'd be able to stay down at the beach, given last week's shenanigans with Sophia being sick and becoming much more aware that she was sharing a room with mom and dad. After some creative curtain hanging, it all worked out.
In the meantime, we tried to be outdoors as much as possible.
Here's a video of Sophia playing on the grass at our favorite park overlooking the Newport Bridge:

It was also our first adventure in the "new" (to us) backpack. We took Sophia for a little hike out at the Norman Bird Sanctuary. It heads out to the place we call "Pride Rock" overlooking 2nd beach.

Ready to Hike:

Snuggle time with Mom on top of the rock:

Loaded back up and ready to roll:

And we also learned that Sophia really CAN sleep anywhere:

  1. Wow. Those are some cute photos. My favorites are Sophia on the blanket and the one of sophia in the backpack with dad - both looking at the camera: precious!
