The middle of the area seemed to be centered around this church. It was very beautiful in person and the picture does not do it justice. There were pumpkins meticulously littered all over and the trees were still beautiful colors. Idealistic to say the least.
This was maybe the most hilarious thing in the history of the universe. When we are playing sometimes Charlotte pretends to hide by just laying down and burrying her head. Needless to say, when Jim was chasing her she all of the sudden just stopped, jumped, and belly flopped right into the grass to "hide" from him. It was so spontaneous and seriously cracked me up.
It was a very clean town, and who wouldn't be with signs like this.
After peeking through many shops and grabbing a sandwich we drove across the way to catch a closer glimpse of all the sail boats. It was so picturesque.
Charlotte had fun playing on the dock. Although I about had a heart attack that she kept wanting to look at the water. Seriously she has no fear.
After leaving the pier Charlotte fell asleep in the car so we decided to go for a drive. Before we knew it we had landed ourselves on Ocean Drive. Little did we know this would become quite the tradition for us. Ocean Drive is a 10 mile strip that runs along the coastline. The views are breathtaking to say the least. We pulled over the first chance we got.
We each stayed with Charlotte and found our way out on to the rocks. Hearing the waves crash and seeing them roll in was so cool.
It is hard to explain how big the waves were but here is Jim out by them while I was at the car. They were taller than he was.
And the rocks were gigantic. We finally woke Charlotte up to go out and see it all. I am not sure she cared, but we were excited to show her.
She was still a sleepy girl and spent some time cuddling with Dad. I love this picture of the two of them. So sweet.
After we got done and finally came back up we noticed this sign. Uh oh!
This is the toll bridge you take to get over to Newport. It is very cool driving on it even though I know that sounds dumb. Certainly made for quite the view.
We all shared a gigantic sundae...as big as Charlotte's head. Also, some girls in line recognized Charlotte because they had seen us the night before at Fieldstone's. It was quite ironic.
We came back and finished the evening by cuddling and finishing Toy Story 3. Wonderful day!
