A Day At The Beach

Although the weather forecast called for rain this afternoon, we took a chance and headed for the beach. The rain never came and we all had fun in Watch Hill, RI. Shannon got her Dell's lemonade and clam fritters. The kids had ice cream cones, rode on the flying horse carousel and played on the beach. And I got to enjoy the smiles on everyone's faces. :)

Heublein Tower Hike

Today we took the kids on a hike in the Talcott Mountain State Park up to the Heublein Tower. The kids managed to hike the 2.5 mile round trip plus the 120 steps to the top of the tower. Well, I had to carry Ciara a little bit when she got tired and said her legs had "too much exercise in them." :)

A little picnic at the top
