I'm a 36 year old librarian who loves to run, read, do yoga and hang out with my friends and family. I ran the 2008 & 2009 Boston Marathon for Team Eye & Ear to support the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary. Go Team Eye & Ear!

Long Weekend Wrap Up

I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! Nick and I headed down to Rhode Island Thursday evening and met up with my family and our friends at Pizza Place in Westerly. The pizza here is fantastic, but I think the best menu item is the Gorgonzola salad. On Friday morning, my mom, Carolyn, and I headed off to Heart of Avondale for an early morning yoga class, because we're on top of it like that. Then, after a quick lunch, we played 9 holes at a par 3 course. The winner of that outing was definitely Carolyn who played the "oh, I don't really play golf" card and then proceeded to kick our butts. :)
Saturday morning, Nick and I got up at 6:45 in order to make an 8:30 tee time at Beaver River in Richmond, RI. This course is well-maintained, economical & wins for cutest logo ever. July 4th is not only Independence Day, but also my dad's birthday! Nick, David & I got him a pair of shooting glasses from Cabela's.

Here are some other scenes from the 4th

The Flying Horse Carousel in Watch Hill

I enjoy reading, Boston sports & long walks here

Nick & I checked out the local real estate- a little small for our taste

This cake was delicious & patriotic

While driving home from dinner Saturday night, we pulled over on the side of the road to watch the amazing fireworks display put on by the (use your fancy voice) Misquamicut Club. Despite the fact that we weren't inside the grounds hobnobbing with Muffy & Bunny, I doubt their view of the display was any better.

We reluctantly packed our bags and headed home around 9 last night. What a wonderful weekend!

You forgot to comment on the delicious ribs! And I may have won golf but you kicked my butt at yoga! :)

You're right- I wanted to give the impression that we did something more than eat this weekend, haha
