Rhode Island Weekend


The start to our vacation has been great. Thank goodness for Iced coffee because Marc and I were ready to go bright and early Saturday morning. We headed to Rhode Island around 830am to beat any traffic, and made it there a little before 11am, not bad! Both kids were great in the car.

We spent the day hanging out with Marc’s family. The weather ended up turning out to be great and it never rained so we got to hang outside and play in the pool.

There’s something so relaxing about RI to me. I guess 1. it’s vacation 2. it’s my home away from home so I’m comfortable.


Saturday night we did take out from Trattoria Romana.


I ordered Chicken Fiorentina which was chicken with prosciutto, mozzarella & spinach in a marsala wine. It was delicious!


Sunday Ava got to play with her cousin Natalie practically all day long.


It’s so fun to watch them hang out, Ava definitely learns a lot from her big cousin.

In the afternoon both of Marc’s grandma’s came over and we got to see his Aunt & Uncle whom we LOVE spending time with.

It was a great afternoon and we truly do miss seeing them!


These two made me smile a TON.


Sunday evening Marc’s dad cooked us a wonderful dinner as usual. He is such an amazing cook and it’s practically effortless to him. We had BBQ Pulled pork, Grilled Chicken, Bean Salad, and Tomato & Cucumber salad.


YUM I love summer food.


Monday was a rainy day so we did some shopping.

Once the weather cleared up we went to the park.


I spy a dog on the playground!

It was such a great weekend with our family and now we are back home and ready to spend some days around Greenwich at the beach! I can’t wait :)

How was your weekend?

Have you ever been to Rhode Island?
