Mini-Vacation in a Few Words

The mini vacation was everything we could have hoped for- relaxing, fun, adventurous, beautiful, not too short- not too long- PERFECT. I feel re-inspired and revived. Here's a quick photo-phrase/word recap....

Pre ferry-ride excitement!!

Bird kiss

This requires a slightly longer explanation: YES- he has another huge eye boo-boo- this is getting RIDICULOUS!  Literally 15 minutes into the ferry ride he was walking on the windy deck and took a header into a bench- so awful. Luckily after the brief tears- he was back to his happy self.

Crazy bluffs- 150 steps
(children walking up them all without assistance or a single whine= small Block Island miracle)

Yes- I let my 4 year old walk up and down this crazy rock hill solo- she's  a trooper.

We had a blast!  Can I give one suggestion though?  If you are planning a Block Island adventure- DO NOT go on 4th of July weekend- unless of course you are diggin' a Jersey Shore type experience (we were unaware of it's beach party hot spot status until we set foot on the ferry with a bunch of 20 something's and a keg:)  We still had a great time- the island was plenty big enough that we could avoid the crowds and explore.
