Calm Before the Storm

This weekend Chris and I had our "Babymoon" getaway in Newport, RI.  It's a very cute beach town, but it can be super crowded in the summer months, so it was good timing to go now.  Still lively, but you can get a table for dinner.  We had one day of sun where we sat outside and had coffee, walked along the cliff walk with mansions on one side and the ocean on the other, and did a lot of window shopping, walking and eating.
Saturday was quite rainy and cold, so we did one mansion tour (we found our summer home, by the way.  It has 30 servant's quarters rooms in case you want to visit...) of a "summer house" that belonged to the Vanderbuilt family.  It was just amazing to think that anyone could live there and have that much money and excess in their life!  After the mansion tour we we grabbed a quick lunch of lobster mac and cheese - YUM!!  Then we headed off to the movies.   We saw "Friends with Kids", which I had heard was pretty good.  I liked it fine, but Chris had to be elbowed for snoring loudly in the theater...Not his favorite film!!
We had a nice dinner out at the Black Pearl and then headed home Sunday morning.  We missed our baby boy!  He had a great time with Meggie and Papa, but we were happy to have him back with us after 48 hours.  : )

11 more weeks to go and baby Cali will be with us.  Hard to believe it, but I think we're as ready as we can be.
