Nate's Birthday Weekend - Part 1

We weren't in town for Nate's actual birthday, but he and our cousin Melanie came to visit Boston for his birthday weekend. We were super excited that they were coming and planned lots of fun trips. Thankfully, the weather cooperated with us. What better way to enjoy New England than by hanging out on the coast?

On Saturday morning, we headed to Newport, Rhode Island. None of us had ever been there, so we knew we were in for a fun trip.
We parked by the beach and headed on the Cliffwalk.
It was a beautiful day...
Us girls, 
trying to look pretty in the wind
Of course I had to take tons of pictures...
 Amit wanted some pictures of the waves...
After enjoying the first part of the Cliffwalk, we headed to lunch at a little pub that Amit found online. The food was so good! We drove around a little, checking out the sites, and then headed downtown to do some shopping. We hit the jackpot in this little antique store, but we couldn't justify spending hundreds on some really cool antique boat parts. It did give Amit some inspiration though, he now wants to decorate our future den with boat stuff.

We couldn't leave without seeing The Breakers, one of the most famous Newport mansions. We didn't go inside, but just enjoyed the outdoors while we walked around.
We have a lot of ocean shots...
Maybe we're meant to live by it one day?
We headed back to Boston, but there wasn't time for much rest. We headed downtown to walk through Quincy Market and the North End. We stopped at several pastry shops and Nate and Mel finished all of their pastries before we even left to find somewhere to eat dinner. We took one group shop that night... Unfortunately, both Nate and Amit had their eyes closed!


  1. That sounds like so much fun! And I love that grey sweater you wore. Super cute.

  2. Thanks!! It was a lot of fun, we'll have to plan a day to visit Newport when you guys aren't too busy studying.
