Finally a sunny day in Rhode Island
The sun came out at last here in Rhode Island. My sister, brother in law and my twin niece and nephew are visiting and the first four days of their visit were rainy -- after almost no rain for a month. We were about out of indoor ideas so we were happy to get out for a day in Newport. We took the new Family audio tour of the Breakers where the tour guide is the house and the focus is on what it would be like to be a kid living there. It was great and my 4 year old niece and nephew actually wore their head phones and listened. Emma was our tour leader and made sure that we all pressed our play buttons at the same time so we would be listening to the same things together. Next we had some lunch and then drove around the Ocean Drive and stopped at Brenton Point to look out to sea and climb around on the rocks -- this was a huge hit and the kids had a great time.
