We took advantage of the last nice beach day, the weekend after Labor Day, and drove a couple hours out to lovely Watch Hill, Rhode Island. The weather forecast had a chance of rain but we forged ahead and it ended up being a pretty perfect day. We went with our friends the Giffords, which is always a good time since Mariah and Tyson love each other.
Toddlers with their dads.
Mariah doing what she does best- collecting heavy rocks.
So Taylor Swift has this beautiful white house in Watch Hill, right there overlooking us on the beach. She had a handful of security guards on the property, and one of them kindly let us know that Taylor was not home to come play on the beach.
After beach time, we went and walked around town and grabbed lunch. The kids sat and watched this carousel forever! It is the oldest operating carousel in the country (built in 1867), and made from rocking horses that are even older. It was originally pulled by a horse until electricity took over in 1914. Just some fun facts for you.
They hug each other so much it is so adorable, They are the cutest little friends. We didn't actually let them ride the carousel since the straps weren't too secure and we didn't trust them to not jump off. Maybe next year.
