Bridal Shower Tea Party and Batchelorette in Newport, RI

This weekend I had a wonderful time celebrating with many of the wonderful women who are in my life.  Ruth and Sara (2 of my amazing bridesmaids) coordinated the bridal shower tea party at the Ashford Town Hall.  The food was amazing, the cake was delicious, and the company…well what can I say, I love them all!  Folks traveled from NH, ME, MA and CT.  Thank-you all for coming, I really appreciate you!!  (Group picture to come…from Christine)

In the afternoon we traveled to Newport, RI for Batchelorette festivities.  We went to an italian restaurant (Sara, I can’t remember the name of it…ugg).  Christine and Erin even convinced the wait staff to create a Batchelorette song for me (which they will now use for other parities!).

We we walked around Newport, Mission Impossible style trying to stay dry ducking under awnings due to some random down pours thanks to Hurricane Bill.

On Sunday we went out to Easton Beach to see the waves from the storm in the Atlantic.  Initially we were not able to swim due to red flag warnings of large waves and strong riptides.  Around 1:00 pm they opened part of the beach so we were able to enjoy the waves and weather!
