FC: Jamestown, Rhode Island Summer 2011
1: This is our annual vacation in Jamestown. We had a lot of fun this year! We started our vacation celebrating Zoe's birthday with Nonni & Papa. We finally went on a ferry ride. Aidan went sea fishing. Zoe went horseback ridding. We celebrated the Fourth of July and spent lots of time relaxing at the beach of course! A great time was had by all! | Summer Vacation with Nonni & Papa
2: Zoe turned 7 this year! For her birthday, Nonni and Papa gave her a new Buildabear Kitty to add to her collection. This one came with a hula skirt and coconut bra and a bridle dress to boot! Zoe absolutely loved it! Can you tell?!?!
3: Papa and Zoe tuckered out after an evening of celebrating!
4: was spent building sand castles, boogie boarding, digging for quahogs, and searching for beach treasures for the 1st Annual Mackeral Cove Scavenger Hunt! | First day at the beach
6: We spent the whole day at the beach in anticipation of the fireworks to come later. Aidan was very excited by the tons of people who stopped to look at his sand creation. Zoe was excited about decking herself out for the festivities. The Rocket Hogs put on an amazing show as always!
8: The next couple of days... | Jeff taught Aidan to play chess and Aidan taught Zoe. Our friends, the Rovezzis, came up for a night and we hung out at the beach as much as possible. | Jeff taught Aidan to play chess and Aidan taught Zoe.

12: Zoe loves the water and goes straight in as soon as we get to the beach. She will happily spend all day in the water boogie boarding. We call her our little surfer girl!
13: Aidan likes to spend most of his time building sand castles. This time he was adamant about learning to boogie board. Once he learned, we couldn't get him out of the water either!
14: Aidan & Zoe boogie boarding at Mackerel Cove Beach We had some really great waves on this day!
15: Zoe and Aidan made some friends at the beach. They had such a blast trying to hide out from the waves that day!
16: Our vacation wouldn't be complete without a trip to the arcade in Newport!
18: After years of watching the ferry go by, Nonni & Papa treated us to a ride! Half way into the Lighthouse Tour, we were caught up in a sea of fog! We did still get to see a lot. It was quite the adventure!
21: Surprise Zoe! Nonni gave Zoe a horseback riding lesson at Goddard Park. Zoe was ecstatic! And due to a little mix-up, Zoe rode 3 different horses in one lesson! The white one, Easter, was her favorite.
22: Surprise Aidan! Papa arranged for Aidan and Jeff to go out fishing with his neighbor, Gary, on Gary's boat. Aidan was in his glory. They caught 4 fish that morning. They brought one home to eat. It was a Sea Bass. Gary was kind enough to trim it up. Then Nonni and Papa cooked it. Needless to say, Aidan did not try the fish...but he was very proud of himself for catching it with the boys!
30: We spent this vacation... celebrating a birthday, playing at the beach, boogie boarding, building sand castles, eating ice cream, playing at the arcade, shopping, flying kites at Beavertail, relaxing, watching the bunnies in Nonni & Papa's yard, making smores over the fire pit...
31: walking the Jamestown piers, finding a boat named 'Zoe', eating lobster, hanging with family and friends, watching the boats sail under the bridge, horseback riding, sea fishing, riding the fast ferry, walking along the ocean, searching for shells, skipping rocks, finding crabs, playing games...Now that's a vacation!
32: Somehow we managed to leave with as much stuff as we arrived with...I'm never quite sure how we fit it all in there. Nonni and Papa can't seem to figure it out either!
33: Thanks Nonni & Papa for another wonderful vacation in Jamestown!
