Newport

April 28, 2013

Guys I’m on a roll. Three posts in one day??! Can you tell I’m avoiding unpacking my bag and doing laundry, or what?

Every year, Newport Ball happens. It’s a super fun weekend for the RCs (required curriculum aka first year students) at HBS in Newport, Rhode Island. Newport is a darling little town right on the coast, and we stayed in a Bed and Breakfast right off the town square. Jordan’s mom, aunt, and grandma (party!!) all came to hang with Cooper for the weekend while we were gone. Aren’t they amazing?

We drove into Newport, got ready for the ball, and headed to the venue where the ball took place. Jordan, Sarah, and their executive team arrived early for a little tour of the place, so I got to ride on their coattails and take pretty pictures of the sunset before everyone else arrived.

Jordan wore his Paw-Paw Ray’s tie clip. Pretty snazzy.

The next morning, we toured one of the Newport Mansions. This was their backyard… whaaaat?! It was pretty unbelievable. Although, I’m not gonna lie… All I could think about was Downton Abbey :)

Saturday night we had a clam bake – horseshoe, washers, bean bag toss (which people call cornhole up here??) and lobster! No clams though… never figured that one out.

It was SUCH a fun weekend – definitely a once in a lifetime kind of trip. I’m so thankful we have family to love on our Coop while we were gone, and send us pictures of him eating ice cream and whatnot :)
