Sierra's 1st Trip to Rhode Island

We decided to bring Sierra along on a work & house hunting trip to Rhode Island this past week. This would be her very first airplane ride and her first trip away from home with Mommy and Daddy!Victor had various appointments scheduled to view potential homes for us to live, while I worked! Friday afternoon and all day Saturday I checked out all of Victor's top choices. Sierra was incredibly good the entire trip even though she was mostly trapped in a carseat as Daddy drove all over town.

While visiting Jamestown, we stopped at a wonderful park and played for a while. Sierra was having so much fun running around, walking on bridges, playing in the sand and swinging, she didn't want to leave.

She even met a couple nice little girl friends.

Her favorite activity of all is swinging highter and higher on the swingset!

The house we loved most was in Wickford (North Kingstown) about 15 minutes from my office.

Next door in the churchyard, there was a beautiful garden with lovely flowers everywhere! Sierra was mesmorized by all rainbow of colored blossoms!

A couple of blocks away is the harbor with lots of sailboats...

Along the center of town is Main Street where there are a variety of cute clothing boutiques, a bookstore, an artist studio, an icecream shop and a few restaurants on the water!

Sierra found flowers everywhere!

After enjoying an early dinner at a waterside bistro on Saturday evening, we relaxed, enjoying the breeze and each other! It was the end of our trip and now we have to decide where to live! Wish us luck!

Sierra's 1st Haircut

Sierra's beautiful blonde locks were getting too long for Mommy to give her mini-bang cuts every other week, so we decided to take her to the Beauty Shop. Sierra loved the idea of going to the "beauty shop" & was especially excited because the TCBY was right next door for icecream!

Saturday afternoon we ventured to get her haircut and once we arrived the first thing Sierra noticed was the huge basket of lollipops on the waiting room table! She proceeded to pick up the entire basket and bring it to Mommy! We chose our favorite flavor - Bubble Gum - and also picked up Cherry because they both looked so yummy!

Once in the chair, Sierra decided this wasn't the thing to do. First Daddy's lap, then Mommy's lap, many tears and then finally Daddy's lap again. The only thing that calmed her down was the beautician's water spray bottle! She sat on her Daddy's lap, spraying him with water, giggling and eating her lollipop! It was a good day.

Sierra got a really cute haircut and a fun certificate for her baby album!

Hang In There Audrey!

At a nearby garage sale, we found this interesting contraption - a swing that hangs in a doorway! Audrey loves hanging out in it while we are in the kitchen. She's getting so big and strong. As you can see, at 4 months old, she's got a long and lean body and looks just like Victor! Another Daddy's girl!
