we set off to RI bright & early last Sunday.
our destination: The Roger Williams Zoo (because fathers got in free)
a pit stop was made in order to eat breakfast & change diapers:
classy McD's. ridin' dirty. alex.
alex also consumed way too much water & promptly pee all over herself & her father.
this led to the rinsing of clothing & the use of the bathroom hand dryer in an attempt to make things wearable.
when that failed- operation "dry RuffleButts on the car's dashboard" commenced:
it didn't work as quickly as i hoped it would
despite an awesome double stroller, purchased specifically for her & her sister, alex refused to sit & demanded to walk or be held then entire time.
she did show some mild interest in the animals- but not nearly as much as the husband was hoping for.
alex's favorite. zebra. flamingo.
but all i all- we had a great time.
and this sign made me lol:
we wrapped up our time at the zoo & set off for something i had been looking forward to for days:
that's right- Rita's.
we don't have any up in our area- and i haven't had a Rita's in YEARS so i almost lost my mind.
Rita's 4 life!
gah. as good as i remember.
me: Gelati with a layer of vanilla frozen custard- Cranberry italian ice- vanilla frozen custard
the husband: Gelati with a layer of vanilla frozen custard- Pear italian ice- vanilla frozen custard
and the best part? the girls were totally unknowing the backseat- so i didn't have to share.
short & sweet. have a great weekend!
