Rhode Island Recap Part 1

My trip to Rhode Island was so much fun. Bringing along two friends was a blast, and I loved spending a week in my favorite place on earth. I was in Rhode Island for 8 days, and each day was so much fun. Like I said, I had a 12 day streak of eating ice cream and trying out new shops and flavors was one of the best parts about the vacation. The bad news, almost every good picture I took wound up on Instagram, so today I will be sharing a lot from my feed. The good news, there are a few surprises in here! 


I drove from NYC to Rhode Island Friday afternoon, so I stayed with my grandma at her house in Providence on Friday night. We went to get ice cream and the banana with sprinkles was amazing!


Everything about Rhode Island is cute. It's so quintessential New England, so going on a walk with my grandma on Saturday morning was so beautiful and scenic! Just walking down the street and having a view like this is a real seller in my book.


By Saturday afternoon I had arrived at my house and we had our traditional classic Acciardo family clambake on Saturday night. Lobsters are kind of my obsession and they're my favorite food so of course I wore my lobster tee to be twinning with the love of my life (ha, kidding).


My dad and I were fooling around with the lobsters before we threw them in the pot.


The weather on Sunday was perfect, so my friends and I went to the beach for the whole afternoon. Fun fact: I love boogie boarding and the waves in Rhode Island are wonderful. Jumping and riding the waves is probably one my favorite things to do during the summer.


This house down the street from mine was so beautiful I couldn't not take a picture of it. It's everything you imagine a New England house would be! I was actually on a run when I took this picture (I didn't work out at all for two weeks besides this one run... pray for me) so I probably looked like a fool stopping in the middle of the street and taking pictures of a house.


Lunch at the Black Pearl on Monday was so delicious on Monday. This is a snap of what downtown Bannister's Wharf looks like!


We snapped this picture before heading out of downtown Newport on Monday.

Have you gone on any fun vacations this summer? Stay tuned for part 2 tomorrow!
