Step one to having the best weekend of the summer so far? Having absolutely no work for two full days. Saturday and Sunday were completely mine and I spent it with some of my favorite people, who are so special that I'm going to introduce them to you.
Saturday I woke up early to spend the day with Christine, one of my best friends. We've known each other since we were six years old and always have a good time. We drove down to Narragansett and beached it all morning and afternoon. (Yes, "to beach" is a verb, all the cool kids are using it, duh.) Lying in the sun and eavesdropping on fellow beach goers is one of our pastimes of choice, and the conversations we overhear never disappoint.
After the beach, I stopped by the pool club to visit some coworkers since work is always better when you're not actually required to be there. And to round off the day, I vegged on the couch and watched "You've Got Mail" with my mother and Laura, Christine's twin sister and also one of my biffles. Meg Ryan movies are cheesy as a fondue restaurant (baha I'm a dork) but I watch them whenever they're on TV.
Today, err I guess yesterday since it's technically Monday now, I slept in then spent the afternoon beating my boyfriend Corey at cards and annoying him by taking lots of pictures. I hadn't used my camera in a while so I was a bit snap happy. I was able to catch him mid laugh, high five for me.
The best part of my weekend? Going to the Inn at Castle Hill in Newport with my entire family to celebrate my grandparents' 50th wedding anniversary. I assumed the role of unofficial photographer was pretty successful in sneaking some great shots, if I do say so myself. I'm planning on putting up an album on snapfish or some other photo site, but for now here's a sampling.
This is the first time I've ever felt like I looked like anyone in my family. I see a great resemblance to my grandmother this photo.
And here they are, 50 laughter-filled years later.
The Kavanaugh clan.
And one last picture, this one of my mother who is too adorable to not include.
Overall, the best 48 hours I can remember experiencing in a while. Spending time with people I love and having gorgeous, sunny weather for the first time all summer? Absolute perfection.
