Long President's day weekend....lazy President's day. We somehow have managed to stay home all day watching YouTube videos and eating cold Chick-fil-A.
Saturday we explored The Orange Circle after a breakfast at The Galley in Newport. Eggs and hot dogs at the counter, with multiple diner coffee refills and perfectly placed Girl Scout Cookies above the ice cream resulting in a purchase of Peanut Butter Patties (or Tagalongs if you grew up in the 80's).
At the circle, we wandered up and down, strolling into all the antiques malls; Nate pointing out his favorites and me remembering that he's actually more eccentric than I am. We also repeatedly commented on how we need to do Date Night at The Circle - the amount of new gastro-pubs and cool places to get some food and a cocktail is incredible. I also fell in love with Tiddlywinks, the toy store, and vowed that I would never go anywhere else but there for a present ever again.
I really hope I can keep good on that promise - because the store is INSANE.
Late lunch at Watson's Drugstore, which is completely remodeled, and although cool, I missed the original and understated counter on the side of a working pharmacy.
Made it home in time for Nate to watch motocross and walk across the cul-de-sac with a sleeping Captain to transport him on the Haack's house while we hung late and ate an amazing home cooked dinner.
Nate went riding on Sunday, which was supposed to be the inaugural family game night...but growing pains and a slight fever had Captain passed out by 7pm. So Nate and I ordered BBQ and watched American Made instead.
