Saturday afternoon we added up an equation:
Sun + Sand + Salt + Family + Food

It was a successful sum, but I'm pretty sure you can't go wrong with a family beach trip to Newport.

We then decided to add a boat,
some dried mango,
more sun,
& Newport harbor.

It was a great idea, and we had an equally great time cruising around the islands enjoying sailboats, seals, and watching other people's sailor dogs (and being happy we decided to leave Bella at home for this trip - she's not much of a sea dog).

It was a great day in the sun, and miraculously both Dave & I came home without boasting any red shoulders!  This doesn't happen very often.

Thanks Newport (and Mom & Dad) for a great day!  We love you the most.

I am so jealous you live so close to the ocean! where did you and your sister get your suits?! they are adorable!

Yay! This made me the happiest. Everyone looks so relaxed and sun-drenched. This post is my happy place.

Hey thanks Ali! My suit is from Land's End Canvas and my sister's is from Everything But Water - check them out!

And we missed you Kristin! You would have added to the sun-drenched-ness perfectly.
