Even though I started my job only a week earlier, I still was able to take off Thanksgiving and the day after. I was very thankful for this! We decided to sleep in on Friday instead of braving the stores for the Black Friday deals. That afternoon we went to the Boston Bruins game. This was the first professional hockey game I have been to and we had a blast!
Saturday we met up with Margaret and Adam. We went down to Charles Street to walk around some local shops and we ate brunch at Paramount. Then we loaded up in the car and drove to Newport, Rhode Island.
When we got into the city, we checked into our hotel. They were working on a giant gingerbread house... So cool!
Our first stop was the Cliff Walk. This is a tour of million dollar homes along the coast of Newport. Here are a few of the houses we saw:
We walked around some of the shops around town then found a place to eat dinner. There was one major thing we were looking for this night.... somewhere to watch the Egg Bowl!! Of course we were the only ones in the place interested in the game. Adam and Margaret were for Ole Miss and John and I were cheering for State. We had a great dinner!
Sunday we got up and found a place to eat breakfast. We walked around a little more then decided to head back to Boston. Newport is a beautiful harbor town and we had a great trip!
