Celebrating 2 years

It all started about 3 years ago... Andy turned in a resume to be my friend and he was hired - little did he know that I was hiring him into marriage. We celebrated our 2 year anniversary a couple weeks ago by going on vacation. We went to a Metz game, stayed a night in Connecticut and then drove to Newport, Rhode Island where we spent two days in a cute bed and breakfast. We enjoyed the beautiful scenery of an old New England town. Here are some pictures from our trip.

The Metz actually won! The price of a hot dog: $4.75

Watching the waves.

It was too cold to swim, but we enjoyed being near the ocean and watching the waves crash into rocks.
Many wealthy families, like the Vanderbilts, had summer "homes" in Newport, RI. They were built in the late 1800's and have been restored and opened for tours as Historic landmarks. This mansion had 70 rooms in it, but they only showed us around 15 rooms. The owners typically only stayed 8 weeks each summer. Someday we plan on owning a summer home just like it. :)
