This Rhode Island vacation is really hitting its stride.
Mostly because we used up the single ply toilet paper in our rental house and bought double ply. I think you’ll find that double ply really makes all the difference when it comes to quality of life.
When we aren’t enjoying the double ply, it’s fun to watch my brother-in-law spend hours hunting down mosquitoes in the house. From what I can tell, his technique involves turning off the lights a lot, cursing and madly thrashing his arms about. But I have very few bites so something must be working.
And yes, there’s been a lot of schlepping on this vacation…
But so many moments of joy…
Especially at the Water Wizz. That’s a rinky dink water slide park in town. Obviously we wanted to go because the name is so classy.
It turned out to be ridiculously fun.
Here’s Chase after he got splashed while watching Rick…
It’s so rough being a spectator.
And my 68-year-old mother was apparently over boogie boarding and thought flying down a water slide would be more fun – so she joined us too.
That woman is racing through her bucket list.
Then we hit the beach where Rick, riding high on his water slide acumen, lost his brand new John Varvatos sunglasses in the Atlantic ocean.
And because he’s the luckiest bastard on the planet, he and his volunteer search crew not only found his glasses but a pair of Oakleys at well.
In fact, a couple on the beach asked Rick if he could find some rings they lost in the water the day before.
He is on it.
