Visiting Rhode Island 2011 - Bowen's Wharf

Last July, we went for our 2nd visit to Newport, Rhode Island to celebrate Shian's birthday. We really love this city. It's about a 3 hour trip from Albany, surrounded by water and there's a lot of interesting things to do. This time around, we decided to stay near downtown Newport and just explore and relax.

_MG_7558We just love this car! He just had a bath and the lighting was nice with all the reflections. It is a 2008 Toyota Highlander Hybrid and I think I like the look of this generation more than the new 2012's._MG_7560 _MG_7562
 I wasn't really sleepy ^^,_MG_7581
It was raining hard when we left Albany but it did stop when we reached Rhode Island. As we were crossing the first bridge (I forgot the name), half of it was covered with fog and It felt like something out of a zombie movie. Really Creepy. _MG_7582_MG_7599 _MG_7636_MG_7611 _MG_7642_MG_7639 _MG_7644 _MG_7648_2 _MG_7649 _MG_7663_MG_7667_MG_7665 _MG_7682_MG_7680 _MG_7677
We ate at The Black Pearl down at Bowen's Wharf. Loved their clam chowder but also loved their lobster roll. Can't wait to go back to have some more!
_MG_7679 Shian had the Grilled Shrimp and Scallops. Yum!

Isaiah's Baptism

_MG_0099 Last September 18, we went to the christening of Gen+Ina's son, Isaiah, and we were honored to be a part of the celebration as one of the Godparents. We have been to a couple of Christening's since coming to the US and it's always a joy to share in the happiness of having a baby be a part of the Catholic family. Traditionally here in the US, they only have a pair of Godparents but being from the Philippines... it is nice that the tradition of having at least 3-7 pairs have crossed over too. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the Baptism. Enjoy!

 The baby bottle is always the best tool to keep a cranky baby happy! _MG_0197
Annointing with oil... The oil was very pepperminty. We met with them after a few days and Issey still smelled minty!
