We grabbed breakfast at Empire, took it again to the condominium (we keep on the Wellington Resort yearly), and received ourselves prepared for the day. We did a bit purchasing on Thames Avenue and popped right into a magic store since Quinn has taken a current curiosity. The person working there was tremendous good and confirmed us just a few four 12 months old-friendly tips that Quinn completely cherished.

After lunch, Quinn went down for a nap whereas Mal and I took turns understanding. I forgot my working sneakers (wahhhh – I like working in Newport), so I did a quickie power exercise within the resort fitness center. Higher than nothing, proper?
As soon as Quinn was awake, we headed to the Top of Newport with Papi and Lori for pleased hour. Quinn was nonetheless loving his magic trick field and actually getting the dangle of it, so he determined to go across the restaurant and present strangers his magic present.
