We celebrated our wedding anniversary, the beginning of strawberry season, AND Father’s Day this past weekend so I thought it warranted a blog post – why not? We headed down to Newport, RI for the weekend and kicked it off with a night out for my husband and I (thanks M&D) to celebrate 6 years of wedded bliss (most of the time) with a dinner out and perhaps a couple too many drinks. =)
We ate at tsk (that’s Thames Street Kitchen) and it did not disappoint. The space is very cozy (and no AC so be prepared to sweat in the summer!) and a menu that changes weekly depending on the local ingredients available. Oh, and it’s BYOB so bring your fave bottle of wine or stop in at the liquor store down the street if you forget.
The food was incredible – above is my appetizer: tempura soft shell crab, so delicious. They had 5 entree options and almost always have a version of their fried chicken and always a beef option. For dessert they only had cookies, donuts, or ice cream which felt very simple to us but after such a gourmet meal a tiny donut was just what we needed.
The next day was perfect strawberry picking weather so to the farm we went! We love Sweet Berry Farm in Middltown, RI for all our berry picking – (strawberries, peaches, blueberries and raspberries, and even before kids!).
This time everyone seemed to help me pick…
…and ate only a few.
It sure was exhausting (for them too, ha!).
The next day was father’s day and we celebrated with my husband, dad, and brother in law. On our way out of town we hit up the venue where we got married where there’s an old fashioned carousel. We love, love where we got married especially because we can visit every year with the kids and go down memory lane of our fabulous wedding day. We were the only ones on the carousel and they blasted the music and it was such a fun moment remembering that night! Great weekend!
