le beach

Yesterday, we went to the Scarborough Beach in Rhode Island for Adam's mom's birthday :) I had never been to an east coast beach before, or Rhode Island so I was pretty excited. Thank you Rachel for taking all of the pictures!!
Me and Cindy <3

Unfortunately, Adam and I didn't stay that long. Get this! Like 20 minutes into us being at the beach, I put on this dark tanning lotion that Adam's sister handed me and all of a sudden my entire body literally feels like it is on fire, like burning!! It was a horrible feeling :( Then, it all started getting swollen. The rest of the time was spent in first aid and in a wicked cold shower that they had to cool me off and to get all of the oil off of me. I guess it was an allergic reaction that burned my skin :( Insane!! It was horrible and obviously threw me into a panic. It took about an hour to get it all off enough for my skin to stop burning. Thank you to Mom MacLean and Adam for taking care of me :)
At least now I can totally say that I have been to Rhode Island and the burned skin gives me some color :) Gotta look at the positive you know :)
When we got home, we relaxed a bit and then headed to Adam's parent's house for a game night of Boggle, Go Fish, and Lincoln Logs :) It was a great night and despite my beach drama (ha!), she said it was the best birthday that she had ever had :) I love her so much!!
Today is going to be a pretty chill day. I am going to sew with Adam's mom, Adam is going to help his dad landscape. This will be our first "down day" of the trip.
On a side note: Big hugs and love and prayers to Margot today!!! You are going to rock it!!! I love you and I am so proud of you for even auditioning!! Coolest New Yorker that I know!! Maybe I will see you tomorrow :) Love you!!!

  3. Sorry to hear about your "beach" drama. Hope the burn is better by now.

    I love the pic of Adam with his quilt...how neat is that!

  4. oh my goodness! i would have been FREAKING out, and probably done the wrong thing like run into the ocean and have the salt make it ten times worse or something.
