My son took to her right away. For some reason he called her "Ginger Woman", but she thought it was cute, so the nickname stuck. They became fast friends and he wanted to show her all of the happening places toddlers like to hang. Our first stop was Roger Williams Park. Nate showed her his favorite animal on the carousel.
When she still wouldn't listen, he showed her exactly what happens to chicks who don't obey the rules.
She pretty much fell in line after that, so we headed to the playground. Rhode Island is the home of Hasbro and when they heard Mona was coming to town they sent their best representative to greet her.After running around all day at the park we were all a bit hungry. We decided to hit up one of the local farms to get some fresh apples, blueberries and veggies for dinner.
Since I am pregnant, I told her I'd be the designated driver. Man did she take advantage! By the end of the night I was looking all over for her, and half expected to hear she went home with one of the groomsmen, but I found her passed out in my purse.
After she slept of all of the champagne, we relaxed for the day before we headed to one of Providence's coolest events, WaterFire. She was amazed by the 100 bonfires that are lit in the middle of the three rivers that run through downtown Providence.
It was a nice, relaxing end to her trip through the Ocean State. She bid us farewell and said if she were ever in Long Island again she'd come to visit. I didn't bother to correct her, everyone makes that mistake. But just for the record, Rhode Island is a state & Long Island is in New York!
