weekend in rhode island

it was a fun weekend with my sisters in rhode island.
we kicked off the weekend with heading to the atlantic ocean to spread mom ashes and enjoy the breaking waves.

we also celebrated one sister's bagel birthday ... and spend a morning at a spa getting facials. my first ever. wild.

it was great spending the majority of the time just with my sisters. we could be silly together and take a gazillion photos and get lost going from place to place. i feel like i'm getting a better feel for providence, the city where my mother grew up.

cool.

My sister put her son's ashes in the Atlantic Ocean also--except much farther south. They had travelled together to Ocrocoake Island several times and that place seemed appropriate.

What is a "bagel birthday"?

A bagel birthday is any decade birthday. The bagel looks like a zero, hence the bagel.

:)

I can't believe how much fun it was spreading my mom's ashes in the ocean. I wanted her ashes to catch waves or surf them ... symbolizing mom was catching or surfing the waves. Silly, I guess. We did get wet. I was surprised the water wasn't cold. I guess it takes a few months of winter for the water to cool down.

I love the term "bagel birthday". I think I'll use that with my family.
