Flo's Clam Shack

Last vacation post--I promise!  When we were in RI we wanted to take advantage of the great seafood that Newport has to offer so we ate just about any fish we could get our hands on. Greg LOVES New England clam chowder and ate a big bowl of it just about everyday.  We enjoyed clam strips, fish and chips, crab cakes (on numerous occasions), calamari, stuffed shrimp, coconut shrimp, shrimp scampi (who says pregnant women should eat shrimp in moderation?  I don't believe it!) lobster bisque, and quahogs (hard shell clams).  We ate at some top-notch restaurants and some local joints and all of it was sooo good!  On Sunday, before we all had to part our separate ways we headed to a local place called Flo's Clam Shack and enjoyed a nice, relaxing lunch with a great view of the Atlantic!

So, first off, there was the longest line I have ever seen to order food.  I didn't mind because the long line told me that something had to be good.  Plus there was fun stuff to do in line like this...

Greg wouldn't dare subject Jace to posing in a polka-dot bikini, so he took the hit.  That's sacrificial love baby.  Nice bod Jace!  And Auntie Jill kept Jace occupied in the long line while playing a fun game of peek-a-boo.  
Jace was loving it!  He wouldn't have cared if the line never moved.  This is his game!
They give each customer these cool rocks with your order number on it.  Some small, some large, kinda cool.  
When Jace can get his hands on a lemon, he does!  He loves them even though he makes this face after squeezing one into his mouth...
Jace enjoyed the lunch as much as anyone!  This kid loves fish and chips!
We enjoyed our last vacation as a family of 3.  We hope to keep our tradition of going to Newport each August!  It is a beautiful time to visit and it seems to work for everyone in my family.  Our trip is already set for next year because my big brother is getting married!!!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
