Newport Coast with the Continos

Last weekend I was invited out of town with the Continos for some fun in the sun! We drove down to Newport Thursday morning and arrived at Marriott's Newport Coast Villa's by the afternoon. The hotel was amazingly beautiful, with gorgeous landscape everywhere overlooking the ocean. There were 3 pools at the main pool area, and numerous spa's. The kids loved swimming the days away. We enjoyed lots of other hotel activities, including pool games, mini golf, basketball, tetherball, pottery painting, tie dying t-shirts, snowcones, ice cream socials, and treasure hunts. It was like a cruise ship and we did it all! When we weren't playing or relaxing by the pool, we headed into Newport to visit Fashion Island numerous times, the beach, Sprinkles, and dinners out. We had a fun packed four days. Thank you Continos for inviting me along. I had a blast!

Let the posing begin! I pulled our my camera and this crew hammed it up!

Friday night Fashion Island run. We shopped, visited the pet store, and ate at PF Changs. To finish the night we stopped at Sprinkles. Amazing!

Saturday morning I hung out the boys. There was lots of rolling down hills, and sports playing. Leo rolling away.
