Oregon, The Saga: Part 3

We spent the fourth day of our trip at the Newport Aquarium - definitely a highlight for all of us.

Up close with a harbor seal.

Grace petting a starfish.

The otters really liked Marty.

We took a break for lunch at a nearby restaurant, then walked the pier and chatted with some people who were crabbing.

The sea lion feeding/show.

Jacob and Isaac looking too happy to be in a shark's mouth.

Quick family portrait.

On the fifth day, the boys made an attempt at kite-flying on the beach. Not too successful, unfortunately. I think it was the only time during our trip that it wasn't windy.

Beachcombing at Agate Beach.

Mart's best find: a nearly-whole sand dollar.

Grace just liked collecting the sand.

Sightseeing down at the Bayfront.

The murals that covered the buildings there were remarkable.

The boys' favorite part of the day - a trip to the Newport Candy Shoppe, where they sell lollipops bigger than your head.

It looks like your family had a fantastic time! I'm so happy for you, and a little jealous. If the Lord decides to give us kids you'll have to give me details so we can go.
