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.
