Oregon Coast Aquarium

On Tuesday, I mentioned that we went on a couple of field trips during our camping vacation. Our first exploration was the Oregon Coast Aquarium. I wish I had captured the look on Princess' and Blue Eye Boy's faces when they first walked into this area.

Somewhere in there is a Red Pacific Octopus. The two of them searched for quite some time, trying to find it. Yes, they even got down on hands and knees to look below.

The two friends spent a great deal of time outside with the Puffins . . .

. . . and inside exploring the sea life.

At the end of our day, we headed over to the play area for some much needed play and climbing.

And the Lizard King and I were feeling quite . . . shady. ; )

Tomorrow I'll show you field trip number two!


  1. Very cool aquarium. I think the tunnel area would make me feel a little claustrophobic.

  2. You think so, Secret Mom? It's a pretty big area and open on both ends . . . Maybe one day you'll come to Oregon for a visit and we can find out!
    ; )

  3. Wow! What an awesome place. So cool that it's so hands on. :P

    Cheese factory tomorrow?

  4. We do love the aquarium, Sheri, and try to get there every other year. I was thrilled that Princess could be hands on this time. Last time, her skin was so bad she was in pain the minute she put her hands in the water.

    And yes, cheese factory tomorrow!
