Camping: Day Four and Last Post

Lucky for all of you, this is my last post about camping, but don't worry we have been so busy this week that I have plenty of material for a few more posts. The morning of our final day Noah completed his Junior Ranger packet and brought it to the Park Ranger to receive his badge. After that they went to the class of fish where Noah's favorite part was the Ranger dissecting the Herring so they could see all the parts like the gills. While the kids were down doing that Joel and I finished breaking camp and packing up the van. We all left shortly after and headed to the Oregon Coast Aquarium (pictures below). After the aquarium we went to the Rogue Brewery for lunch and as shocking as this may seem, a beer. The drive home seemed long and I'm not sure if it was because we were sad to go or if it was because exhaustion was setting in.

Here fishy fishy.

This is a BABY spider crab, as an adult they can reach up to 13 feet in length. Can you imagine being in the water and coming across a full grown one of these?

Oliver would look but not touch.

Taking a little break with my boys.

A family picture, oh yeah, we're looking a bit ragged.

Oliver flirting with the pretty girl - again!

I guess this tortoise needed a dental check.

I'm not sure we even made it out of Newport before this one crashed!

Isn't this the best area?! We missed the aquarium, but hit the Rogue Brewery for dinner. Great pictures Tiffany. Everyone looks like they were having so much fun. And tell Joel, I have that same hat!
