Other fun vacation stuff

One day we walked out to some tide pools and saw more star fish than we could count. Here Emma is reaching down to touch one. It was pretty cool to see so many star fish, but boy was it a long walk with little kids.

We went on a hike to see what is bragged to be the oldest tree in Oregon, or was it the tallest, or the biggest around, something special like that:)

At a playground we visited the kids thought this throne chair carved out of an old stump was pretty cool. Emma was especially excited about her turn alone on the queen chair!

We got to go to the top of the Yaquina Head Lighthouse. Some of us did anyway. Andrew and Emma weren't tall enough so Kari and Eric stayed with our little ones while Eldon and I climbed it.

One of the days it rained we went to an underwater museum in Depot Bay. The kids got to touch sea anenome and star fish. We also saw some pretty cool fish through the display windows and a diving show.

It's fun to catch up on all the fun your family has been having. I'm glad it's been a good summer.
