Girl Scout Aquarium Overnight Field Trip

I made these bags out of old pairs of jeans for Izzie and Maddie to sew all their scout patches. I was rushing to get them ready for their first GS Overnight! I didn't get all their patches sewn on, but at least I got a start. (Patches are acquired from attending events or visiting places, badges are earned and are sewn to the uniform.) 

 After a 3+ hour drive, we made it to the Newport Aquarium. The troop used their cookie sale money to pay for an overnight at the Newport, Oregon Aquarium to sleep with the Sharks. Pretty amazing field trip!

 The view I woke up to, after the sleepover!

 We got to the aquarium just as it was closing to the public for the night. We got a private tour around the entire place, which was really cool!

 Sleeping bags in the shark tunnel.

 The next morning we went to tour a lighthouse interactive museum. We did not get to go up in the lighthouse though.

 After lunch, we went to the beach. The water is too cold here to swim without a wetsuit, but the girls had fun playing in the sand. It was WINDY.
