Girls Room

Have you made over one of your kid's rooms lately?

We've been in our house about seven months now and have no plans to move, which is weird and new to us. We decided to let our daughter pick our her own bedroom color. The color is Frosty and it's Lowes's Valspar paint with primer in the paint. It only took one can of paint to do the entire room.
rooms for girls
You can make your own tissue paper pom poms and hang them with a pretty ribbon.

Now, I'm in the process of putting the room back together. Her bulletin board is from Hobby Lobby and so is that sassy lamp. The pink animal holder is from Ikea. I had the hair bow holder made for her.

OSU Hatfield Science Visitor Center - Newport, OR

OSU has an awesome free science center in Newport, OR located inside the OSU Hatfield Marine Science Visitor Center. They charge nothing for admission, but do accept donations.

It’s a small science museum, but they have packed in the hands on exhibits. The day we went there was an educational lecture on whales. They also have the Yaquina Estuary Nature Trail outside on the property that is open to the public from dawn to dusk. The trail is ½ mile paved and wheelchair-accessible.

Learning Exhibits

  • Tsunamis and Earthquakes
  • Sustainable Fisheries
  • Tide Pools
  • Invasive Species
  • Octopus and Sunstars


Touch Pools

They had touch tanks full of fun sea creatures. Our kids spent most of their time here touching starfish and various anemones.
