Getting to eat it! Yummy!! Everyone really enjoyed our visit, and it'll be on the list for another visit over the summer I'm sure. We'd love to go through the scenic drive by the capes next summer and give the girls some opportunity to explore another section of the coast.
After visiting the cheese factory it was off to visit the local outdoor store before heading out to the Tillamook Forest Center.
We didn't get to far however, since we needed to be back and meet up with the teacher and even more classmates! The ranger took us out on a small hike "lesson" where she pretended to be the most UN-prepared hiker EVER!!
We have decided we should not ask her to go hiking with us since she has to stop every 15 feet because she is cold, hungry, thirst, lost or needs to go to the bathroom. The girls got a kick out of it however, and realize that planning for a hike is very important and what somethings we need to bring on our hikes are and what they do. Of course this probably means we will have to get new emergency blankets, poncho's, first aid kits, etc. before our next serious hike so everyone can carry their own supplies! Of course since the girls are both joining the girl scouts and are learning to "be prepared" it's a good first lesson!
Then it was back into the classroom to learn more about products that come from the forrest.
