Chubby Cheeks

For Cameron's birthday we went whale watching over the weekend in Depoe Bay.

Our tour was supposed to be at 11, but we got delayed two hours because they had a really low tide that morning and there were a ton of ships waiting to get out.

Wesley was really excited about the whole thing. That is, until they made him wear a life jacket.
The life jacket was a little big for him. It puffed his cheeks up and made it impossible for him to turn his head, which meant that we had to turn his entire body when he wanted to look the other way. 
He tried his hardest to be a trooper though. He did just fine through the first half hour, I think it helped that everything on the boat was so new and interesting. When he started getting grumpy, I handed him a snack to eat. He tried to bring his hand to his mouth, but when he couldn't reach because the life jacket was in the way he really lost it.

The big bummer was that we saw no whales. Apparently orcas and a grey whale were spotted around noon (when we would have been out had there not been a delay). Oh well, we had fun right? (Cue more pictures of Wes having a "great time")

 He he he. Another one for the albums.
