Sunday/Bum Day

Sunday was a bum around day. We made origami as you can see here. I found a japanese dollar store that sells all kinds of cool things from japan. It's actually NOT a dollar store it's a $1.50 store! The japanese are experts at making things miniature. I found tiny tongs that are probably about 4 inches long and little bitty bottles that they use in the kids school lunches for soy sauce. I found a origami instruction book there as well as the paper. It's pretty difficult to do though because I can't read japanese so we just did the easy ones. I made a rabbit (the one near Logan's face) and he made the fish and boat.
Another thing we did was the slip n slide. The pool was closed because it did not have enough chlorine in it so we decided to pull this out of storage. The boys had a great time especially when Chris started throwing them down it! Unfortunately I didn't get any pics of that.

Here's the Statue of Liberty "Guam style". A couple of the pointy things are broken off of her crown. This is in a park here at the most western point of the island. It's the furthest part west of America. Guamanians pride themselves on being the island where "America's Day begins". See more pics of our day in the album.
