Chinatown Aquarium

Filed under: — Andy @ 8:06 am

I found a new aquarium right in the middle of Chinatown. It is small and designed especially for kids, but for the location and price it was actually very nice. There is even a kids play room with a slide and jungle gym complete with builtin fish tanks, a small show on how different fish catch their food, and Melina also got the chance to feed the sea turtle.

This year I spent my birthday on an airplane to Guam for a business trip. Besides the fact that North Korea had just threatened to send a missile to the island, I was a bit exited to go as I had never been to Guam before. Although the work part of the trip was not fun, I did bring my family out at the end of the work week and along with a few extra days of leave got to spend some time enjoying the island.

Ostrich Farm

Filed under: — Andy @ 7:58 pm

After picking blueberries we went to the ostrich farm. Not only can you feed the ostriches, but there are lots of other animals you can pet and hold and play with.

Playing in the Log House

Filed under: — Andy @ 12:26 am

At a park near our house there is a log play house built for kids. There are nets and slides and secret passage ways and toys and blocks and lots of fun things for kids to play with. On rainy afternoons we like to go there and let Melina play and run around.
