Our home

Ashton and I had to eat lunch on the go....these are our favorite salmon onigiri 

Every year, the American compound that we live on hosts a "Friendship Day". It's a day where anyone outside of the compound can come and spend the day, eat great food and really just enjoy a big American celebration. 
The compound is very secure (guards at both gates) and you have to have permission to come onto it if you aren't  a part of the embassy community. So for outsiders, it is nice to come in and see our "home".

Ashton had an audition and then right after that a magazine job so we were gone from 11-3. Virginia took the babies around to watch the hula dancers and to meet the Sesame Street characters. Tommy and Weston entertained some of his Japanese friends and colleagues with different activities and parties. 
We all met up once Ashton and I got home and concluded our big day.

We were all exhausted from all of the fun, but had and exciting day!
Looking forward to next year!
