Yuri's birthday

On Yuri's birthday, she wanted to go hiking, but it was really raining.
So, we put rain gears on, and took a short walk.
She felt happy to have these people in her life, people who didn't care rain to have fun!

Once we dried out, we went to the family dinner.
Again, she was just so happy to be with them.

birthday cake

Such a beautiful and delicious birthday cake made by Mio, ordered by Sakiko:)

Thank you!

Westmoreland Park

We checked out one of the most amazing (nature-based) playground
designed by Green Works.

Milo played at their sand area,

played on the glass area,

and climbed up the wood stacks

and rocks.

The park was surrounded by lots of trees,

the trees we could hang

and sit on.

We sent some photos from this park and convinced our friends to visit us from SF!


 Yuri has worked on making a handbook about miso/miso soup
for her miso making workshops.
Today, Milo was modeling for her to put some photos in the book.

Ok, he is over it now...

It was just 3 second sneeze,
but Yuri was so stoked to be able to film it.
