It was the weekend when my brother and cousin were in town, and it’s one for the history books, I tell you! More about that later, but that was the first celebration.
Then we were in Japan for the actual day. We had a pancake breakfast in a tiny little house in Tokyo and went sightseeing all. day. long. That is one of Dave’s very favorite things to do in the whole entire world. Do you sense the sarcasm there? But really, he ate it up and we had a great time.
One of his gifts was a little overnight get-away at a hotel downtown. We haven’t had the opportunity to “date” as much as we do back in the states because life is so different here and we are living up every weekend as a family, so we were both so excited to sneak away overnight on a weekday for a special celebration just the two of us. This was our view.
…and then as the sun set over the Bund:
Took our breath away that this has been our city for a few months, and how it will all seem like a dream so soon. Trying so hard to live up the last few weeks.
We went out to dinner at a restaurant with a gorgeous view.
