3. Learn how to filter water.
Saturday morning my mother called me to ask if we are going to do Hanami. In fact, she has already done it in the park not far from her house. I asked her why she did it and why we should do it. She told me no matter what you need to eat meal why not enjoy cherry blossom and nice spring weather outside.
It was nice and warm this Saturday. We walked on the river side and went to Japanese Home Depot (Jesse spend two hours to try to find some pieces to modify a Nerf gun which made all of us crazy). Any way, Jesse picked a 57 cents plastic tube. It was time to eat lunch. We decided to follow the Japanese sprit to eat our lunch by cherry trees.
Akiva is going to middle school started from this August. Nagoya city gave a free baseball admission to all primary graduates in Nagoya. Nagoya has Chunichi Dragons, a professional baseball team in the Central League. We were invited to watch game in their Nagoaya dome stadium. A
Dragons played against Marines. Marines fan was very organized, had cool cheers like playing brass band, swinging big flags, singing and jumping up and down (not cute sexy cheer leader type). I really wanted to join them. Jesse and kids convinced me I am just having a mid age crisis.
We actually found a many seashells, and pine cone fossil. It was very interesting how fragile organic pine cone was preserved. Many sands got into between plates which maintained the shape of pine cone.
Do not attempt this at home. These scenes filmed by trained professionals using high-tech equipment (the boffer swords I made for Akiva’s Birthday present).
Still a boy. Not a teenager yet. But soon. OK… focus on the here and now… the positive. For the party, we had…
4 layer Ice-cream cake… perfect except the strawberry flavor.
The day before, we went out to go strawberry picking.
The day before, we went out to go strawberry picking. When we arrived, they told us we can’t take any strawberries home… have to eat them all there. With condensed milk. So for lunch we ate… just strawberries.
After Picking, we went to a shop and we all made pottery. It will take them 3 months before they fire it (or whatever it’s called) and we get our pottery back.
