My Birthday!

We celebrated my birthday by playing at the park, spending a nice relaxing day together, enjoying a delicious meal and beautiful cake!  What more could I want?  More and more I realize how precious our time together as a family is.  Thanks for a wonderful birthday Tetsushi, Yukine and Hiroto!

Happy Birthday Yukine!

We got to celebrate Yukine's birthday at Youchien.  It is so fun for me to go and see all of the kids.  Hiroto had so much fun, he got plenty of attention.  Happy Birthday Yukine!  I can't believe you are 4 years old!

Yukine birthday morning

The first thing Yukine did when she woke up was to open her present from Baba and Jiji.  First the card, which sings 'Happy Birthday'!  Yukine really likes that card...we can enjoy the birthday song over and over and over!  Next she got a beautiful new dress made by Baba with a matching bag.  And inside the bag she found very fancy tissues.  She immediately put on her dress and got ready to go to Youchien.  It is such a beautiful dress Baba, Yukine loves it!  Thank you Baba and Jiji!

Fun day at the playground


We went to pick up some pumpkins from our local farm.  It was so hot and dusty.

Happy Birthday Hiroto!

Hiroto turned 1 on July 28!  I am so late posting this, but I think Hiroto's 1st birthday needs to be on the blog...
We started the morning making tissue paper flowers, and then moved on to the presents.  Yukine was doing her job as big sister and taught him how to open presents.  He got so many nice gifts.  Thank you everyone who sent out gifts for him!  And, of course, we made a roll cake.  It's getting to be a birthday tradition at our house.  Happy Birthday Hiro-kun!  I can't believe he is already 1!
