Halloween and Obata Ryokuchi Koen

After two weeks silence, I am back. I had an unfortunate slip down the steps at school, which resulted in a lot of lazing around the house. (It DID at least encourage my kids to hold the handrail on the stairs, so there’s that!!) I’m now at about 80%, so back to the adventures!

Yesterday, we went to Teddy’s friend Ben’s house for a Halloween party!

One of his friends brought this super cute kabocha gratin! I love how they carved a face!!

Ben had made this really fun Halloween game that we are totally stealing for the upcoming Panda class sleepover! (Though ours will be Christmas themed…)

I was on the Japanese language team. I apparently can kick ass at Taboo in Japanese, too. My favorite was when I got them to put together the word “penny” by getting them to say the second half of ball pen and the Japanese word for two. LOL.

Teddy was on the English team.

Me and Teddy were Kiki and Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery Service. This was taken after I was sick of my hair being all tied up. 😀

Today, we WERE going to bike to Green Pier near Kozoji Station, but it was like 21 km and we didn’t start out till like 1:30, so we just went to Obata Ryokuchi Koen in Moriyama-ku. (Still 12 km).

We had passed a cake that advertised Cake and Coffee. That was a straight lie. They did, however, give you a free waffle with ice cream with your drink.

The Shonai River looked really pretty today.

Well, that’s all for this weekend!!
