Girls Day 2020

Filed under: — Andy @ 8:35 pm

Nothing too exiting for Girls Day. We made the usual sushi balls, clam soup, and three layer jelly. Melina made the male and female dolls display.

Melina is 5!

Filed under: — Andy @ 8:23 pm

It seems the whole house turned up to wish Melina a happy birthday. Like last year both Suzuna and I made cakes. This year when I asked Melina what kind of cake she wanted, she said she wanted a rainbow cake so I tried my best. I think it turned out better than I was expecting, but honestly I would rather eat the cake Suzuna made. Melina had a great time, enjoyed both the cakes, and got some Legos, art supplies, and other small toys.

There was a lot of people again for the bean throwing festival at the house. Melina liked making and eating the sushi rolls, and this year she made her own Oni mask at school.

Lion King the Musical

Filed under: — Andy @ 6:54 pm

For Suzuna’s birthday, we did something a little special, and I took her and Melina to go see the Lion King Broadway musical. Although all the songs were in Japanese, it was great. Melina really enjoyed seeing all the animal puppets and Suzuna enjoyed the whole experience.

Lets go Fly a Kite

Filed under: — Andy @ 6:47 pm

On a very windy day at the end of the year we took Melina to go fly her new kite at the park. It was so windy it took some strength to hold on to the kite, but she still had a great time all the while singing the lets go fly a kite song from Mary Poppins.
