Making the Most of It

 This week Ally and I have been trying to take advantage of our girl time. Jake stays at soccer camp until noon, and Grant stays until 3 pm.  One morning we went window shopping and then split a hot dog. Not just any hot dog. It was wrapped with bacon placed on top of Korean BBQ and topped with wasabi mayo, seaweed, and kimchi. You see why we split it! We also went for a braces removal appointment.

I think she's happy!

Before we picked up Jake, we headed out to clothes shop for school She isn't required to wear uniforms and has been asking to buy some.  Getting out of her pajamas for school will be a new thing for her! Then we picked up Jake and headed out for sushi.  Jake loves the sushi carousel.  All that good food just circling around you!  

Talk about fresh fish! You watch them cut and slice it up. 

I remember when we were in China and Jake saw the tiny smelt swimming around in a black tub of water.  He was so angry with his new Baba because we wouldn't buy them. I remember him complaining about us to our coordinator who explained that this new mama and baba had no way of cooking them for him in the hotel room! Well, today, he got his fried smelt, head and all. He enjoyed EVERY PIECE of them too. 

You can see his sushi plates to the left in the picture all stacked up. Then he eyed up the food that the lady next to him was eating.  This kind Japanese woman offered him some of the food off her plates twice! He topped off his lunch with some red bean ice cream and loved every second of eating it! 

I love taking him places to eat like this because he enjoys eating this stuff so much. I never seen a kid really enjoy the aspect of eating as much as Jake. He never takes it for granted.

Your mama/daughter girl time made me smile. We've been trying to take advantage of any opportunity to do some one on one or at least one on two time with our kids lately.
And the sushi place? YUM!
