We were just walking back with the Gardner's (Paula and Ross family) from Himeji Castle, when what should we spot, but a NINJA!!!
He was pretty fun, you can see him here if you zoom in posing for our shots. You can tell he's just a Ninja in training because we can see him. Obviously we would never spot a real Ninja. I'm pretty sure they're all over in Japan, we just never see them.
Jace was super excited about seeing the Ninja
Here was a park in Hiroshima, the first inkling of cherry blossoms! We were all pretty excited, but especially Brighton.
This park had awesome Carp you could feed (you got fish feed with the price of admission, it was about $5 for the family)
view from other side of the pond
Jace was pretty happy to find an "American" fish (it was red white and blue)
The pigeons liked the fish food as well. Faith really liked having the gross pigeons walk on her.
Here's where a small Japanese child fell in and got devoured by the vicious carp.
Also, our kids got flying powers from the nuclear energy floating around in the Japanese atmosphere.
Jace did too, but he got the bonus of one of his hands turning into a leather baseball glove.
They have this awesome park on Awagi Island. the kids got soaking wet of course.
cherry blossoms galore!
The Sumsions were visiting!
They just wanted to "walk" in the water. "Dad, we'll pull up our pants, it will be fine they said"
Jace looked like he'd had some kind of major accident (he later sat down in the sand in his wet, white shorts).
