Dear Maya and Emi,
Well, mommy has a good reason for not posting last week!
We had a very full weekend starting off with pictures in the park. Mommy was taking photos of other families and then Aunt Rhi took ours. It was so much fun and we got some really cute shots for our Christmas cards. Mommy is saving the best ones for the cards, but here are some great outtakes:
|Thanks for these pictures, Auntie Rhi!|
Then we headed to New York City! Emi, it was your first time on the train and you were so good. Once there we checked into our lovely hotel room (great view of the Empire State Building!) and then headed out to the Central Park Zoo and Rockefeller Center where they were decorating the tree.
The next day we headed to the Japanese Consulate (our reason for the trip) and got lost looking for a Japanese bookstore. We walked around a lot! Well, actually mommy and daddy walked around a lot. Emi, you were in the stroller and Maya, you got tired and had daddy carry you several times. It was a great trip but we were all so tired out by the time we got back home. New York City with two small kids is not something we want to do on a regular basis!
And now we're less than a week from Thanksgiving and Grandma and Papa Stan arrived today! It's going to be a great holiday!
Love you both!
