Egg Shop & Zoo

JAPAN | Friday, 13 Nov 2009 | Views [513] | Comments [1]

Megumi and I ate at a nice Japanese lunch buffet where she introduced me to the tropical Chinese fruit Lychee for dessert.  The outside of it reminded me more of a nut than a fruit, but it peeled off easily to reveal a white fruity flesh.  The closest ... Read more >

Today was our first wedding anniversary!  We can't believe how quickly time has gone by!  It's been a whirlwind of a year with many, many changes.  Last year on this day, we were married on the beautiful beaches of Jamaica.  Then the traveling adventures ... Read more >

Brandon and I went down to American Village to check out their costume contest and grab a bite to eat.  (Check out some of the costumes we saw in our photo gallery.)  It rained off and on, so there wasn't as big of a turn out as predicted, but it was ... Read more >

As part of my on-going "Dessert Diplomacy" efforts, I made these cute Halloween spider cookies.  They are frosted and decorated Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies.  Brandon says they taste good.  (I don't like chocolate cookies, so I've only sampled ... Read more >


Soup Soup!

Megumi and I had a wonderful lunch at Soup Soup on the second floor of Max Furniture and right across from Today!OK.  And no, I'm not kidding.   We both chose soup sets.  I had a bowl of their clam chowder, which was soy based with peas, carrots, onions, ... Read more >

And now, for the main reason we were back in PA in October - Joy's wedding!  We were so happy to be able to be there to celebrate Joy and Sean's big day in person!  It was so wonderful to get to see the Entwistle family again, and meet Sean's family, ... Read more >


Food, fun, and fireworks

We had a wonderful, albeit, whirlwind of a trip to PA for Joy's wedding.  Between squeezing in some appointments, speed shopping, and dress fittings, we were able to catch up with some of my family and friends.  We even got to watch a Steelers game on ... Read more >

"We all live in a yellow submarine!"

JAPAN | Tuesday, 20 Oct 2009 | Views [549] | Comments [2]

While Mama was here, we purchased the latest RockBand game, "RockBand: The Beatles," to provide us with hours of fun and a good way to unwind in the evenings.   For all you who aren't familiar with RockBand, it's a video game where you choose ... Read more >


Rawhide!

Mama and I went out for lunch with Megumi the day before we flew back to PA.  We had a fun time wandering through American Village and ate at "the Depot" for a curry-filled lunch.  Mama had "Prime Rib Curry," I had "Chicken and ... Read more >


Guess where we went!

JAPAN | Tuesday, 20 Oct 2009 | Views [473]

To the Okinawa Aquarium, of course!  We had a lot of fun showing Mama around the Aquarium and taking her to the ever-changing dolphin show (it's always completely in Japanese but we've never seen the same show twice!) When we got back from our trip ... Read more >

Let me explain...

JAPAN | Sunday, 18 Oct 2009 | Views [443] | Comments [2]

To quote "The Princess Bride," "Let me explain.  No, there is too much.  Let me sum up." We've had a very busy, very fun last few weeks.  And we have plenty of photos to prove it!  When we got back to Okinawa from NE, we brought ... Read more >


Bender Wedding

We had a wonderful trip back to Nebraska last week.  It was a whirlwind of a trip - arrived around midnight Wednesday and departed around 7am Sunday morning - but it was well worth it!  We had so much fun with the Carlson (and Jones) family and can't ... Read more >
