Visited Yuika's this afternoon. Yesterday was her 1st brirthday. She cries if the other baby comes closer to her, on the other hand, Tonchan so wants to be closer to her. So, every time she approaches, Yuika cries. Tonchan looked very confused, but she kept trying. After 12 of Yuika's cry, they started playing on my stuff in the bag.

Big Tony came over between his trip back to US from China for business, and stayed with us for a couple of nights. Tonchan was happy that he played with her, and she's now watching him iron his jeans.

Went to Muji in Ginza. Had snack at MOS Burger, and she tried my burger. We're such bad parents, feeding kids burger, french fries, let her watch TV, etc....

Since we woke up 5:00 a.m., we went to see him off to work at the station, then continue to walk. Had snack at TSUTAYA in the Hills: not very crowded 8:00 in the morning.

Warm weather

We started the day early, 4:10. Beautiful weather today. 20C/70C, pretty warm for Nov. So, we took walk in the afternoon, then had dinner around 4 pm, then went to bed around 5 pm...

We Are Home!

10 hour flight from SFO to NRT wasn't bad. We took courtesy taxi since we flew business back to home, and went to bed around 5 in the afternoon.

Tonchan woke up 3 in the morning: definitely jet lagged. So, we three woke up and started the early day. Around 3 in the afternoon, Tonchan was sleepy and gave her breast milk, then we both passed out....

Santa Lucia Preserve

We couldn't see very much last night, but Bernardus Lodge is a beautiful hotel. Too bad we stayed only one night, and we don't drink (they had three bottles of wines in the room for us).

K and Z came to pick us up, and we had lunch there. Pretty good food. Tonchan enjoyed her "pomme fret".

The drive to Santa Lucia Preserve in Carmel was crazy. Winding road for about 40 min, then we were lost at the preserve: too large, too much nature, not many landmarks to make turns. Anyhow, we made it to the lodge, had some iced tea with Jen and friends, and had some nap before the BBQ of rehearsal dinner, which was great.

Peter showed up as Clint Eastwood from macaroni Western, and Jen in her mother's wedding dress from 60's. I'm sure it made her mother very happy.

After Tonchan hanging out with the other kids, we asked Coco's family to drive us to the lodge, and went to bed.

Flight to San Jose

Flew from New Ark to San Jose on Thu evening. The flight was fine but we arrived 23:00 for us, waited an hour for the car to pick us up, drove for about 2 hours, then checked in around 2 mid night.... We were so tired and so miserable...
