Playing with snow at park and break afterwords



After a vote for Tokyo governor, we went on to Arisugawa park where still had lots of snow. Kids somehow started snow ball fight with a couple of other British dads there, luckily they didn't mind my kids slowing snow balls at them constantly, found an igloo somebody built, making snowmen, etc. Spent about a couple of hours, then one of Ton's class mates showed up. They played a little with snow, then we moved on to a cafe to have a break. Mo enjoyed mom's cafe latte, while his sister was playing a card game with her friend.

Cookies with carob chips

Tried carob chips instead of the real chocolate chips. It doesn't taste different to us, and off course kids thought those were choco chip cookies.
