A little latte break with Naoya
I'm so sleepy from the medicine and the caffeine doesn't work on me now. Babies still have a bit of runny nose and cough going. This cold is really hard to shake off...

 Naoya and Lisa
 Masaki and Sara
We met up with Lisa & Sara, and went to check out cherry blossom at Aoyama cemetery. Babies fell asleep and obviously didn't care much about the flowers, though they did enjoy bread and sandwiches at Viking Bakery. Then we walked to Midtown, checked out more cherry blossom with crowds, and people having party under the trees at park.

We walked to Aoyama cemetery to check out cherry blossom. It was not in full bloom yet but it should be in a day or two. Kazuko baba came, too. Then we went to Midtown and had lunch at park under cherry blossoms.

 Sick Masaki fell asleep after visit at clinic
 Poor Masaki
A video of Naoya playing at kitchen here.
Masaki's rash was gone but I took babies to see Dr. She said it was probably because he got weak from getting cold. We got medicine for runny nose and cough.

Masaki had a slight fever, 37.4C, and had some rash. It happened on Sep 17 last year. Now both Masaki and Naoya started coughing hard, I guess I have to take them to see Dr. tomorrow to get some med.

It rained today so we stayed home. Babies caught cold they have runny nose, which bothered them sleeping. Naoya didn't have nap at all, Masaki had a long one, which I guess he needed.

Babies woke up 5:20! So we left home earlier than usual, and I had my breakfast at The City Bakery while they were napping. It's been long since we came last and the menu were a bit different from last time I remembered.... Naoya is getting better on walking, and Masaki started walking backwards and tiptoe these days.

Mo's scone project

 Mo made scone for gifts to those girls who gave him chocolates on Valentine's Day last month. Ton was supervising him, and he did the most of the job after using cookie cutter to shape scones. He even made some for his homeroom teacher and it made her super surprised and happy. Good job!

 Use cookie cutter...

Naoya woke up 4:30 this morning, and Masaki was woken up at 5:30, so we started early this morning. As soon as we walked out, Naoya fell asleep, and Masaki and I had a snack break at cafe.

Dean & Deluca's pistachio cream

 It's very pistachio!
They had this nuts cream on sample, and I couldn't stop eating... It's pricy but pistachio lovers would not regret it!

Viking Bakery, Nogizaka

 Water dripper

 Plane loaf

Chocolate bread, green tea&white chocolate bread, and plane one
Walked to Nogizaka, and went to check out Viking Bakery. Luckily they had only one step and the door was big enough for the stroller. And Masaki was asleep I shared sandwich with Naoya, along with my coffee. Kids loved bread from the shop. It's a keeper!
