Dinner at The Artisan Table

Went to The Artisan Table for dinner. It was a course dinner with a theme of Autumnal Equinox, and Ren ordered wine paring to go with. We don't really know about wine but they had 3 kinds: Annie's Lane Riesling '18 from Australia, Calera Josh Jensen Selection Chardonnay '15 from CA, and d'Arenberg d'Arry's Original Shiraz Grenache '14 from Australia.
The food was beautiful and everything tasty. They have 24 different course menues all though the year. It was a good, quiet, grown up dinner.

Sick Masaki having cream puff with papa at Sawamura
Video of Naoya driving here, and babies driving here.

Masaki had fever since last night. Naoya was fine so after dropping him at preschool, we took Masaki to clinic to see Dr. and got some prescription. Then I met a mom who I used to go to mother's class with, and her son who's same age as Ton who were born around the same time. And he's BIG! Taller than Renfield!
After getting medicine, we went to Sawamura and had break. Masaki took good nap after the break, and woke up before pick up of Naoya at 1pm. Thank you baby!

Ton and Naoya

Video of babies playing on tatami here, and Naoya going crazy here.

BTW, Naoya woke up around 4 yesterday. I gave him water and he said to me 「ママ、これあげる。」"Mama, I'll give it to you." in Japanese clearly! Perfect timing and context...!

Coffee night at school

Went to join the meeting at preschool to meet with teachers and other parents. There are only 6 kids in their class but I'm happy if kids are happy and somebody can take them out to park and play.

These were on the wall, and the bus art is the very first art they did with their feet.

It was an emergency pick up drill at elementary school this morning. I asked papa to join that after this all night training, met with them at American Club for lunch after picking up our membership. Mo left right after his lunch because he was invited to Eimu's birthday party in the afternoon. Ton was enjoying free wifi at the restaurant, while babies were playing at the kids area with trains.
