Last month, we went out bike riding around our neighborhood one weekend. We had no plans, really, but we finally were able to get Miyu’s gym uniforms. Even though the school year is more than halfway finished, I still wanted to get her at least one pair, now that we know where to get it. We ended up parking our bikes at our train station and then going to this random place called Shin-Yurigaoka. I got lost at this train stop about 18 years ago. Ken thought it was funny to visit there. We had a lovely dinner and ice cream (and coffee) afterward.
Then, the next evening, Ken and Miyu cooked Nabe. I discovered that even in clear soup form, my body does not agree with mushrooms of any kind.
Finally, on Halloween, we decided to go to the Enoshima Aquarium. We hadn’t told Miyu that we were going and we just purposely kept telling her we were going to a mall whenever she asked 🙃. The elation on her face and voice when she realized where we had arrived was worth it. It was our second visit ever and it was the most crowded I’d ever seen it. That definitely made me nervous, but we’re okay. Last year, I had bequeathed my Canon G7X to Miyu on her 7th birthday and so she had a blast taking her own photos. We had a lot of fun in general and Miyu got to buy souvenirs for her friends at school.
