We picked up the boys early from school on a Friday and informed them we were going on vacation... for 24 hours. :) Thanks to Brian's jar of change, some leftover birthday gift money, and support from our LINKS churches, we were able to have a short but very meaningful and fun get away. :)
So we checked in to our hotel and immediately went to the pool. It was a little cool outside but we had just enough sun to still enjoy ourselves.
We had a wonderful dinner and evening walk on the beach.
The next morning we greatly enjoyed the hotel breakfast buffet (always our favorite part of staying at Japanese hotels... and we were way too busy eating to take any pictures) and spent our last hour in the pool again.
After we checked out we enjoyed a special treat for lunch and then went to a fun nature park we hadn't been to before. Then we made it home in time for supper and church the next day. :)
