Okinawa has many different rural and urban parts, but where we live is pretty urban. Brian and I both grew up with large yards and easy access to woods, hiking, and exploring, so we miss that sometimes, but we're very thankful for the exact place God has put us. Also, Japan is wonderful about insisting on 'green' spaces in their cities, so we spend a lot of time at amazing parks very close to our house.
But we needed to celebrate the arrival of these awesome gifts with something memorable, so here are a few pics of our New Year's Day adventures...
Of course, the boys donned their coonskin hats as soon as they woke up. :)
When we ended up at the park the boys know, Justin proclaimed it was a miracle! :)
Definitely, lots of fun times had by all... thanks for the awesome gifts Aunt Jessie and Uncle Andy!!!
