Blake in Japan!

Blake has been in Japan now for 3 weeks for work and will be there for a few more. We miss him here, but I know that he is having fun exploring on the weekends. Having spent 3 months there last year, he knows his way around Tokyo pretty good and even has a few great little 'hole-in-the-wall' restaurants he loves to eat at. He has been able to attend the temple several times, spend some time with our good friends, the Connor's, and has even done some hiking. I am sure he will come back with great stories and pictures, as it seems everywhere he goes, he meets people from his past or makes new friends. Nathan is planning on meeting up with Blake in April (when he is finished for the semester at BYU), he served his mission there and is very excited about being able to go back to see his friends.

Hiking at Mt. Mitake with friends from work.

Shopping in the Ginza District of Toyko.

Skyscrappers in the Shinjuku. You can take an elevator to the top floor and see the whole city of Tokyo and Mt. Fuji in the distance. Very Impressive.

Mormon Prom

Our church puts on a prom every year for the youth, so James invited Larisa Clark. He and Jordan Perrone made cakes with messages inside for their dates to ask them. James borrowed this lovely tux from our young men's president (who happend to buy it at DI in Utah). I took it to be cleaned before the dance, and while picking it up a gentleman came into the drycleaners and commented on the tux. He said, "Wow, that looks like the tux I wore to my high school prom!" I told him it probably was the same tux, and then we had a good laugh over it. ?The dance was in Port Orchard, so they had a progressive dinner, then went to the dance, then went back to Clara's for dessert and hot tub. James and Jordan had a great time, and the girls did too!

A little more Aristocats!

Here is another video of Andrew's play. It is actually the begining of the play. Don't anyone feel obligated to watch the whole thing, I am really posting it for Grandma's and Grandpa and Jacki. Though you are always free to watch......Andrew is always amusing!
