Em goes to Japan

I figured I better set a post for tomorrow before Abs did something else I had to blog about.

Last Saturday I took my mom and Em to Denver to fly out on their Japanese adventure.  We stopped to feed the hungry lions, and my mom realized that she had forgotten her purse with their passports, id, tickets, etc.

We drove an hour and a half back, and thankfully my mom had her car and made the return trip and did the extended parking, because it was after 9 pm and I was pooped!  Abs and Junior wouldn't have made it much longer in the car either.

Now Em is safely in Japan, and from the sounds of it having the time of her life.  They immersed themselves in the teen scene the first two days, and have now started their cultural tour of Japan and will even spend 5 days in Okinawa.  I'm totally jealous!

What an amazing experience for her!  I also got some pictures of her eating with chopsticks, and she claims it is her strong fingers from texting that allow her to use them correctly.

I can't wait to hear more about her trip and see all the pictures.  Maybe one day I will make it over there!

Wow! How exciting for her, great memories and experiences. I can't wait till the Spring/Summer as we have orders to Japan, so I look forward to spending those 3 years exploring Japan.

I didn't "forget" it; it was not put back in its place.
