Holy Moly, Batman...I missed a day and the guilt is immense!!

I really can't believe I did that!!! Yesterday, we spent the day out as a "family outing" kind of day and by the time we got home, got dinner, baths and ready for bed.....I was knackered!! Was all snug as a bug in a rug in my futon when I realized I had forgotten to post anything!!! Oh well...will do something quickly this morning before I have to get "little one" up and ready to go!!!

Oh...and by the way...in case you haven't noticed....the "Februarie Blogging Challenge" picture is gone...or not really gone, just moved down a bit!!!. We are done. Finished. It's over. (sniff sniff) And now, my friends, you are reading an "Award Winning Blog".....no.no.no...I didn't WIN the challenge, BUT, I did get the 2nd prize. I had 31 posts for the month of February....some little high school chickee (Hi, Taylor!!!) posted every day and got the big prize!! Okay..Okay...so I'll take the second prize...which is some chocolate...which I am already waiting patiently (tap tap tap tap) for!! Thanks again, to Gina for doing this!! It was such a fun thing to do!!!

Okay....so I had the K-man take a good picture of our ume tree (that I posted about on Saturday). It really is a cool tree. If you click on the picture you can get a better view....check out the trunk. Issei says that if you look at really carefully.....it looks like a dragon!!! Very cool!!



Yesterday...we took the boys to a Ninja-themed village. If you ask Koji, he wants to be a ninja and gosh, why not just feed into that, huh? This place is actually quite old...the K-man said he went a looooooooonnnnggg time ago with his parents when he was in high school!! There were lots of old buildings...ninja-type things to do...which Koji just loved!!! And so many picture opportunities!!! I'll post more later but...here is one of my favorites:

Now this...is the way it should be!!!

This was taken in the rest area on the way to the ninja village. At this particular point, we were almost at the same latitude as Charleston and Baghdad (there was a sign that said so!!!) It was a beautiful day!!! We have so many pictures that have been taken at this exact place....the view is spectacular!!

And finally....one of my favorite pictures of the day....as we were inching along in traffic, I noticed this building. I have no idea as to what kind of business it is....but what a great name!!! They're just telling you like it is!!

I'm getting the chocolate in the mail right away because I'm afraid you might send ninjas after me if I don't!
