Yesterday, the Gods and Goddesses were smiling upon us and gifted to us glorious weather in which to celebrate the birth of a great nation....and the birth of a great little boy!!
Saturday, the sun was shining....the sky was mostly clear...and a cool breeze kept us from getting too hot. We loaded up in the car and headed over to the military base about an hour and a half away, in Sasebo. On the 4th of July, part of the base is open to anyone and everyone and, as I told the K-Man, "This--is the way many people celebrate in the U.S."
There were so many things going on....games, quizzes, attractions, performances, incredible food and, oh be still my heart, Corona beer. A great day spent Americana-style! We all had a great time. We took many pictures but will save them for another post...soon. Today's post....is about the youngest here at Kamp Kuroiwa.....Mr. Koji.
As part of my mission to get stuff organized, I have been going through file after file on the many photo CDs that I have, looking at old pictures and there are just so many I have saved. I have realized that the full CD disc of pictures of now is the old cardboard box full of loose photos and empty albums of a few years ago--it's just not as messy...or as fun to go through, but that's beside the point.
One of my blogging buds did something that I thought was a great idea and I am going to blatantly steal her idea for this particular post (because it works so well, ya know!). Thanks, Suz!! You know I love ya!!
In honor of Koji's 7th birthday.....
