Tuesday morning I dropped Peggy and Jill off at the Iwakuni airport a mere 5 minutes after we left the mid-rise. It is THAT close. The two weeks they were here went by incredibly fast, but we managed to pack in a lot of stuff, as you can see by the blog and Facebook posts. Here are a few photos that I hadn't had a chance to post yet.
Aunt Jill helped Xan make a Valentine Box for his class party next week. It was quite the masterpiece!
Saturday was a day out on the town... of Yanai, which is where Mister Max is, a Japanese equivalent to Wal-mart. Inside is a McDonalds, which is where we ate lunch. Everyone agreed that it tasted the same, but that the portions, especially the drinks, were smaller. In America the largest McNugget order you can get is 20 pieces. In Japan it is 15.
|Because everything is bigger in America... especially Texas.|
Checking out the Japanese refrigerators, which are tall and skinny.
Saturday night was meat-on-a-stick restaurant night. It is actually called Hakkenden,but Americans call it "The meat-on-a-stick place." Peggy is eating the teriyaki chicken.
