Lake Towada and Oirase Gorge

Yeah! We are going back to the States for a visit soon. It has been too long. We have been in Japan since 2006. It will be nice to see everyone and introduce the twins to them. Just pray for us on the plane ride with 2 toddlers! lol

I have been taking so many photos lately. On Sunday, we went to Aomori, Japan. It is about an hour and a half away, so not bad at all. We went to a beautiful place called Oirase Gorge. There are tons of waterfalls there and trails to hike. It was a little difficult with the twins, but we managed. We also visited Lake Towada. It was great to get out of the local area. I love to explore Japan!!

Here are some photos.

Life is so Busy

Wow, I have gotten so behind on posting. Since the kids are out of school I am so busy trying to keep them busy. It has rained here almost everyday this month. For the past 4 days, no rain..keep my fingers crossed. I am enjoying the nice weather. The highest temperature is around the low 80's. We are headed to the States next week for a visit. I hear the weather is VERY hot there so it will be a shock to our systems. We will be there for 45 days. My mother-in-law bought all of us tickets to go to Disneyland while we are there. The kids are so excited. I haven't seen my parents in 4 years, so it will be nice to catch up.

The kids and I have been going all around lately. Coral and I got to go to a park last weekend and take photos. It was so nice to just be with her. I hardly ever get a chance to be with my kids one on one anymore. I am always with all of them. I need to spend more one on one time with each of them.

Anyway, enough rambling, here are some photos I have taken recently. I am pleased with my progress. I notice that my photos are looking better lately. I finally got my Sigma 50mm f1.4 and I really like it. I am still getting used to it though. My camera usually tells me the picture is underexposed when it is overexposed in manual mode, so I will have to learn to read for that particular lens.
