In about 20 minutes, we’ll be off for a mini-vacation to the happiest place on earth. It is so strange to live in a place where there is Disneyland. I don’t think I’ll ever get over that as long as we live here. There are a lot of things that are surreal about living here actually, even after 5 whole years.
It’s all of us+ Claire’s best friend Lydia, who is leaving Japan to move to Spain in about 2 months and with whom we’re trying to make as many happy memories as possible lately. Is that going to make it better or worse for Claire when Lydia leaves?
Oh, would you like to know one of the slight disadvantages of having a LOT of kids in your party? Hotels don’t want that much party in ONE room! I had to “negotiate” with the manager to allow the hotel to squeeze us all into the King Suite (with a baby bed for Ben and a cot for Adam).
Anyway, we’ll be back in a couple days with oogles and bunches of Disney-loving photos.
