Family fun in Japan
Papa works in another town so only comes home on Saturday or Sunday and heads back again Monday mornings. He is a quiet man, but after the night came up to me and said how special it was to him.
'Yakitori' is pretty much chicken skewers. We cooked up capsicum, mushrooms, carrot, beans, cabbage (severely underated in Australia) and had sides of salad, cream cheese and chilly sauce (my influence) and flour tortillas for wrapping the food in (also my influence:p).
Trying to be healthy I stuck to a lot of salad and vegies. The skewers tend to be layered with fat..the Japanese love it, but it freaks me out haha. Spanish wine mama bought from an international store. Was fruity but not too sweet:)
We were all high on fun family times and started taking sill photos.
Photo below is titled "looking out into the future". Mama said it was like a poster for North Korea.
We took so many and all laughed until we cried!!

Mama and papa were able to drink together, gossip and joke, and spend time with their kids that didn't involve homework, driving to sports or dragging them out of bed. A night well spent.
