Today we went to the Japanese New Year celebration at Bayview Park. It was put on by the Japan Club at UWF. Matsuriza Drums is a fantastic drum group from Tokyo. They were great! I took a short video of them, didn't get the best parts though cause I was too busy watching.
Aaron, Brandon and Tori had their names done in Japanese Calligraphy. I still get impressed when Aaron reads Japanese. It all looks like artwork to me. They also got to dress in kimonos.
Last we had to go to the big oak outside of the community center. The kids have played in this oak for years. There used to be a big branch they could all sit on but Ivan knocked it down. The tree is still standing. We thought a pic of it might entice Ren and family and whoever else wants to come, into a visit to P'cola!
