Normally I would do a baseball post today, but after a 40 minute rain delay Kris pitched one inning and the game was cancelled, ( insert thumbs down emoji here….He will keep his rotation and pitch next Saturday). I figured instead I would do a random post of pictures from the last couple weeks. I take so many photos of our life here, but not all them make it into a blog post, so I thought I would share some of them with you guys!
Kris and I go to this 9 story gaming arcade when we are looking for something fun to do in Hiroshima. We have become a big fan of darts lately, but one day I also tested out the batting cages. Can you imagine the look on some guy’s faces when they saw Kris up at the batting cages? It was pretty funny. I didn’t come in contact with the first 20 pitches but then I got the hang of things…..and couldn’t lift my arms for two days afterwards.
I don’t know if any of you play the phone game “tsum tsum” ( if you don’t, you should) but my Mom and Sister had me hooked when I went home a month ago. Well, a couple weeks ago I saw this and got SO excited. A real life version of the phone game!! It’s awesome and I can’t wait for my mom to get here so we can battle each other.
Sunny days in June are rare, it is considered the rainy season in Japan. On the one sunny day we had I found the best little frozen treat. Kris and I call them frozen balls of goodness haha, but I would explain it kind of like a dreamsicle. It starts with the texture of a popsicle and turns into soft gelato made with real fruit. They are heavenly.
While In Tokyo this past weekend we ventured around the very famous and busy Harajuku area and we found our first real candy store!! I don’t know if Kris and I have ever been so excited, we are gummy fanatics and while the little kiosk in Hiroshima satisfies our craving, finding an entire store was awesome! This area is filled with funky shops, graffiti, thrift stores, and crepe stores galore! It was a very fun atmophere.
When we are in Tokyo we tend to eat a lot of American food because unlike Hiroshima it is everywhere in Tokyo. I like to roam the cute side streets until we find a place that looks good, one night we had burgers, and they were so yummy! ( They were flat and had a black pepper taste to them which made me miss Hi Boy more than I already do)! Also, while In Tokyo, I had a delicious green smoothie ( don’t mind my awful squinty face) AND we went to the Chipotle of Japan called Frijoles. I don’t know if anything can be as great as Chipotle, but it definitely satisfies the craving.
Now that I have made everyone hungry I will switch back to some baseball. Kris was featured in three magazines this month, so I thought I would share a few of the pages. ( If only I would have learned to read Japanese in the past couple months). Also, yesterday at the field I had acupuncture done on my neck and shoulders because they are so tight. These were little microscopic needles that you leave in for a couple days, it doesn’t hurt at all! ( I hope it works!)
Hope you all enjoyed this random post!
