Pizza in the Sky and the aquarium!

I had to include a picture of Adrienne at the laundry mat :) Good times!

So we went to Pizza in the Sky (english translation of course) and the aquarium on Saturday. It was a really beautiful day - it didn't even rain! It was a little hot, but we had a good time. We went for lunch the menu was a crack up - Pizza, salad (no choices, just yes or no) The view was awesome! The company was fun - we had a good time just hanging out and chatting.

At the Aquarium Eric (Laura's husband) got a coconut drink - they picked it up out of the pile, cut the top off and handed it to him - it was pretty funny!
The view from the Pizza in the Sky - WOW!

Adrienne, Rachel, and Laura and I at Pizza in the Sky - also called Pizza and Sky

Ok, so the Japanese are quite smart and have child size toilet seats attached to the regular, I don't have a toilet obsession either...but I had never seen anything like it...

I can't believe where I live...stunning!
Baby sea turtles, I suggested that it would be fun to bring them home with us and they could live in the shower room...Adrienne said no :(
So I like topiaries...but the Japanese do them so much better than America does - although they have individual plants instead of one big one...but very cool.
Dolphins waving goodbye at the dolphin show - they bowed too...which is so much more entertaining here - so much more cultural....they do tend to poke fun at themselves which makes it even funnier.

The dolphin bumped his head and Adrienne made fun of him saying he had a little trouble...anyway, he got up and promptly stuck his tongue out...I laughed hysterically saying that showed her!
The trainer was splashing the dolphin and he would "splash" back really it was spitting, but entertaining nonetheless!

Off to another week - I know this was a little less wordy for me but I'm a little tired.

Oh my pick me up moments for the weekend:
Skype calls (LD ladies, Kevin) phone calls with Kim and Tash
yummy tacos
my hair is being agreeable
Speed grocery shopping - we actually know where things are now!

Alison, it sounds like this weekend was an answer to pray! After all the challenges of the week, I'm glad you got some time to enjoy the sunshine, awesome views, and calls with friends. I know you've said that the weather has been bad for your hair, but in these photos you look great! Hope you have many more weekends like this one :)
