This weekend we accomplished more than we have in a long time. Instead of being lazy bums and relaxing on the sofa the entire time we were determined to start getting out and exploring again. I will warn you this post is super picture heavy so hopefully that's your thing.
Saturday Logan woke me up super early but I couldn't drag myself out of the bed. Normally that's fine because it's Saturday but nope not this time....I had to work at 8:45 and let's just say I didn't get think I was gonna make it even close to on time. I don't know how but I made it not only on time, but early! woohoo way to go me!!! I worked until 1 and then we had plans to hop on the train to Tachikawa and explore.
We had no real reason for being there except for we hadn't been before, it was the weekend and we had nothing else to do. My amazing friend Nikita, her husband, Big Logan and my favorite 1 year old (The Handricks) came with us to wander aimlessly around a new city.
As always I took a bunch of pictures of the city becuase that's just what I do. It was like the Times Square of Japan kind of with a little bit of old architecture left over.
Obligatory family photo
After walking around Isaac had his heart set on visiting the BIC Camera store since he has gotten really really into building Gundam and they were supposed to have a huge selection. We were not disappointed. It was 8 stories tall and the 6th floor was Isaac and Logan's heaven. Trains and Gundam galore. Logan was so happy and the entire store noticed.
Once we were done there we took the train home, ate at McDonalds which we don't ever get anymore so it's now a treat hahaha and then headed back home.
Sunday morning was Easter!
When we woke up and the weather was overcast and dreary but I am so glad that we didn't let that deter us. The forecast called for rain but we had plans to go to a Easter celebration at Tama Hills which is a rec area about 45 minutes from the base that is owned by the base. It is a beautiful 500 acre area about 45 minutes away from base that has cabins, a hotel, a golf course, a mini golf course, a paintball course, horse stables, pony rides, a softball field, archery and hiking trains. The base offered a free shuttle to and from which was nice and I was so proud of Logan because he was in such a good mood and so well behaved on the bus and we took excited selfies!
When we got there we didn't know what to expect because some base events are kind of iffy but we were pleasantly surprised.
They had pony rides (Logan was scared and so that was a no go ) and a petting zoo
and they had games
After games and the petting zoo but before the egg hunt we had a little but of time to explore the grounds. We decided that we are definitely going to take a weekend staycation at Tama Hills
Logan did well at the easter egg hunt for his age group and was excited to get some candy
We took the bus back home and Logan and I slept the entire way after our awesome morning/afternoon. We were invited to dinner with the Handricks and another family (I was too busy eating and laughing to remember to take pictures) and Logan was super excited to get more eggs and some yummy cupcakes
I hope that everyone enjoyed their weekend and Easter! Here are the ladies that I am linking up with this Monday
