My younger daughter was sitting on her daddy's back, and reading Japanese letters (Hiragana). She liked that style for her study, so he kept his posture for a while for his daughter😁


One of my favorite thing is, find my daughters' tangled hair in the morning I can't understand what was happened at night, but I certainly combed through her hair before sleepeng... After that, she had her hair cut, and it turns very beaut…


My husband won the bingo prize at his party✌️ That was huge strawberries, and sooooooooo sweeeeeeeet🥰🥰🥰🥰 I wasn't very happy about his absence at home for a whole 1day on holiday (because the party was very far!), but now, I can call it even😁

We saw some plum blossoms blowing. My daughters enjoyed collecting the dropped flowers and buds. Fortunately, there were some low branches, so they tried to smell the flowers, but they said, "Smells nothing!".


We went to the zoo as usual weekend, yesterday. There was still some snow remaining, and my daughters were very pleased to play with the snow! Also, as usual, the main activity at the zoo was not seeing animals, but running & playing at th…
