Morioka or Bust!

So, a couple of weekends ago, we blasted down to Morioka with the Ruffins and Carvells (aka Deacons and Quatros). We stayed at the 5-star "Super Hotel", ate at only the finest dining establishments, had child care figured out, and had an expert tour guide to direct us to the Morioka Castle site. We also did some shopping and picked up a ball that Micah is enjoying quite a much did it cost again?

If you didn't understand any of that, it is probably because you weren't there...maybe next time we'll get a bigger crowd to go with us. It was really a great time. We definitely had some interesting/challenging moments with all of the kiddos, but it was worth it. I couldn't decide which pictures to post, so I just grabbed a couple real quick to give you a quick look. The cherry blossoms were in full bloom there...about one week ahead of the blossoms here in Misawa.

How cool! We saw the end of a Traditional Japanese wedding...we couldn't resist getting a picture real quick.
