More Cake!

I just noticed that there has been cake in all of our posts recently--so now, more cake! March 3rd was Girls' Day in Japan, so since there are girls in our household, we received some sweets from our landlord and students to wish us good luck and health.

Fun! I always love Girls' Day, because the stores decorate really well and always have big displays of pink--strawberries, candy, cakes, etc. They also blast the Hinamatsuri song everywhere, which I personally think is kind of creepy dark music, but I'm sure the lyrics are nice.
On a side note, we sometimes take walks to main downtown Kanonji, where there are several shops and the post office. The street lamps all have speakers attached to them, and they are usually blasting really cheesy English songs from the 70s. I think it is so funny--like who is in charge of the music here?

This week, we have all been sick, too. Fox and the kiddos have decided to be polite and wear the customary sick masks:

I haven't worn one--tsk tsk! Maybe if I found one in pink?
