check this place out!!

my oh my.  I don't think I've blogged about the fact that we are moving to JAPAN.   I can't even believe it.  I am so excited I might die before the move happens.  One of our TOP reasons for joining the Air Force was so that we could have amazing opportunities to SEE THE WORLD!!   and ready or not- here we go.

We did A LOT of research on the surrounding areas of our top picks before we submitted our list.  And obviously- now we've done even more on the Tokyo area.  There is so much to see and do!!  There is so much to get excited about that I may burst.  Here are just a few of the reasons we can't wait!!

1. tokyo disneySEA.  apparently this place is more amazing than anything you've ever seen!!   it's not just a little waterpark- it's DisneySEA! plus- tokoyo disneyland itself sounds pretty fun

3.  the FOOD!!!  For Christmas I bought Kent and myself a sushi making class.  It hasn't happened yet- but will be even more fun now that we are going to JAPAN!!  kent loves sushi and sashimi and the like.  I am learning.   There will be plenty of opportunities for us to try lots of new foods and 'mature our palates'- I'm sure.  I already found a fabulous Brazilian restaurant in Tokyo, too.

3. mt. fuji.  You can see the mountain from base!  kent and I can't wait to hike it!  how amazing to be able to say we climbed mt. Fuji?    Plus- the japanese architecture and cherry blossoms are going to be pretty great.  I'm so excited to take pictures of EVERYTHING.

we'd REALLY REALLY love visitors!  I will NEED them, in fact!   We will be living on base- so we will have a lot of the comforts of 'home'. And there is a pretty decent sized ward (Mormon church congregation) on base- and I am so grateful for that!  It is pretty amazing that I can find an instant church family wherever on Earth we move! I'm sure I'll have playgroups, running partners, and great friends right away.  But even with all of those comforts- I WANT VISITORS!!

It is Kenny's dream to visit Japan. We just might take you up on the visitors offer! We're so jealous. Have a great adventure. Your children are going to be celebrities you know that right?!
