Tokyo by storm!

So, we spent 3 days, 2 nights in Tokyo. We gave YaYa, PoPo, and Sister the whirlwind Tokyo Tour Weenie style! We tried to see as many things as possible, but YaYa slowed us down. As you know, YaYa has had a hip replacement and needs another one. She has trouble going up stairs and hills, so we had to walk REALLY freakin' slow for her. We knew she would be slow but not THAT slow. At one point during the trip, Jude screamed out, "YaYa needs wheels...that way she can go faster!"

So, we did the best we could.

In addition to YaYa being slow, PoPo and Sister require mass quantities of food to keep their dynamic systems functioning. So, we ate and ate and ate! Typically, Husband and I will get rice balls or small sandwiches while we are out and about, but that was not sufficient for PoPo and Sister. They required wholesome, large meals 3 times a day...something we are not accustomed to. So, needless to say, I felt the need to indulge with them, and now my pants are tight and my ass is fatter. WHATEVER!

Jude enjoyed spending time with his grandparents and aunt. We created fabulous memories that he will cherish forever.

So, over all our trip was slow and fattening, but enjoyable. I'm glad we got to share Tokyo with our family.
