Water Play

Zak invited us over today to play in a little pool he set up on their balcony. Anthony likes playing with Gen (who is now almost four years old).

Tight Quarters

The situation lent itself to fun, but not to photography. At one point Zak was out on the balcony with his big camera, asking his three-year-old to not shoot the water gun his way, until he (Zak) realized the futility of it and came back in mumbling something along the lines of “I'm the idiot for thinking it was a good idea to go out there in the first place”.

Zak's younger one provided her own challenges....

Jeffrey, you are the fastest blogger in the East.

BTW, you left Anthony’s shirt and water-gun here. :)

Chiharu-san,
Our kids were naked, too. Jeffrey just didn’t post those pictures!
