We're back from our mini trip to near Ise, in Mie prefecture, about three to four hours away by car. It was a wonderful little trip.

We stayed at a large but traditional ryokan at the water's edge (map). The picture above is Anthony, wearing a yukata, sitting on the tatami floor of our room, looking at a book.

Sometimes I can't get over how cute he is. Hmmm, perhaps I'm biased....

Well, Daddy, you aren’t the only one who can’t get over how cute he is. Those were the very words I was thinking as I first looked at that picture. In fact, I believe this is the first time I can remember seeing him in what I thought was a kimono. It is a very expressive photo. Well done, son. I used to think the same thing about you, and truth be told, I still do. But I’m allowed. Love, Mom

You sure are biased, but he really is cute.

Oh, what would I give for having had a dad that is like you!!!!! Your son is so lucky (as is mine).
