Japan 2013 - Days 1,2, and 3

Oh Japan. It's weird to look back on an event that we planned and looked forward to since March. This was our very first trip that required Blee to be on a plane, and it was for a ridiculously long time. 11+ hours of sitting on a crammed airplane, full of people who's worst nightmare is to sit in a confined place with a screaming 2 year old.

I stressed out like no other for this trip. I basically had 2 plans.
1) drug the kid up
2) act like he's not my child

No. In all seriousness, I prayed and prayed that Blee would be decent. Acceptable.

And thankfully, he was. More than acceptable.

As soon as we landed, we took the airport shuttle and headed for my parent's hometown. 3 hour bus ride after a long, long plane ride. This kid was beat.

For the next 2 days, we hung out with my cousins and my aunt and uncle. I tried to figure out what they would be from Blee's standpoint, but quickly gave up. Great aunt and great uncle? Second cousins? Whatever. We all had an awesome time.

Blee quickly got attached to my cousin's 8 year old son. They were inseparable.

Thanks so much for playing with us!

Next up...Oomiya Railway Museum
