today i took the kids to the aquarium, as a last trip before hiro starts school. we had a lot of fun.

then i drove all the way to kitakyushu, to go to a halloween party at kuri's place. we had a LOT of fun there, too. but now we're all exhausted (thank goodness children are sleeping) so here are a few pictures, and goodnight.

(kuri, i will send some pictures tomorrow!)
