last sunday we went to the city to the fukuoka city museum. i think. it's all kinda fading now. yoshi had tickets to the current uh...whatchamacallit (dang, i think it's time to break out the ginko balboa or whatever, i am SERIOUSLY losing my memory. english be damned!) you know, art on display by one artist. don't hate me because i don't know who it was. not that i forgot (which would be totally the case if i knew who it was in the first place), it was someone i don't know, someone japanese and apparently someone who loves to draw nature, mainly flowers and bugs and then sometimes faeries. very pretty, quite realistic and i think he mainly works in ink. the kids, however, were less than impressed. hiro wasn't feeling well and we actually asked to borrow a stroller for him. he fell asleep by the time we went through! tommy wanted to run around and be obnoxious (SO much fun) and actually got told off for it. hey, i was pushing the stroller! and most of the art was too high on the walls for the kids to see it anwyay, so i would say the trip to the museum was a bust. but hey, at least we didn't have to pay.
afterward we should have gone home but we were that far anyway and it was raining, so we went to hawks town. we got our stroller out for hiro and had a bit of a walk around. first we got the kids 100 yen ice creams at mickey d's and then yoshi checked out a gadget shop. before we left we went to HRC for nachos, which we all inhaled (even hiro) and then it was back to the car for the trip home.
a somewhat lovely family outing, which didn't cost *too* much....
