Singing About Car Crashes

So, there’s a song about a fish/octopus/tuna/shark/whale where each creature is eaten by the next biggest one. The kids are less obsessed about fish than they are about things the have wheels, so I modified the words a bit.

A motorcycle, a motorcycle, driving down the freeway
A motorcycle, a motorcycle
Crash, crash, crash
Oh No, it’s been smooshed by a
Garbage truck….
18 Wheeler….Honk Honk, Pardon me!

There’s also hand gestures. Morbid I know, but they love it.

Anyway, Auntie Jessie and Tori taught the boys knuckles which they’ve taken a liking to. This is what happens when the two collide in a post-dinner show.

Japan Photos, Part 2

33 more photos from our Japan trip have been added to the photo gallery. Day 3 was a busy day, hitting the fish market in the morning, going to a sumo tournament and the Edo-Tokyo Museum next door, a trip to Harajuku then back to Roppongi for dinner with friends. This batch starts on page 3. Stay tuned for more…

Japan Photos, Part 1

Instead of going through the somewhat tedious process of working through the hundreds of photos from Japan then posting them, I’ll be uploading them in chunks instead for a change. There’s a short trip diary in the works as well.

Here are the first 41 photos, which we’ll append future uploads to. And the requisite teasers:
