the saitama aquarium

happy father's day to all the dads out there!
yesterday rose and i went on a father's day date to the saitama aquarium. it's about a half hours drive away and it's dedicated to the fresh water fish that can be found in the rivers and lakes throughout the area.
the most important thing is that most of the fish make rose smile. the rest make her jump into your arms squealing, 'scary, scary!!'
one of her most favorite things that she did there was feed the carp and catfish in the ponds surrounding the outside of the aquarium.
it was the best i could ever have asked...
except, maybe, for a rod and some bait to catch those fish! haha!!

serious business

i took this photo a little while ago, but i think it illustrates the diligence of the japanese. even working at noodle restaurant they have their morning meetings. out in front of the restaurant no less! in almost all businesses these types of meetings are a must in japan.
it reminds me of the summer that i worked part-time at walmart and how there was morning everyday there too. that mostly consisted of the manager hootin' and a hollerin' about the customers with a big half hearted cheer from the rest of us at the end...
anyway, for me morning meetings are a drag anywhere im the world!
