Sakura in the neighborhood / 近所のサクラ Apr. 24

Nice weather again!

Actually it rained in the evening but it was perfect in the morning.

I didn't have to work early today so we took a long walk in the morning!

朝から天気いい〜!!!

夕方から雨が降ったけど 朝はパーフェクト。

今日は夕方から仕事だったから 朝はちょいと長い散歩へ。

Cherry blossom in our neighborhood is blooming now:)))

Hmmm....very photogenic, you guys!

Look at their smug faces.  Smile you two!!!

近所のサクラも咲いてきた〜!!

そして なんだろう・・・この2人の このドヤ顔・・・。

笑え!(¬_¬)

Mato                                                   Kaiya



Kaiya who knew we were close to the woods didn't wanna go home unless we went to the woods first.  Well, I wasn't in a hurry anyways.  Why not, right?

いつもの森の近くまできてることがわかってるKaiyaさん 森に行かないと帰らないと言うので 寄ってきました。

They definitely had fun running in the woods.

Time to drink water and running straight down to the lake ;)

走って遊んで そのまま湖までゴー!

Unfortunately mommy got super hungry and we had to go home right a way after this although these two wanted to stay here little longer ;p

めちゃめちゃお腹が空いたマミーが帰りたがったので しょうがなくマミーについて帰路についた2人でした〜。

Sakura / サクラ Apr. 23

I've heard that the cherry blossom bloomed so we went to Kungsträdgården, Stockholm's best sakura sights, this afternoon.

Yes, it's beautiful!!!

Nothing has bloomed in our neighborhood but it's early here in the middle of the town.

It was little chilly but the sun was out and I think it was the best day to come here and see the stunning sakura!

どうやらサクラが咲いたって風の噂で聞いたので ストックホルムのサクラの名所 Kungsträdgården(クングストレッドゴーデン)へ みんなで行ってきましたぁ!

咲いてたぁ〜!!!

うちの近所はまだ咲いてなかったけど 街の中心のここはこんなに咲いてた!

ちょっと肌寒かったけど 太陽が出ていい天気でちょうどいい日に来れた(o^^o)

        Kaiya                      Mommy                    Mato
I asked daddy to take photos and this happens...no sakura included. lol
ダディにカメラお願いしたら サクラ入ってねー(笑)



Kaiya and Mato were...

KaiyaとMatoはというと・・・。

      Kaiya        Mato



Kaiya, first of all, does not like crowds.  She was trembling whole the time.

She looks like smiling in the photos but that's because she was nervous, breathing hard and her tongue was sticking out.

人がたくさんいるところが苦手なKaiyaは 常にガクブル。

笑顔のように見えるけど 緊張で舌を出して息が荒いからです(^^;)

Kaiya

Kaiya



Mato, on the other hand, doesn't care about the crowds and he was being him. :)

Actually he wanted to chase after doves than look at the sakura. lol

Matoは人混みとか全然気にならない子。

花より鳩を追っかけたくてしかたなかったけど(笑)

Kaiya             Mato

Mato says "Mommy, this doesn't look like I can eat.  I don't want it."

Mato曰く "マミー これ食べれないから いらない" だそうです。

Mato



Too nervous to care about what she got on her head. lol

されるがままKaiya(笑)

Perfect morning walk / 森あさんぽ日和 Apr. 22

It seemed like a perfect sunny day to go and take a walk in the woods today when we woke up :)))

And it was a perfect place for them to run and have fun!!!

なかなか天気のいい朝だったので 朝の散歩は森へ!

今日は走るねぇ〜!

絵になるねぇ〜( ^ω^ )

Somehow

どうしても

Mato            Kaiya



they don't wanna look at me at the same time.

2人一緒にこっち見てくれない。

Mato             Kaiya



But they do turn their heads to the side at the same time :p

横は向くのに。

Mato                   Kaiya

          Kaiya          Mato

                  Kaiya                    Mato



Mato suddenly got excited.  He stimulated Kaiya into chasing.

急にMatoが誘って 追いかけっこ開始!

                   Mato           Kaiya

        Mato                  Kaiya




They ran too far away from me that I couldn't take good photos.

崖の下の方ばっかり走るから 遠くてなかなかいい写真が撮れないじゃ〜ん!!




After all the running, we went down to the lake.

よく運動した後は 水辺で穴掘り。

Kaiya



Once Kaiya starts digging here, she never stops.

ここで穴掘りを始めると止まらないKaiya。

Kaiya


Mato was busy doing different stuff, digging, chewing a stick, going into the water, etc.

Matoは穴掘りして見たり 棒をガリガリしたり 水の中にちょいと入って見たり。

 Kaiya also went into the water a little.

Kaiyaもちょっと水の中入ったよぉ〜。
