August 29~31

On August 29~31, I went to Ibaraki prefecture with my classmates. We stayed in my friend’s house. He has a dog named Pesuke, it was very cute.

On the first day, we went for a walk between rice fields. My friends enjoyed catching crawfishes.

After that, we enjoyed a barbecue in front of my friend’s house. Meats were very delicious.(*´▽`*) And his mother’s rice balls were delicious, too!

On the second day, we went to Hawaiians which has pool and hot springs. I had planed to go there, but I couldn’t go then, so I was very happy to go. There were water slides, and I tried them. But when I was on the one of them, WATER HORN, my swimming suit didn’t slide well, so I went down with my hand(^o^;)

At night, we congratulate two friends’ birthday (one of the friends is Fumiha!). We made video letters secretly for presents. And we enjoyed eating grapes and playing sparklers. I could take interesting pictures!

On the last day, we went to a restaurant to eat a big parfait, but I couldn’t eat because I felt sick then. That reminds me of my high school days because a restaurant near my high school has “King parfait”!!

I had a good time for three days. I could become closer with my friends!

Today, the Kanto area where I live is hit by a typhoon. It is raining heavily and there is a strong wind. I won’t be able to go out today…

Fumiha celebrated her birthday twice this year! I loved how your photos made your post about your trip to Ibaraki prefecture come alive for me.

Hello, Kotomi.

I'm glad you're continuing to add to your blog. Congratulations!

What beautiful pictures! They really got my attention! It looks like you and your friends had a wonderful time!

The dog is really cute.

What did you do after you caught the crawfish? Did you eat them?

The Hawaiians water park looked like a lot of fun. There are several water parks in Phoenix (yes, water parks in the desert!), but I've never visited any of them.

Please give Fumiha my belated "Happy Birthday" wishes!

The cake with fruit and whipped cream looked really good, and I enjoyed the photo of all of you eating grapes. The parfait also looked really good, and it was ENORMOUS! I've never seen one so big!

I hope there was no damage from the typhoon. Are you able to go outside now?

Best wishes from Arizona!
