So there's this new thing called "Shopping" that Mommy has been telling me about. We took Daddy with us and showed him what it's all about.
Here I am with Daddy after getting some new shoes from the GAP.
I get to hold the bag.

I was thinking about getting these glasses but I rather go to college for the same price.

I was kind of liking this hat but I didn't really grow on me. I'll sleep on it and see if I want it tomorrow.

Not a bad stash for today. There's always tomorrow at the MALL.

'Tis a very bright day, isn't it?

Here I am with my friends, but I'm not in a friendly mood. I didn't really appreciate the cold, blue water coming over me, but who would.

I'm in a better mood, now that I've got my groove back!!!

Hmmm.....something's changed here.

Here we are at the BRIDGE USA festival in Torrance. It was busy, hot, and hot.

It was hard to see all of the festivites so Daddy put me on his shoulders. I had to adjust to the altitude since Daddy is sooo tall.

My friend Marina showed up and brought her Mommy with her.

We compared french tip manicures and caught up on old times. It was hilarious.

Here I am holding a stuffed teddy bear Daddy won for me from a shooting game.
2 out of 7 ain't bad Daddy.

Mommy, Daddy, Auntie Tiffy, and I went to the Japanese American Museum to see the art of Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda. I think his conversational rap and devastating lyrics are awesome. Also, Mike is community oriented and mindful of his Japanese heritage.

This is Mike.

This is me and not Mike. Weird huh? Auntie Tiffy made me a Linkin Park Underground t-shirt. When we met Mike he shook my hand and saw my shirt.

Something's not right....

I'm enjoying the pool in this awesome floating device!

Just chilling in the water...loving the shades on this thingy.

My friends came out of the jacuzzi which had lots and lots of bubbles.

He was helping me get used to the water. His little sister (in the back with their mom) was younger than me, but already enjoying the pool. I HAD to grow up and showed her I'm fine with water now.

Best of all, it's good to have friends to go in the pool with.

Baby Shower

We went to the Baby Shower for Aunt Kazumi and Uncle Aaron.

Being with the beautiful Mother-to-be...

I'm chewing on ice again.

A moment with Sophia (I'm talking about the dog, not where my Grandpa Yuji went for college).

Say what? You really shouldn't talk with your mouth full!

Fourth of July


I tried taking a picture myself...pretty good for a first-timer, no?

Today, I went to my very first "Industry" BBQ party. I was the only child, as you can see in this picture.

I'm chewing on ice for the first time. 'twas soooooo refreshing in the hot valley wheather!

It was rather nice to be considered as one of the adults, but I feel much more comfortable with someone close to my age.

I yearn for one of these...when am I allowed to eat Grandpa's delicious Custard Pie? Hopefully, very very soon!!
