Fortunately, I got three presents from my family on Father’s Day.
This is a soup set which my wife gave me. There are ten kinds of soup such as shrimp, onion and so on.
The shop is a popular restaurant chain which serves only soup.
These are origamis which my youngest daugter gave me.
There are a dog, a bear and an elephant.
My youngest daugher gave me the first letter at that day.
It says, “Thank you dad. I’m looking forward to cerebrating Father’s Day.”
My oldest daughter gave me this letter.
“Thank you so much, dad. It’s only you who take us to many places on weekends. Please come home as early as possible.
Let’s play together. I love you.”
I’m really happy to get these precious presents.
Happy Father’s Day to all.
This is an interesting picture which we found at the cup noodle museum.
The inventor, 安藤 百福（Ando Momohuku）, gave six points to think of a new idea.
1 You need to discover something which no one has found.
2 Anything can be a hint to good idea.
3 You grow your idea.
4 You see the thing from all directions. ( vertical, horizontal and slanting. )
５ You keep aloof from common sense.
６ You don’t give up.
I thinks that “3 You grow your idea” is important because I often lose my ideas and dissapear good ideas.
I planted these vegetables in our garden last month.
They are balsam pears, egg plants and mini-tomatoes
We have already gotten some tomatoes maybe because this is very good seeding.
We think that we’ll be able to get tons of tomatoes from these three seedings
This is the eggplant It’ll become quite large soon.
These are the balsam pears which taste bitter.
I like them but my family doesn’t like them
The plant has another merit. It shades our house during the hot summer.
We call it green curtain We’re looking forward to seeing it
We enjoyed the largest trampoline in Japan the other day.
It’s located in Shinrin Park 森林公園 which I shared last week.
You need to take off your shoes before you jump on it
There are large and small ones
This is my youngest daughter who is keen on it.
You can jump very high thanks to the rugged cover of the trampoline
(although I felt a little sick because of the quake.)
I wonder how many people can jump on it at the same time.
It’s time to gather fruits of juneberry in our garden.
My daughters love to gather them together.
Birds ate some of them but have left most of them for us.
We could get over 400 grams from just one tree.
After we gather the juneberry fruits, we need to tim the branches to protect our tree from insects that attack it to feed on it, like green caterpillars.
We boiled the fruits after adding some sugar and lemon.It’s important to strain them to remove seeds.
This is the jam which we have just finished making.The taste is perfect although it is a bit sour.
We could be able to sell the jam if there were many trees.
I found some unfamiliar signs when I stayed in Finland and Holland.
Since I can’t read Finish and Dutch, I just imagined what the signs say.
“Watch out. Squirrel is coming.”
“You can’t eat and touch this poisonus plant.”
“You can’t drink alchol at this area.”
“You can enjoy skate at this route. “
“A dog can walk this path unleashed.”
I hope that this guess is correct.
May and June, as well as autumn are good times for cycling around Tokyo.
The green is very beautiful and it’s not too hot yet.
You can rent a bicycle both for adults and kids in this large park. 森林公園
The paths aren’t so steep that it’s easy to ride a bicycle for a long distance like Holland.
There is also a beautiful lake. That’s nice to rest here while you eat snack.
We found unique flowers called lupinus.
It’s interesting that the flowers is the pulse family.
羽生水郷公園 has a small aquarium which displays only fish from the river in the park.
My daughters love petting fish outdoor.
There are grass carps, American catfish, blue fish and carps in this pond.
You can buy food for the fish for 50 yen.
Many large fish gathered around my daughters.
In addition, my daughters were able to catch a turtle for the first time. Playing with fish is more interesting than only seeing them.
My family and I visited the earth obsevation center in Saitama prefecture.
It’s a research laboratory but you can tour the building freely.
The large parabolic satellite antenna in the center gets various kinds of information from artificial satelites.
You can see the miniature of the artificial satelites in the exhibition room.
There is also a golden one.
My daughters enjoyed driving the artificial satelites inside the room.
The artificial satelites show us how a typhoon moves and how the ice of the north pole changes.
There are many photos taken by them.
For example, there is a photo of Ayers Rock in Australia.
It’s amazing to know how the earth is.
My family and I visited “Hanyu Suigo Park” during Golden Week.
(Golden Week is a special holidays in May. )
It took two hours for us to get there by car.
There is a beautiful lake which has a wooden path.
We found frog eggs and many fish in the lake.
There is also a beautiful flower field in which my children could ran through. Since the park is very large, it has an aquarium. I’ll share it soon.
Frotunately, the weather has been good almost every day this season.
