Letting Up

Last weekend we left Ella with a sitter for the first time and headed into the city to see a show. Finally! Amazingly enough an old friend from high school, Kent, was traveling through Japan on tour with his band, Letting Up Despite Great Faults. Going to see them was a no-brainer. How often does that happen in your life? It only helps that they are a talented group. So, if you ever see them on the set list of your local music festival don't turn your head, you will pleasantly surprised!

Cute DJ girls.

Surprisingly enough, Kent looks identical to my brother, Nathan, beard and it weird that I never recognized that?

Sakura (cherry blossoms) 2011

This year's cherry blossom experience was much more low key. Rather then following them up and down the Shinkansen line like [last year] we just patiently waited for them to bloom here in Yokosuka. They finally made their debut around the first of April!

...and just like that, two weeks later they were gone.
