Then we went back to my house and had dinner, cake and half cupcakes for N2 since it was their 1/2 birthday!

Japanese Festival-Botanic Gardens
To celebrate my birthday, we went to the Botanic Gardens for their Japanese Festival. They had a storyteller, kyoto drum performance, a tea ceremony and a harp player. They also had activities for kids-a kite craft, a fan craft, a play sushi set with learner chopsticks, Origami, zen gardens, and a station for writing Japanese characters. The kids really sat and listened intently to the storyteller for about 20 minutes or so-we had to excuse ourselves after about 25 minutes to go do the crafts.
Mom had to play dress up and imaginary play while dinner was cooking.
