5 April 2014 – My fourth “hanami” of the year! h_kira02.gifp_cherryblossom.gifp_cherryblossom.gifp_cherryblossom.gifp_cherryblossom.gifp_cherryblossom.gifp_cherryblossom.gifh_kira02.gif at Showa Kinen Park, a very very big park!

This time was with Yappi and his friends h_heart08.gif

This park is really really big that in order to get to our lunch destination, the open field, we had to walk like more than 30 minutes in the park itself..
There were a few entrance for the park and the entrance that we entered was the furthest one..face3_kao18.gif

Walking towards the open fieldPretty challenging when you have a baby to look after while carrying all the stuffs and while you have a husband who went ahead so far away to take picturesface2_wobbly.gif
*Nah, just at some pointsface2_bleah.gif He will be back to help face2_lovely.gif

Well, we reached the open field,
and never thought it will be this OPENmark3_sign01.gif

The day started very sunny and nice, but suddenly there were hailstones dropping onto our food! face3_kao19.gif


Luckily the sun came back to us after an hour or so w_1_hare.gif

After lunch, we had a walk around the park an_mushi.gif

Little-big-boss loves playing ball nowadays, that he will go all excited and shout out “bo-, bo-” whenever he saw a ball on the street, at the park, or anywhere s_soccer.gifh_shine.gif
(the ball in the pic belonged to someone else though)

Time to go for the animals in the zoo!

This is a very small zoo park which is free of charge, just nice for little babies to explore without being too exhausted h_notes.gif

Though small, though they do not have elephants, giraffes, gorillas, lions, tigers, all those big animals..
they have zebra, monkeys, red pandas, donkey, flamingos, and all the smaller animals an_c_chick.gifan_capricornus.gifan_p_buta.gifan_taurus.gifan_usagi.gifan_c_hiyoko.gifan_capricornus.gifmark3_sign01.gif
