Our favorite freckled boy turned 12 on Saturday! We spent the day at SEGA Joypolis in Osaka with his two best friends, and, after striking out at both a Brazilian and a Mexican restaurant, settled on tonkatsu for his birthday dinner. It was the first birthday in a long time that featured no Legos from us, although one of his friends gave him some, so it wasn't a completely Legoless birthday.
Sunday we celebrated with his favorite ice cream birthday cake.
Bear is a joy to have in our family. He's growing up fast!
