I had an awesome weekend with my family, beginning with a late birthday party for my cousin Jeremie Friday evening.

My mother, siblings and their spouses, aunts, cousins, and grandparents met at Hokkaido for dinner. We sat at a grill, of course.  We love going for Japanese!

We always have such a good time together, wherever we are.

Towards the end of our meal (I'm sure you can tell by now that I ended up taking my food home), my niece wanted to show me that she could use chopsticks.  I edited out the part where she used both of her hands so that no evidence of that fact exists, just in case she wants to brag to her friends.

Fun stuff!
