Japan Festival

Japan Fest was this weekend in Hermann Park. We decided to go since Olivia is taking Japanese at school and this would probably be our last chance to do something like this in Houston. There were lots of booths selling Japanese goodies (fans, umbrellas, Hello Kitty paraphanalia and comic books, etc.) as well as food booths. I couldn't convince Olivia and McIver to try any of the food, aside from the typical and expected snow cone.

I promise Olivia was having more fun than this picture shows.

We saw a little bit of the martial arts demonstration, but the Kofu Daiko (drums) were way more interesting.

We also managed to get a few pictures in front of some Houston monuments...

It was a really beautiful day so we decided the fun wasn't over yet. We made our way back to the car and headed over to the newly renovated Children's Museum.
