The exterior of the building at Mitsuwa Marketplace, inside there is a japanese bookstore, a few places to eat and a fairly large market - you can get a variety of japanese items inside. Sakura ended up with LOTS of different rice crackers (she LOVES them!), some boro cookies, a couple of books...hmm that's all I can think of :)
It's quite funny to watch Sakura with her books now - here she is in the store "reading" - which means looking and saying things - don't know what she's saying as she is speaks her own language, but I'm sure it makes sense to her, then she turns the page and "reads" it too. So kawaii!!!
Then we headed to the beach, it had warmed up a bit by the time we finished shopping.
(*warning there are a MILLION pics below - scaled down from the 2 million I took!)
Sakura couldn't wait to get to the water - she LOVES water remember!
Um Mommy I'm not sure I like this water! Needing reassurance!
The CUTEST feet on the beach!
OK Daddy, let's go! I'm going to try this again............
I love water - but this is pretty cold and it splashes Dad!
COME ON - this stuff is COLD and it splashes - pick me up Daddy!!! I don't like waves!
The best view of the beach and water is from right here!
This is sticking to my hands... See....
But I like it - I like sand way better than this water!
OK let's try this one more time.....off to the waves!
Almost running to get to the water!
Sakura kept saying "no, no, no" when we'd try to get her back down to the water....
definitely NOT a fan of the waves this year - maybe next year?
Happiest on the land in the sand :)
Maybe next time we will try the Mission BAY side where there aren't any waves?
Best spot at the beach is right beside my Daddy!
And playing in the sand
This shot is especially for Heather!
If you look closely you'll see a bit of sand above Sakura's lip, she tried just a small taste from the rake....I don't know if she liked the beach sand taste or not, but she didn't eat much!
