Happy Birthday Sam!October 25 in Japan
Happy birthday to the cutest, sweetest and most delightful little boy! Sam set the pace for the day today and it was full of sweet treats! Starting with breakfast at the hotel, we had a nice slow morning, with Sam indulging in croissants and the local buns with crusty tops called "melon-pans" (he had the choc chip variety!)
A play at the local playground followed, where we saw lots of local preschoolers. Sam wasn't very keen to join in on their play, even though a couple of kids tried to play with him.
Cupcakes were our next stop, which served as his birthday cake for today. Given Japan's fondness of all things Halloween there were some very cool decorated cakes and unusual flavours, but as always he chose vanilla!
Knowing that he would be celebrating a birthday while we were in Japan, his only request was to ride on a Shinkansen. We made that happen by heading back into Tokyo for the last week of our trip. Shinkansen shoes and a Shinkansen backpack made for great pressies, but all he was really wanting was an ice-cream at the end of the day.
Happy birthday sweet Sam, we hope you had a great day. Love you xxxRead more
