Halloween night on base was a great time. The kids made off like bandits with gobs of candy. It was a little chilly, but all had a great time.

Tonight was pumpkin-carving time. I was relieved that the commissary had many pumpkins to choose from. The kids got to each carve their own minus Avie who fell asleep shortly before we started. My job was to scoop out the seeds.

Just another picture of some beautiful Japanese countryside.

This weekend we went to Kakunodate to visit two notable samurai houses, the Aoyagi House and the Ishiguro House. I was excited to go but didn't think I would enjoy as much as the other things we have been doing.

We try to make use of any three day weekends, there is just so much to see. I'd really been looking forward to seeing some fall colors so on Columbus Day we decided to go hiking up the Hakkoda mountains...but Avie woke up with a fever and Danielle wasn't feeling good either. I was bummed! Dan was on call anyway so he said he would stay home with the sick ones and let me go with Rayce. He didn't have to tell me twice.
