You make me smile...

Friday night: Yaya to Me, "You're not very tall are you?" and after thinking a bit continues, "Maybe when you are a Mommy you'll grow, cause my Mommy is tall." "Do you want to play with me?"
Today we had a scavanger hunt for the SETTERS. They dressed up and hid around Tama Center. That's right folks, the following pictures have indeed been taken in public.
Yasushi is waiting for the game to start.
Shanghai's kakuii (cool) shirt!
The Dream Team... I mean, I don't want to brag or anything but perhaps this team was made in scavanger hunt heaven. ha ha!
Sae, Shanghai, and Jo (Kie joined us later)
Our first "find" Lisa as a pregnant woman and Ariel as a street performer. Their challenge for us was to sing, "I Want It That Way" by the Backstreet Boys.
Mikey was dressed as a child. Instead of waiting for people to find him, he would RUN so that it was almost impossible to catch him.
"Mikey, didn't you hear me call out your name?" I asked.
"Yeah, but I just ignored you."

I'm sorry, just in case that first picture didn't give Mikey justice. He wore Abbie's backpack and hat... it was just crazy. His challenge was to play a game with him.
Of course, Rebekka and Chris gotta be thuggin'. I wouldn't accept anything less than the best California attitude from these two. :) They were hip hop dancing in Tama Center and their challenge was a "dance off".
Curt was a sports player and his challenge was to score a soccer goal against him.
Meaghan was a European tourist... oh, she looks lost.
Her challenge was that we had to perform, "I'm A Little Teapot" in front of people at Tama Center. (Obviously Shanghai didn't get the memo that the spout goes on the left side. ha ha;) !)
I missed a picture of Ken because I started getting this crazy notion that we could actually win... we were running around from person to person. Lawerence was our last SETTER to find. His challenge was to find something for his "soup" (he was a chef). I threw in a pack of gum and we were off for the finish line.
HERE YOU GO!!!! For all of you who have been waiting for a picture of my new roommate, here she is!!!! Drum roll for my dear AYANO EGASHIRA!!!!!
I would also like to tell you that at this very moment I am introducing my dear Ayano to "Footloose" the movie. That's right. I'm trying to refrain from teaching her the dance but we'll just see where this night leads...
Mikey waits to see what the verdict is for his game... three steps or ten?
Racing through Tama Center... Lawerence and Akio, Mikey and Tatsu, Mary and Kie
Despite their faces, I think Chris and Kay Kay enjoyed their day. Kayla had a full day of activities.
Like I said, Kayla had a full day of eating ice cream, dancing in Tama Center, and playing in the dirt.Ariel, Meaghan, and Jo enjoyed their day as well.
Leaving on the train... heading out to get some sushi before calling the day "quits"!
Ohhhhh, Kie and I had a full day. We are cho tired.
