Kira, Erica, Masaru and I had an epic family outing, which was fitting because it was an epic weekend of celebrations- Kira turned two years old, Masaru celebrated his birthday, Erica and Masaru celebrated their 5 year wedding anniversary and Erica was celebrating Mother’s Day. We went to the arboretum to enjoy the beautiful spring flowers in bloom. Then we explored the Monroe Street neighborhood, which is their backyard. Within just steps of their home are Collectivo Coffee, Michael’s Frozen Custard, Lake Wingra, and a playground, among other things. And we did them all!
