Cherry Blossoms and the family

When I was adding all of those pictures I forgot to add the pictures of us.
Silly me.
As much as my family likes to see the places we go I think pictures of the grandkids trumps flowers.

Had to get yen for the giant bag of cotton candy!

Cherry Blossoms

I believe Elizabeth Barrettt Browning must have been talking about Cherry blossoms when she wrote this poem.
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's I am gonna cut it there to save space. Plus she gets goes a little overboard. Forget her courtship with Robert Browning. Nah it was cherry blossoms I tell ya.

We took a little trip to Mt. Yaedake this weekend. I had to make sure to see them. I have mentioned in earlier posts that I am obsessed. I wasn't joking around about that. The proof my friends is in the amount of pictures I am going to post here.
Brace yourselves.

OH you think it is over but nooooo I am just waiting for the other photos to load on here. While I wait I will compose a poem of my own about cherry blossoms....

On the way up there were orange trees. Or maybe tangerine trees.

There were people selling oranges or whatever they were all over. I liked that this guy was wearing a uniform. Kinda strange.

The kids poked their heads out to see the trees. There was so much traffic we were going really slow.

We had a good time and I would have written my poem but I was on itunes watching LOST.

On the road again Part III

We finished off our busy weekend with a trip up North to Hedo point.
We have now been to the most northern and southern tips of Okinawa. It is really beautiful up there. The contrast of colors was amazing. I kept telling my husband it looks like someone photoshoppped the whole area. It was pretty Hazy up there too, but we climbed around and had a good time.
This is on the way up.

Gotta love it when things are in English. Oh and Spanish!

They always have to climb to the most dangerous part!

Almost there.

She gets there first every time. She now Loves to hike.

Having fun at the top.

This is what they were on.

Here are more than a few from hanging around up there.

She will pose on a cliff all day.

And the close ups begin. Notice down a few the girlscout cookies. She is a nut!

Some jumping shots for fun.

She loves to jump.

She is my photographer and also my jumping coach.

The little ones with daddy.

We bought some food and ate a bit before the trip home.

We had a good time and it wasn't that long to get up there.
I am going to enjoy checking out other areas up there. It is beautiful!!
