It's hard to believe that it's already the first week of May. A month ago I was still wearing a winter coat and now the weather is sunny and in the 70's. The beginning of May contains a group of holidays known as Golden Week, and for the first time since we moved here, we aren't losing one to a Saturday. Last Wednesday was a holiday, along with this Monday through Wednesday. Luckily the weather has been great and so far John and I have been really enjoying our extra time together. We've ventured to a few new areas, hit a few old favorites, and celebrated Raku's birthday.
