Hi everyone, It’s been so hot! How are you coping with the heat?

 

It’s been three months since my boys started going to the nursery and we have finally got used to our new life style.

 

Recently we went to Karatsu for the weekend. We wanted to go around this time partly because my husband will soon be transferred to Tokyo…

 

It only takes an hour and a half to get to Karatsu by train. Taking the train is nice because you get to see the beautiful ocean view.

 

Toshi, my older son, likes playing in water, especially the sea, so the main purpose of this trip was so he could play at the beach and take it easy, and we could all spend some time together.

 

As soon as we checked in at Karatsu, we headed to the beach. The water was a little murky and the sea was rough. It was very different from what we saw from the train. We were a little disappointed, but Toshi ran and ran along the water’s edge and seemed very happy. It was only the second time for Toshi to see the sea so he didn’t have any expectations. Even though I was knackered from carrying Aoi, my younger son, and our baggage that still made me smile.

 

After we left the beach we strolled through the arcade in the downtown area and then went back to the inn.

At the inn, we took a bath and enjoyed a nice meal in our room. Toshi loved the big bath, because I’m sure it felt like a pool for him.

In a Japanese style inn, the staff comes to the room and sets up the futon for us after dinner.

An elderly lady came to our room. She was very nice and let Toshi help her set up the futon and the sheets. He got so excited and loved doing that.

 

The next day after taking another bath in the big family tub, we went back to the arcade to let Toshi have a soft-serve ice cream. When we went there the day before, Toshi licked a giant size soft-served ice cream replica. For some reason there are many of them in the arcade, Toshi got very crazy and wouldnt stop licking them… So we decided to come back to let him to have a real one.

 

After that we visited a different beach from the day before and had lunch at a hotel with an ocean view.

We took it easy and headed back home after that.

 

After we came back, I asked Toshi what he enjoyed the most, and his answer was that he enjoyed swimming in the big bath and setting up the futon with the old lady.

Hmm, did we really need to go all the way to Karatsu?  

It was very cute though.

 

みなさん、暑い日が続きますがいかがお過ごしですか?

我が家はボーイズが保育園に通い始めて3ヶ月が過ぎ、ようやく新しい生活に慣れてきました。

 

近々、主人が東京に赴任することになりまして、その前にゆっくり家族で過ごそうと、週末を使って唐津に行ってきました。

 

電車で1時間半もあれば唐津に着きますが、車窓から海が見えてなかなかいいですね。

最近、長男のトシが水遊び、特に海で遊びたがるので、海で遊んでゆっくり過ごそうということで近場の唐津に行くことにしました。

 

唐津の宿にチェックインしてすぐにビーチに行きましたが、車窓からの景色とは違い、水が濁っていて、波は荒かったので、ちょっとがっかりでした。それでもトシは喜び、大はしゃぎで波打ち際を走っていました。トシは海自体がまだ2回目なので、期待もなかったのかな。。私は次男のアオイを抱っこして、荷物もありましたので、すでにくたくたでしたが、トシの喜ぶ姿が嬉しかったです。

ビーチで遊んだ後は街の商店街をうろついて、宿に戻りました。

宿では家族風呂に入り、夕食を食べてのんびり。トシは家族風呂でも大はしゃぎでした。プールみたいで楽しいんでしょうね。また、夕食後にお布団を敷いてくれる宿のおばちゃんが、トシと一緒にお布団を敷いてくれて、トシは大興奮でした。

 

翌日は朝風呂に入り、商店街に戻りました。

前日に商店街に行った際、1メートルくらいあるソフトクリームのレプリカがたくさんあり、トシがそれらを舐めるので私は気が気じゃありませんでした。。ですので、本物のソフトクリームを食べさせてあげようということで再び商店街に行きました。

 

その後は前日とは違うビーチで遊び、海が眺められるホテルで昼食をとり、早めに帰路につきました。

 

うちに戻った後、トシに「何が一番楽しかった?」と聞くと

「お風呂とお布団敷いたの」と言われてしまいました。

わざわざ唐津まで行って、この答え。。(笑)かわいいですけどね。
