"Dates" have been few and far between for Justin and I this past year ... not that we're complaining. Today, we left Maki with Gramma & Grampa (he had a blast of course!) and went to a Japanese Drumming Workshop facilitated by members of Kita No Taiko. So. Much. Fun.
We are by no means experts after three hours, but we did successfully learn to play a few songs! It was inspiring and rejuvenating ... we literally felt the music. We will most definitely have sore aching muscles in our arms tomorrow as a reminder of how much fun we had (I also have blisters on my hands!).
[Mei-chan, we have much respect for you little one! Drumming is hard work!]
We finished the afternoon with a delicious supper at one of our favorite restaurants: Mikado. Yum.
