We live the life we love and love the life we live.

I am about a week behind on my blogging but have vowed to pick up the pace. So, here are some pictures from our adventure last weekend.

I think Courtney and I found four different locations to test out these springy-animals. They were everywhere in and around the island of Shodoshima, which is where we went kayaking. This one, oddly enough, was on the ferry that we took out to the island. It only made the ride that much better.

We have decided to pick up kayaking when we return home to America. Moving to Montana for the summer and kayaking on Lake McDonald (as long as our plans work out, and I am confident that they will) would be an ideal situation.

How can you not love that face?

Chris lost his wedding ring while playing in the water, so the boys went diving for it. After about 30 minutes our guide became intrigued by what they were doing and asked what they were looking for. He then jumped into the water and immediately pulled up the ring. It was bizarre.

It was an amazing day to be out on the water.

I am really trying to get Peter into more tank tops these days. Granted, he is only wearing a life jacket, but I love this look.

Taco rice anyone? Mexican food is unheard of in Japan, but due to Chris' food allergies our guide bailed on his original fish idea and cooked a real mexican feast. It was wild, our kayaks were packed with all this cooking material and we didn't even know it. Taco rice is basically a burrito without the tortilla and it was amazing. He even had salsa, which was a huge surprise. And it wasn't the salsa you get out of a jar either, this guy makes his own salsa. It was delicious and we were very impressed, to say the least.

This is us on the ferry home. We were really tired.
