My parents’ first overseas experience!! Shuri Castle, Aquarium and deliciousness!

March has been madness…and not in the basketball sense (although I’m certain my husband is missing that particular madness).  My parents are here on their first overseas trip EVER!!  It has been months in the planning, but they made it!  I honestly didn’t expect them to step off the plane in Naha…but they sure did!  They made it all the way through customs and immigration in Tokyo without any help and I’m SO proud of them!  We had a whirlwind first few days of preparing for Little E’s third birthday party and then celebrating my little bug.  Then we had a wonderful home worship on Sunday and busted out to see the island the next week.

What a wonderful two weeks!
