The Nasu Animal Kingdom

Sorry for disappearing yesterday. We ended up sleeping in until about eleven-thirty (which is pretty late for us these days), and that didn't leave us much time to get all our errands done before having to get ready to go to some stake conference sessions in the evening. We did take some extra time to go to Baskin Robbins, though. All our talk about Mr. Donut made us want donuts, so we were trying to decide if we should get donuts or if we should get ice cream, and we remembered that we forgot to check what the flavor of the month is at Baskin Robbins' website, so we walked all the way to the physical location to fine out. Turns out it was pumpkin cheesecake, which we have no interest in, but! they were advertising their new donut ice cream sandwiches, which meant we could have donuts and ice cream, so that was the obvious winner.

And now, Collapse )

Today I'm thankful for getting to go to the Nasu Animal Kingdom, getting to see all the super fluffy dogs, getting to see the sheep herding demonstration, getting to hear Japanese spoken with a thick New Zealand accent, and really cool bird shows that keep the birds flying the whole time.
