It's only August and summer is already over for us. I'm writing this from the airport while I wait to go to Seattle, then on to Tokyo. It's a 10 hour flight that gets us there tomorrow. It's our first flight over the Pacific and our first time in Asia. We'll add more to this blog and change it around, but for now, here are a few pictures of our summer that was oh so short.
