  • Today we are going to Northport Mall because they have a Bookoff.

  • And, my kids don't have backpacks large enough to carry all their school overnight things in.

  • So, I need to go buy a backpack.

  • Major intersection here.

  • Leading right up to another major intersection.

  • With a train going over it. Welcome to Japan!

  • Starting to look like Yokohama. Starting to look like rain.

  • It's rainin' hard. It is raining pretty hard up there.

  • Northport's parking garage goes up for 7 or 8 stories.

  • And up and up.

  • And so begins the ascent.

  • Just don't like parking here because the parking spots are so teensy weensy.

  • And in Japan you back in to all of the spaces.

  • We made it.

  • Mode Off, look out.

  • I see some more backpacks.

  • We found one that she likes already, wow.

  • Ok, here we go.

  • Let me check inside.

  • This could be a tough decision.

  • I think I'm going to buy this for Anna.

  • Oh, no I'm not.

  • Yummy! Lunch time. A little Taco Bell today. Yum.

  • In between the time that we went into the mall and we came out, it just down poured.

  • Because it's rainy season and then now it looks like its going to get sunny again. This is just like when we lived in Brazil.

  • Wow. Look who it is.

  • And me. Aiden and Joshua. What's going on guys?

  • Are we going to come play at home?

  • We are going to make chocolate chip cookies.

  • Gonna make chocolate chip cookies?

  • Joshua, where's your mask?

  • Oh, it's starting to rain again!

  • Oh, here comes a train. I can see it! I can see it too. Its the yellow one. You can see it? There it is, there it is.

  • Get ready for it!

  • I was scared that my mask would just fly out of my pocket. Oh my goodness, how many masks do you have in your pocket? Four.

  • Get the hats on its raining, its raining. Protect your heads!

  • Let's get back, huh? It said it wasn't going to rain for the next hour!

  • That's right. They said no rain for an hour.

  • And then, down pour.

  • Ok.

  • I know this guy. I've seen him on TV before.

  • Mega Lightning McQueen. A mega, yeah.

  • So, is this what we meant by we're making chocolate chip cookies? Does that mean...

  • I make it, they eat it. It's cleaner that way. Yes.

  • In the meantime, I'm making a fresh pot of coffee, oh yeah.

  • Should we play a... I'm just going to show you my game.

  • I can have this dinosaur.

  • Five minutes later, my dough is ready. Super fast. Glorious. Super easy - crowd pleaser.

  • And in the meantime, the coffee is ready. Good timing.

  • Here's something that's a game that's really cool.

  • So we actually can hang this up somewhere.

  • Like right there. I'm the one that found that board. It was hiding in there.

  • Then they can stick on, see.

  • You're gonna hold it Joshua for him? That's brave.

  • If Aiden gets it here you get 100 points.

  • We need to find a hooking thing so it can hook on.

  • And Aiden... Here, why don't we close one of these and put it on the door.

  • Very good.

  • It can stick on.

  • Sarah. Coming home from school. Hi honey.

  • Hi. How was school today? Good. Good, what did you do?

  • We did a practice of doing an earthquake.

  • An earthquake drill practice, oh my. How did it go? Good.

  • Oh, very cool. Guess who's at home right now.

  • Mommy? Yep, and?

  • Joshua? And??

  • Aiden!

  • They are playing like two peas in a pod, let me tell you what.

  • Hey, Joshua said, Joshua said, no you can't go upstairs because it's only boys, no girls allowed.

  • No girls allowed upstairs? Oh my goodness.

  • Well, maybe you'll need to send daddy upstairs if you need to get something.

  • Ok!

  • Hurry!
