Hello Osaka!

I completely under estimated Osaka. I thought nothing could compare to Tokyo, but this place is pretty incredible! From the beautiful Osaka Castle to the flashy city on the water (Dotonbori), Osaka really is pretty cool. Brad desperately needed a haircut so he took a risk and walked into some random barber shop! It was so awesome to see him sitting amongst all of these old guys getting their trims  – haha!! The second the barber took the razor to the side of his head I thought ‘OH NO!’ because at first it looked like he was creating a bowl cut… BUT he completely redeemed himself! Thank heavens. I didn’t want to relive the time I accidentally buzzed Brad’s head bald. (Yes, this really happened.) One of the many reasons why I love Japan: The culture is so enthusiastic and happy! Like over the top, happy. Lucy and I got surrounded by a group of squealing school girls because of our blonde hair! They went crazy when Lucy started blowing kisses. This would never happen anywhere else in the world, I swear. They find happiness out of the smallest simplest things.

    The only way to eat takoyaki is to just shove the whole thing in your mouth. haha Just one of the many foods that I miss from Japan; Osaka is also famous for their okonomiyaki (its like an egg pancake), definitely something you guys should try, it's delicious! 🙂

    Please do a post on all your recommend stops in Japan! My husband went on his mission there and we're planning on going once we move to New York this summer (cause plane tickets are a million times cheaper haha).

    This made me cry. I wish I had some talented photographer /videographer following me around so I could have beautiful footage of me and my kids too. I'm jealous. Oops! I'm comparing!
