Splitting the posts from my US Trip this summer up, since they are going to be pretty huge. Lots of pictures coming up…
Anyway, so, US Trip! The day before we left, we got a call from Kenji’s Aunt in Kanagawa… Kenji’s grandmother had fallen and hit her head, and the diagnosis was not looking good. After calling his parents and talking it over, and many phone calls later, we decided that I would head directly to Texas while Kenji postponed his flight to Seattle. She stabilized while I was on my way to the US, so Kenji went to Seattle soon after, and came to Texas a week later. My first few days in Texas were relaxing, and I spent them with Mom and Mason in Houston shopping and eating and just enjoying the time.
When Kenji came, I picked him up and headed for Austin, and the next day, we all went out to Dad’s cabin in Wimberley. My grandparent’s also came in, so it was a bit crowded, but nice! …And then I caught a cold, so I spent the entire time sniffling and sneezing and snotty. Fun times.
The very first thing we did was stop at Rudy’s BBQ! Then we headed to Austin.
Then it was back to Austin for a little while longer since Kenji was around… we met friends for dinner and drinks in Hyde Park, as well as sightseeing in Austin a little. Then we headed back to Houston for a night before dropping Kenji off at the airport for his flight back to Seattle.

Then it was time for Enchanted Rock! It was SO hot, but I really enjoyed climbing. It was fun to see it again!
Getting gas on the way
I think he enjoyed himself!
