In May, we took a trip to Japan and South Korea (more on that later). The highlight of the trip was definitely getting to see Uncle Loren (my older brother) and his wife Auntie Tomoko -- one of my three fabulous sisters-in-law. My sisters and I absolutely hit the sister-in-law jackpot with these lovely ladies. We see them so seldom, but it always joyous and fun when we do. Loren and Tomoko have lived in Japan for, well, forever and this was our first visit to Japan. The kids, not surprisingly, loved spending time with them and they were generous and gracious hosts. We will be going back for sure.
