Taura Ninja Park

The kids needed some more bamboo for building teepee and such in the backyard so we headed to one of our favorite parks.
 I have a picture like this of the kids just weeks after we arrived in Japan and wanted to recreate it.

This playground is a long line of obstacles that we like to race and time each other on.  I was pretty proud of myself for getting it done in 2 minutes and 19 seconds.  Not bad considering Bob got it in 2:20 and Tucker and 2:18 on their first try.  They were able to beat me on their second attempts.  Penelope was amazing and the the winner of both tries with a time of 1:52.
Leon and Scarlett participated as well and both beat my first time which was 3 minutes and 40 seconds.  Scarlett was pretty particular about making sure that no one knew her time.  I felt bad for her.  She thought she would be the slowest and was worried about people making fun of her.  She was telling me about how she wishes she was faster.  I tried to tell her that it really didn't matter who was the slowest but it is hard for kids to understand that. 

I love it when we have a chance to get outside.
