We pretty much just shopped around all day ^___^. Carter seemed to really like all of the clothes, too. So much of it fits his creative style.
Elevator in Shibuya 109 Men's:
With decorations and everything! haha ^___^'
After going to a few more places, we went back to Grant's to cook a Christmas dinner. Mrs. Mark sent some panettone bread, which they usually make into french toast and eat on Christmas morning. We sliced them into smaller pieces and also cooked some bacon.
~And now some higher quality pictures lie ahead~
Yesterday, Grant and I took Carter to Harajuku to see the greatness IRL.
First, we went to the Meiji Shrine. We got stopped by locals, asking if they could practice their English with us and give us a tour. For 40-50 minutes. Oh gosh, we had to decline. So many 'you're-not-supposed-to-take-pictures' pictures to be taken!
Lucky you, I took my good camera. XD
Yeah, it never happened in the end XD. idek.
Very narrow streets for the amount of people. Usually there's twice to three times as many though O___O.
So many little nooks with more hidden stores.
For some reason, we never went down this street before:
Reminds me a little of MirrorMask:
At around 5, we headed out to the New York Bar to have our belated fancy Christmas dinner (Thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Mark!).
Shinjuku getting ready for the night:
Excuse me while I write some moon-letters on my map.
What Grant called, "SNL" shots, lololol:
Pretty darn awesome, eh?Here is Grant being fancy:
Burger! "New York Bar “Omi” Cheese Burger, Spicy Pickles Salsa, Bacon, and Crispy Duck Fat Potato Fries" (without cheese):
Carter ordered a "Brick Oven Pizza with Pork Belly, Provolone and Forrest Mushrooms":
"Peppered Pork Steak Sandwich with Bourbon BBQ Sauce, Tomatoes, and Creamed Mushrooms." This is my creeper shot of it:
This could have been where Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson sat!:
More dining areas:
It was a pretty darn awesome day.
Oh yeah, when we went into one of the huge stores in Shinjuku, Grant and I each tried a Gachapon with Nintendo Controllers in them that are also flashlights.
|Rows of Gachapons|
We ended up getting the Wiimotes. Both of us. The worst option available. And the lights couldn't even alert a rescue team of your whereabouts if you were lost in a dark maze.
I will have to stick with using Periculum with my wand.
We are still recovering from our anger.
The day before, I got to see my family open the presents I sent them! It was so awesome that they were able to open them on Christmas Eve.MoMo and one of her presents, a Rex plushie ^___^:
I accidentally ran across the screen while video chatting with them a few weeks ago. Lauren then saw it of course and said, "Is that for me?!" *le sigh*
Until she saw what picture was on it. And the Inverted version on the back.
LOL.Please, behold. The night before Lauren and Shawn got married, Bethy ran into Lauren's room before she went to bed and took a few pictures without Lauren's approval. This one was of the greatest. We like to call it "Lauren's last night as a single woman."
Shawn said that when he tells their kids that, they'll call him a wizard or miracle worker.
I think Lauren was really happy about it. Look, she's hugging it.
It was a really happy Christmas.
Be prepared for a really awesome post next. I found the best thing in Japan ever.
