Big Trouble in Little Tokyo

The fellas and I were in search for a birthday gift for Madie, everybody's favorite cousin! Since she's a big fan of art and Japan flavored stuff, we took the train to Little Tokyo to shop.

The boys planned out our route at the station:
We shopped and shopped, and found a cool bag for Madie that zips into a little pouch. Then we filled it with cute little somethings; including a sponge shaped like a cat, a set of glitter chop sticks and a bunch of chocolates and candy.

All that shopping made us hungry, so we walked over to a little sushi place, The Frying Fish. When we all walked in, we discovered it was a tiny sushi bar whereupon the sushi circled the bar/island on a conveyor belt. Hartwell screamed, "Mom! That's a conveyor belt!"
Hartwell was so excited to be able to just grab food off the belt and eat it. He ate mackerel. And tuna sashimi. Bee ate 2 plates of edamame, one of which was grabbed when I wasn't looking. The sushi chef even did  magic tricks for them!  I really should have been paying more attention to the plate prices. It turned into a $50 lunch...of joy!

Here we are dancing on the mirrored ceiling:
On the way home we stopped for a snack. I wanted cupcakes, but Hartwell wanted to go to the coffee shop we usually stop at when dad is with us. So they had water and a brownie. And I had a giant latte full of espresso.

Today Hartwell told me when he grows up he wants to be a sushi chef...and work at The Frying Fish.
