Japan Diaries: Day 3

Day 3 Dec. 21, 2014:
Good morning Japan! It's a sunny day! However, the weather outside is still cold. Today, we'll be heading to Suita City in Osaka Prefecture.
We left the Kameyama residence and drove to Suita City early to watch the dodgeball tournament of Akiko's youngest son. Sadly, his team lost but it was a great game and the kids enjoyed it. After the game we went on a little walk in Nishigawara Park (we also did some picture taking of course)

We then drove going to the Muro residence, we passed by several restaurants to buy some take out food for the get together party. We bought food at Delicius Pasticceria (yup that's how they spelled delicious) and Crocchetta.
So cute I felt guilty I ate it.

During the party we got to meet some of Akiko's close friends. We had fun chatting with them and I had fun playing with their kids too. When night fell and the visitors started to back to their homes, I thought that we're going home too but to my surprise we headed to Expo '70 Commemoration Park (also in Suita City) to watch an illumination event. 
It was a very cold night but that didn't stop us from finishing the illumination event.

What we witnessed was the Illumi-night Banpaku Xmas event. It is our second illumination event since we got to Japan. This unplanned trip surely made my day. After the show, we got to walk around the park for a bit but the cold weather drained us of our energy, so we decided to go back home.
Road home.
After several hours of travelling, we finally got back to Kameyama residence. By this time I already got a motto. "Although tired, we must be ready because tomorrow is another story." (... and yes tomorrow would be another story)
