We went to the airport with my parents, Deanna and my neices to pick up Kota. The weekend before we had made welcome signs and the little girls were excited to hold them and wait for Kota to come down the escalator.
Sign was made for Kota by Bret.
The Welcome sign, made by Deanna
Jason's Welcome sign
There he is in the red hoodie!!!
First time we got to talk face to face, before we had just been exchanging emails.
Once we said our hello's we went out to the parking garage and it was present time!! It was fun deciding when types of things we could give Kota that would not only represent us as a family but also show a little bit of our culture.
Jason and I got him a Coke a Cola tin filled with our favorite candies, things you can't find in Japan
Mom and Dad gave him an iTunes gift card to load up his iPod
Deanna and Bret gave him a Real Salt Lake t-shirt so he will be ready to go to a game.
Once the gifts were handed out we got in the car and headed home. Jason and I had just finished our loft area with hardwood floors and turned it into an exercise room/guitar room. Plus we finished Kota's room. Personally I love his room!!!
