Today we woke up rested and ready to go eat! We went and ate breakfast here in the hotel. I chowed down on eggs and toast. The bread here is quite delish fluffy and super soft. Can't wait til tomorrow morning! :) We enjoyed the extra strong coffee that is served here and headed straight for our computers. I was able to skype Ace for over 30 minutes this morning. It was so fun being right there with him in the family room. He was asking about all the girls and playing peek a boo with Tash! Even gave a few high fives via computer screen.
We had a spaghetti lunch and headed out to the field for practice. The weather was beautiful! We are playing on turf so it was good to get out there and get some reps. The stadium is really nice and quite big. After practice we headed back to the hotel and showered up. Tash and I went out to find some dinner. We ate at this little cafe/diner. Quite fun, Tash said her and Monica Abbott eat at this place quite frequent (They both play here in the Japan league). So I looked to her for assistance. I had a tomato and mozzarella salad, soup, and bread! Quite good and hit the spot. From there we stopped for a latte at Starbucks, couldn't pass it up. And to top off the night we stopped for some green tea ice cream. It is so good! I make sure to get it every time I am over here. And that was our night! Not a bad day in Sendai!
Tomorrow we open up the tournament with Australia at 3:30.
Here is our meal when we boarded the bus after our flight. A typical box lunch for over here. Chicken, pasta, salad, hot dog and egg. 4 half sandwiches, minus the egg salad sandwich, that one I ate. One cucumber, a chicken, and potato sandwich.
Here is Lauren Lappin at the field! We just arrived for practice. She is ready to go with a big grin!
Here is the team getting ready for practice.
This is us post practice. Heading back to the hotel! Burkhart with the peace sign!
Here is a picture of the teeny tiny puppy store we passed on our way to eat tonight. A whole bunch of teeny tiny dogs. They all were little bitty! So very cute. We couldn't stay too long the smell was horrid, but those puppies were adorable!
