Our Visit to the Owl Cafe and Lazy Weekend
Hey Guys! How was your weekend? Tell me all about it! Our was the laziest one that we’ve had in like for-ever. It was so nice and drove me crazy to just rest at the same time. Do you get me? I was actually pretty terrible at taking pictures. I mean when you are being uber lazy what is there a picture to take of? Anyway, I was good at taking pictures Friday. DC had the day off and we like to take full advantage of weekdays off. Japan has all these cat and owl cafes (I know sounds gross and fun all at the same time). So we decided to hit one up.
Or course because it was Friday so we had to dress in overalls. Aren’t overalls the cutest on littles?
Then off to the train to sweat in the heat of the summer!
By heat, I mean 120 heat index! I do not know what the humidity is but it was up there as well. It takes a lot for this Mississippi girl to say it is too hot to go outside, but Japan has been up to that challenge lately!
Entertaining on the train.
After lunch, we headed off to the cafe. It was a quick 10-minute walk from the train station (also where we ate).
We arrived and Mason was all into it. It was a very small cafe with four tables. Everyone over 3-year-old had to order something. I got a coffee and D.C. had a soda. Then after you finish your drink and/ or dessert you can pick an owl out to hold. The large ones were 1000 yen ($9ish) and the small ones were 400 yen ($3.50ish).
This little guy greeted us. Mason was not at all scared of him. Momma was a bit. I mean look at that beak!
Then it was time to pick out an owl to hold.
Huge and a bit creepy!
I mean I know they can turn their heads all the way around but when they do to look at you, it is on a whole other level!
He was a little nervous.
After we finished petting the owl, we needed back to the train station and then home.
It was about 2 p.m. and we were napless for the day, so lots of entertaining and singing on the train. We made it home about 3 p.m. Mason went straight for a nap and I went out for grocery shopping. The rest of our Friday was low-key.
We were lazy and went for a little stroll around the neighborhood. The end….(I know boring but it was kind of nice to chill for once)
Sunday I did some meal prepping, we Face-timed the family and then went to church. Followed church with lunch, naps for the boys and gym for me. Then back at church that evening. It was a raining day so perfect for chores inside and naps with the family.
Questions: Have you petted an owl? Would you hold one? When was your last lazy day? How hot it is where you are at? Any weekend fun to share?
