Marshmallow Days

We took Maya to Takako’s hometown of Tateyama to see Takako’s family there and showed her the sites, this was the result. Some of the cuts are there just to get Maya to laugh. She’s already watched it 20 times and won’t stop pestering us to show it 20 more. I feel flattered and very, very tired. The song on the video is “Marshmallow Day” by Mr. Children and we, in no way, have permission to use it.

I’ve been meaning to put this up forever. It’s vacation footage from 2012 cut to Otsuka Ai’s SMILY.

It’s fun to look back and remember how adorably chubby Maya was as a baby. My nieces, were right on the cusp of teendom too. That scene of them running into the setting sun was heaven-sent.

Maya Goes to Yanticaw Park

We went for a stroll with Maya and it turned into one of the most adorkable videos I’ve ever cut. I used to love this Amuro Namie song when I was a younger man… but it was always missing something. Suffice to say, I’ve fixed it with the addition of Maya.

This will be fantastic material to embarrass her with when she’s twenty.
