Summer memory

One of my good memory in this summer is Fireworks!! I love fireworks and always check where I can see them. In this summer, my husband and I went to see them in Kagoshima. It took 3hours driving from our place. This fireworks is one of the biggest in this area and we could see many people. It was really tough to get parking space even though we arrived 5 hours earlier them starting fireworks. Finally, we got and also got some snacks.
In this firework festival, we could see more than 15000 fireworks for 2 hours. They were soo beautiful and I was very impressed their beauty.


























Bread I made

I made 2 kinds of bread. One of them are Chocolate Danish.













I was really hard to make them and it took over 4 hours...

Others are white bread. They are so soft and matched with butter very much.
