Three generations rolling dumplings around the table. In the twinkling of an eye, this family’s female line covered the table with gyōza. It’s not just more fun working together: it tastes better too.

Discovery: This is a Ball
Playing ball with Papa under the cherry blossoms. Considering it was her first time, our daughter must be a natural. She was so good at tossing it. She really didn’t want to stop.

My son came home with his family this New Year. Here they dedicated their first calligraphy of the year to some New Year’s wishes.
