Glass Blowing Class in Austin

Cassie and I had a really fun date the other day when we went to a glass blowing class. We got to participate in parts of the creation process and it was tons of fun. I would love to do more glass blowing in the future when we have more money since it's fairly expensive. You can see all the photos we took of the date at

This isn't a picture of me but it is a photo of the grocery store that I used to shop at while I was serving a mission in Japan (found on Facebook). Fushimi is the name of the place and was a great place to serve. Many great memories come back to me when I see this grocery store (under big green sign).
