On October 21st, 7 of us (and our babes) loaded up our kids, strollers, carriers, blankets, food, diapers...you get the idea...and headed out for a stroll and picnic in Kichijoji Park. As you can see, we had a great time!
On the train...off we go...
My view of Mallory, in the baby carrier.
We didn't, but you can rent these swan paddle boats and go around the pond in them.

The temple located in Kichijoji Park.
A stone near the temple. I have no idea what it says :)
The group in front of the temple.
A Japanese artist painting the scenery in the park.
Enjoying a dessert crepes break in a pavilion on the way back to the train. Crepes are a delicious dessert they sell here. It's like a huge flat pancake and they will fill it with just about anything you want. Mine had ice cream, bananas, chocolate sauce and sprinkles on it today...I ate the entire thing and only managed to drip one small drop of ice cream on Mallory's head :)
Obviously a spin off of Hard Rock.
The whole group on the street in Kichijoji, walking back to the train station.
An escalator in the train station. When someone in a wheelchair needs to get up or down, they rope off the escalator, slow it down, have a few of the stairs attach together to make a "platform", and down they go. We'd never seen that before- kinda neat, huh?
