We were so proud of Cannon today as he had his first piano recital. He's been taking lessons for about 18 months now, but this is the first time he's got to perform in front of a crowd. I know he was nervous, but he did great! We are so proud of him.
He was playing the Radetzky March by Strauss
With his teacher, Mrs. Choi
Since the recital was being held at the Renaissance Resort up island, we started the day by going for brunch at one of their resturants.

Unfortunately, the Asian buffet was full, so we ended up at the Italian one, which was also full, but they let us eat in the bar area and it was equally nice. The buffet was yummy with an awesome display of desserts - my favorite: beni imo tiramisu (beni imo are the purple sweet potatoes grown on Okinawa).

Not sure what these hairy fruits were in the foreground, but the chocolate fountain was good!
Our friend Liz and daughter Lydia joined us for brunch and the recital. Later, another neighbor, Sarah and her daughter, Nola, drove up to hear the performance too. We are so fortunate to have such wonderful, caring neighbors here.
London, looking very dapper with his hair actually styled. That's Joey in the background, another neighbor whose sister, Courtney, was also performing.

Did you know the legal driving age in Japan is four? Just kidding! This was on display outside the hotel.
