Sakura was born five months and one day ago. Tomomi made this cake for her. It says, "Sakura-chan" in Hiragana. "Chan" is used as a child's honorific.

This is a Cougar I by Chariot. It is a modular system that can be adapted for jogging and hiking. It can also be fitted with caster wheels to make it into a regular stroller. Most interestingly, you can buy kits that turn it into a bicycle trailer or a cross-country skiing pulk. It's not cheap, but it might be a good investment due to its versatility
