The FRG BBQ we went to today ended up being loads of fun for Kylie and Marissa. They had bounce houses, a playground, tons of food, snow cones, and best of all… RAKKASAN TORII TATTOOS!!!! The girls were so excited to RAK the TORII with pride in support of their Daddies. Steffanie had a few of us committing to a real torii tattoo (I told her I would think about it – ha!). I wanted to share a picture with you considering how cute they both were that day. I told them to flex their muscles and say RAKKASAN!!! I know you remember how Kylie says it too… similar to Mr. Myagi in the Karate Kid. So here they are in all their glory – full of pride and joy as all little RAKKETTES should be 🙂 Hooah!!!
For my non-Army friends: Rakkasan is the nickname given to Kyle’s brigade and the torii is their symbol. I found this on Urban Dictionary that describes it perfectly 🙂
