Birthday Fun at Disneyland

Well we couldn't think of anything better than heading to Disneyland for Sakura's 1st birthday celebration....it's the Happiest Place on Earth afterall!


After lunch we headed to Disneyland - Sakura wore her special birthday "outfit" proudly displaying that she was 1!

Her first ride was the Carousel, Mommy had a few tears while Sakura chan rode her first ride on her very special day, then we headed for the flying Dumbo's. Daddy has to sit out of most rides as he gets miserable motion sickness so Grandma enjoyed Sakura's Dumbo ride with us. Despite having all of these fun and pretty rides, Sakura's very favorite ride was the "Mommy Ride" - as you can see by the look on her face this by far was Sakura's favorite ride :) Mommy doesn't mind either .... I love that I'm a favorite for awhile, Disney will win out when Sakura is older I'm sure!

Here are just a few pictures (I use that term loosely!) from our girl's very special day!



I'm dressed and ready to go!



YAY for Disneyland!


Jumping with Daddy is so much fun!

GREAT pics of Dland! Love Sakura's out birthday outfit. Looks like a fun filled day and too funny about the "Mommy ride" being her favorite. Those Ergo carriers are the best, aren't they? Happy 1st Birthday to beautiful Sakura (again)! Those cheeks are just made for kisses. Can't wait until Part II.

Too Cute! I am so glad that she had a blast at Disney. It reminds me of Breanna's first trip...and now she is hooked! You have to bring her to Disney World...I must come on that trip! Love you guys!

I love, love, love those two shots of the mommy ride. You both look so joyful, and even that stranger in the background adds to the mood. You should totally frame at least one of those!

I LOVE her outfit. She is so pretty and sweet. Looks like she did really well at Disney! I love the Yay picture and her riding on your back. Is that an Ergo? Is it hard to get her on your back? I have one and find if very hard to do myself and I tend to use the Bjorn.

You are lucky she keeps her bows in. Savannah did and does too, but I heard many babies don't. I put bows in her hair very young and if she doesn't have a bow now she doesn't feel right and will ask for one.

Rich is the SAME way as Dean. Can't go on any spinning ride or he will get motion sickness. He takes medication for a flight or any boat or ship and has to be the driver. He can't ride in the backseat either or the back of a bus.

Glad you had a wonderful celebration and I look forward to the rest of the photos too.
