Well Disneyland wasn't the best today, it drizzled and rained all day long :(
But we had a fabulous day regardless.
We didn't let the rain stop us from having fun - We were able to get to most rides and just walked on, since the rain seemed to scare others away. We took advantage and headed straight to It's A Small World - Sakura's favorite ride at Disneyland....she was mesmerized with all of the dolls and moving things, she stood up on the seat and just watched and looked at everything. It really is a Small World Afterall....
Such a small world that after leaving that ride we headed straight for the Jungle....Jungle Cruise that is ;) Then we saw some Pirates, no pics on Pirates though.

After a stop for lunch at ESPN Zone, we headed over to California Adventure and Sakura enjoyed her 3rd favorite - could be a close tie with It's A Small World - Play House Disney. Sakura LOVED this show, she would stand up and clap and clap and clap, and dance and dance and dance...it was pretty cute. I think that Daddy, Mommy and Grandma enjoyed watching Sakura more during this show than anything else we saw.
Can you see the excitement?

Later that evening.....
Those of you that have followed our journey since we began will remember a special little guy that was in several pictures with Sakura when she was with Okada San in Japan. Kazuya was one of Sakura's first roommates. Sakura's birthday 4 Feb, Kazuya's birthday 5 Feb. We were SO excited that we were able to get Sakura together with Kazuya for their birthday's. Cheryl (Kazuya's Mommy) brought him to our hotel room on his birthday and came with special little cakes for Sakura and Kazuya celebrating their special day. I cannot tell you the emotions running through my heart as we brought these two together - a special bond that hopefully always remains, they spent their first 6 1/2 weeks together waiting for their families and then they were able to spend their 1st birthdays together too. Life is truly amazing. Kazuya is beyond adorable. I think Sakura knew or remembered Kazuya, because she didn't cry at all....whereas with other kids Sakura always cried. When we received Kazuya's Christmas card in the mail, Sakura made a squealing noise when I said "It's Kazuya" and reached for his picture...Cheryl said that whenever she shows Kazuya Sakura's picture, he always smiles.
