Dosokai for the 3 Musketeers

I know I know, we should just move to Disneyland - how many times have I heard that?

Well we made another quick trip to THE Happiest Place on Earth for a little dosokai of the 3 Musketeers. These were some of Sakura's first roommates at Okada-San's in Japan and will always be members of our family. We are SO lucky to have such amazing people in our lives, we wouldn't miss getting together for anything. We did miss the Yamamoto's when they visited Anaheim last time because we had other obligations, but we always try to make it happen.

We had Friday free, since the Yamamoto's had family to visit so we headed to .... hmmm, where? Disneyland of course. First we rode the train around because Sakura 1st request this time was a visit with the Princess'!

Well the line was 75 minutes, so Daddy (SO sweetly) offered to stand in the line and we wouldn't all have to suffer. So Sakura and Mommy headed to see Minnie, one of Sakura's favorites!

Hugs for Minnie (with her Minnie from the last trip).

Then we headed back down to the Princess' where Daddy was patiently waiting .... and there was STILL a long line, we all managed to wait probably 40 minutes longer before it was our turn.

Ariel was first, as you can see Sakura was running to get to her.

And then Belle - deep in conversation with Sakura.

But always time for a pretty picture.

And this time we got to visit with Jasmine!

We called it an early day and headed to check-in and got up bright and early to start our Saturday at the parks before meeting up with everyone for lunch.

I ordered Sakura some milk for breakfast, however she had requested chocolate milk (which I've never given her), but her Daddy said "You have to give it to her sometimes" - so I caught the waiter and ordered chocolate milk - Sakura was THRILLED!

Yes, someone LOVES to climb!

Then it was time to head over to Naples to meet everyone.

Auntie Dale, Quinn (Sena) and Sakura (Sena is just about 11 days younger than Sakura, so they spent the first probably three or four weeks together.)

Uncle Ward, Quinn and Sakura

Sakura and Michael (Kazuya) visiting!

Sakura and Michael - they are a day apart in age, so they spent about their first 6 weeks together.

Three Musketeers reunited!

Goofy Sakura~

SO Happy to be back with her friends - she kept asking ALL morning where is Kazuya? Where is Sena? So when they finally got there, she was beyond happy to see them.

BIG hugs for her boys

The boys

IN the same order they appeared in their first photograph together. (They just happened to end up in this order, there was no posing three - 3 year olds!)

It's always more fun to play vs. taking pictures!

Until next time.

Hey Guys, Sakura is so adorable! Thanks for the comment on our blog. We are back from Tokyo now and Kaito is doing great. He is growing fast and it's been an awesome adventure with him. We love seeing all the photos of Sakura and imagining that Kaito will be that big some day! Hope you guys are doing well.
