Back to School Urban Chic Style

We were asked by Miss Maranda if Sakura could participate in her Back To School photo sessions ... she asked Sierra to participate too ... we got SEVERAL super duper adorable pictures just for participating and Maranda got some awesome shots for flyers advertising to promote her mini sessions. We also took a change of clothes and got some really cute shots of Sakura just because :)

Here are a few of our favorites!

Here are the Back To School ones:

Disneyland Day 3

Always hate it when it's time to leave .... but today was our last full day at the Happiest Place on Earth. We opted to try California Adventure again, but as expected the darn line for the newest attraction was crazy so off we went to wander around.  

Hanging with Minnie on the bench while we waited for Daddy

In line for King Triton's Carousel

Sakura chose the sea horse!  I LOVE sea horses!!!

How cute is this?
Afterwards we decided to head over to watch the LIVE! Disney Junior show ... Sakura loves that show, but we had lots of free time before it started so we went to "match her princess" - she answered all of the questions she could, and we answered for her on the ones she didn't know ... Here is her assessment!

Imagine how excited she was to be matched with ARIEL?  She loves Ariel!

Showtime!  Clapping with Rocket and the Little Einsteins

Getting her telescope to look for Captain Hook with Jake and the Neverland Pirates

Tick Tock Crock

It's Minnie's Birthday!
Then we headed back over to Disneyland to watch the parade and hang out until it was time to leave that evening.

Best Seat in the house!

I never tire of looking at the castle!  

No trip to Disneyland without a stop at Minnie's House!

WE made a wish and she came true ... I hope all of your wishes come true Sakura!

Disneyland Day 2

We got up bright and early and headed to Disneyland for Sakura's appointment at the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique this morning, but stopped on our way in as LOOK who was right there with not much of a line!  MINNIE MOUSE of course!  Sakura's favorite!  

Posing with Minnie (and her Minnie too!)

Hanging with Minnie - there hasn't been a trip to Disneyland since she received her own Minnie that she didn't take her along - she LOVES her Minnie, riding in Signature Sakura style ... upside down sunglasses.
We ate a little breakfast and then headed over for Sakura's appointment.  SHE chose a different hairstyle this time.... we tried numerous attempts to pursued her that she should get something else, but she wasn't having it.  This trip she will be Pop Princess Sakura!

A little make-up first and then .... 

Almost done Pop Princess - style!

When she was done, we were happy with the results ... we think she is a gorgeous Pop Princess Sakura!

Don't you???

Then we headed to take flight with Dumbo - today it's a yellow one!  Sakura's choice!

AND of course King Authur's Carousel is next ... the line was short at Dumbo so we opted for that quickly before the crowds take over!

This girl would LIVE at Disneyland just like her Mommy!!!

Can you just FEEL her excitement?!

They were playing a game here ... Put the heart on the crown (you are SUPPOSED to close your eyes) .....

Somehow I think someone missed that part of the rules though :)  HAHA!  

Our Beautiful little princess!

Melt my Heart!

TADA!  What do you think guys?

Then we stopped in at Pixie Hollow

Fairies are Welcome here .... Sakura knows her way around this place VERY well!
We must come to Pixie Hollow each and every visit per her request.

Deep in conversation with this pixie whom I don't know the name of?!

Posing with the Pixie

HAHA - look who peeked through .... It's DADDY!!!

Then on to see Tink

I HAD to get a picture of the inside of Sakura's bun - how cool is this?!
We decided to head over to California Adventure HOPING to get a glimpse of the new Cars Land~!
Well the line for the ride was ridiculous, but we enjoyed our day anyway.

LOVE all of the new stuff here - Big Top Toys!

Can you see who she is following and trying to catch up with ?? 

Why it's GOOFY!

Dancing away in Cars Land

LOVE her carefree attitude.

Daddy found a photo op here in the Cones!  I love how these turned out!
