Of course preparation began yesterday with none other than laundry! Yosei's uniform was so muddy it needed and actual washing with the washing machine (I don't know how he managed that in a day). The blazed had to be put into a delicates net; good thing too, turns out Yosei had filled his pockets with sand so when I pulled it out of the net sand was falling out all over the place (><)
Anyhow this morning began with a 30 min walk to the train station, I wish they had chartered a bus like most schools do, but sadly not. So Keia in the stroller and Yosei walking next to me (he's pretty used to that though it's how we got around up until a month ago when I put some new child seats on my mom-cycle.
Yosei was pretty excited though because he absolutely loves trains, we even got to ride the monorail :)
After about a two hour ride we finally made it. They had us take a photo all together outside Puro Land. I haven't gotten a copy yet, I'm kind of wondering if we'll have to buy them or not :P
So anyhow we headed inside and first thing I was told is I need to check the stroller at the info desk and put any baggage I didn't want to carry around in a coin locker. So I put all our coats and such in a locker, but with a 1 year old the heavy clunky diaper bag is a necessary evil (-_-)
After stashing all our stuff we met up with Yosei's best friend, Haruki, and took a picture by this Sugarbunnies Christmas Tree thing (see photo below)
In any case after that was potty break and then lunch time. Since it was a special preschool trip they had bento prepared for all of us.
Also I'm kicking myself as I walked off and forgot the camera, so all photos were taken on either my phone or on Haruki's mother's phone hence the not so awesome quality. Enjoy the rest of my Puro land photo gallery! Also all photos with Haruki are posted with permission ;)

Also inside Hello Kitty's house
Hello Kitty has a ton of sofas in her house
Keia having a blast in Kitty's bathtub; Yosei, standing next to her, is also having a blast.
Yosei pulling a weird face cuz I couldn't get him to sit still :P
Photo with HK, green screen because I'm too cheap/poor to buy the ￥1000 ($10) fancy one with a digital background
Yosei and Haruki in the Kitty Mobile
And of course the Jewel Pets who came out to warmup the crowd in preparation for the big Hello Kitty Christmas Parade. This was the only (and last) show we acually hung out for before heading home. Keia fell asleep and Yosei was so not into sitting and watching singing and dancing for 30 min ;)
