March 2017 - The Mizuta Family



Hi everyone! Riko and I moved from Canada when Riko was one year old. We are Japanese who are so lucky to live in Hawaii! It was at Christmas parade when 5 year old Riko and I saw Wendy in Mililani. Wendy passes the card, which was so pretty in pink and purple, and Riko kept it on the fridge. I was looking for a ballet studio for her as she always loved to wear tutu.

What an awesome surprise it was for us to receive the email letting us know we'd been chosen as family of the month for PDD. Thank you Wendy and Jeremy! 

We are Anthony, Melissa, Jason (17), Kyle (13) and Kaitlyn Brubaker (11). We're a pretty quiet and laid back family. We moved to Hawaii 4 years ago from Kentucky. What a blessing Hawaii has been for our family! We are so thankful to live here.
