I have fallen so far behind but I am determined to catch up. Ella is now 10 and becomes more of an amazing person every day! On the actual day of Ella’s birthday, we brought cupcakes to school, picked up Ella and a bunch of her friends and took them to K1 Speed for a fun afternoon of racing! Everyone had a blast and Sunny made another one of her amazing Disney cakes at Ella’s request.
Ella and her friends had a blast. They drove around the track like pros!
After K-1, the Kim-Arena’s came over for some cake.
One weekend later, we flew to Las Vegas to spend the weekend with grandma and papa. We had a really great time. We stayed at the Venetian and Ella had her first “gondola” ride.
Here is a super sweet series of Ella and Grandma in the lobby.
We came home for another week and then headed to Disney World for Ella’s big 10th birthday celebration. Before we left, we got to meet our friend Sheila’s new puppy Olivia. Ella fell in love immediately.
Now for the moment we’ve all been waiting for… our big trip to Disney World! This is gonna be great!
Here we are all ready to take on Disney World. The bracelets are called “magic bands” and they get us into the parks, they are our fast passes, they are our hotel keys and they are our money!

Heading into dinner at Be Our Guest.
Try the grey stuff it’s delicious.
While eating at Be Our Guest, Heather noticed that Josh Gadd (the voice of Olaf) was at another table in the restaurant. Ella LOVES Olaf and wanted to meet him. She went up to him and said, “I’m a huge fan”. He was really sweet and asked her if she wanted to take a picture with him. Pretty amazing!

Check it out – Heather, Jesse, Sunny, Ella and I were in one car (the one with the hands up) and Grandma, Papa, AJ, Michael and Milo were in the other one – very careful riders.
