Willy Wonka, cooking, baseball and a trip to Santa Cruz

It’s so hard to believe it’s May already!  Seems like time has flown by.  Ella had her Musical Theatre Works production of Willy Wonka last week.  It was very sweet. Ella did a great job.  There is video at the end of this post of the main songs and Ella saying her 2 lines.  It’s the kind of video that family and close friends will love so I’m sure you will all enjoy it.  We have been to a baseball game since the night with Stella and Juliet and although the Giants are doing much better, they kind of stunk on Saturday night.  Good thing the season is so long.  Ella had a very important “first time” experience on the weekend of Grandma’s birthday…Ella went to Santa Cruz with Emmi and her family and another one of Emmi’s friends.  It was the first time that Ella went away with a family that wasn’t ours and she loved it!
