Ella's Birthday DAY

Ella was pretty excited when the day of her birthday finally arrived! 
The good news about a summer birthday is that Mike isn't at work and no one has school. We got donuts for breakfast, opened her family presents (including those from Hope and from Meema and Papa) and then headed to try out Top Golf
We have been curious about it since they built the massive structure and finally went. It was a blast!!! The entire family absolutely loved it, so next summer we will have to go more often. In the morning hours the bays are half off so it was reasonable for our family and I loved that you could order food and have cool air blowing on you while you played. Plus, we all had fun trying to earn points for where we hit the balls. It was definitely a fun birthday activity. 
As soon as we got home Ella watched some of her new Full House DVDs before going to play at her BFFs house for a bit. Later that evening Rachel (who Ella loves and admires) stopped by with a cute birthday cake. That night we continued our tradition of the kids getting to stay up until midnight on their birthday and sadly for me Ella made it the whole time...I passed out around 11:30pm. Watching Full House episodes could only keep me awake for so long :-). Overall I would say this August 13th was a perfect day for our newly 10 year old girl!

When Ella stayed with Hope this summer Hope showed her this silly video and Ella thought it was hilarious...which is why this present is so cute between them :-). I put the original YouTube video below as well for your enjoyment :-).
