Ellasode: New Car for my Birthday?

Today is my birthday, which apparently is of great concern to Ella.

Ella (in the backseat, with worry in her voice): “Daddy, you’re going to have to get a new car!

Me: “Really? Why?”

Ella: “Because when you have your Birthday you get bigger, and your head will bump the top of your car!”

I think she’s right…


… and this Mercedes SLR McLaren Roadster is a sensible choice at only $495,000.

It’s reliable and safe, with 0-60 mph acceleration of 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 206 mph.

And it’d be great for my growing head, thanks to its fully retractable top. The SLR Roadster offers open-air driving pleasure that’s practical for everyday use. Even with the top down, conversation is still possible at speeds well over 120 mph, thanks to its superior aeroacoustics.

So I could get Ella to school in a fraction of the time, and still have meaningful conversation… 🙂

Ella’s Birthday Party

Forget gear and church – just enjoy pics of Ella’s 4th Birthday Party…

Big thanks to Papa and Yaya for letting us have it at their house!

And yes, Jennie made the cake – 3 boxes of Duncan Hines and a whole lot of talent!
