Happy 4th Birthday Ella Roque Nelson

Happy Birthday today, March 17, 2016, to my youngest daughter Ella Roque. She got her first taste of chicharrones this week and here’s a little poem inspired by her actions this morning. Maybe it was all the flax seeds in the smoothie, whatever, I love this kid so much!
