On May 13, our sweet Ellie turned 5. Where does the time go? It seems only yesterday she was our little baby and we were moving to Germany. Now Miranda is the baby and we're about to leave Germany!
We had a wonderful time celebrating Ellie's birthday. She wanted to go to Mainau Island, which is a beautiful island in the large freshwater lake on the borders of Germany, Switzerland, and Austria. Actually, she wanted to go to the butterfly house there and get a butterfly to land on her finger. After lots and lots of tries...birthday wish granted! We were doubly blessed as our sweet friend, Isabel, was able to skip school and join us. Even though the weather wasn't great, we had a great time celebrating our little blonde sweetie.
