the stories she tells....

Every night Johnny and I tell Ivy stories about a princess named "Ella." I don't know where that came from...but it is her name. She loves loves loves to hear princess Ella stories, and looks forward to them every night. Recently when we go to bed (yes, we usually all go to bed at the same time) she wants to tell the stories. It is hilarious to lay there and listen to what she comes up with. I think she takes little excerpts of all of the stories we tell her, and combines them into one story. The conflict of her stories always include going to the doctor...which has been the story of Ivy's life lately.

oh the places you'll go...

A couple day's ago we had our draft to see where we are headed for the summer, this year we had a really high pick and ended up getting the city that we wanted the most! We are going to.....................................




and will be 30 min to here:and only a 1.5 hour train ride to here:



We are really excited to go out to this area...we feel so lucky to be able to experience new places, that we normally would not. I have been to all 3 and loved them! Maryland has to be one of the prettiest places ever. Anyway, I cannot wait! I love change....maybe a little too much:) The only downfall is I will miss the birth of kippy and nate's baby GIRL! Yes.... she is now having a girl instead of a boy like they told her!

Last week while ash and I were busy surfin the web, we looked over and saw THIS:
