Fun in the Sandbox

A few pictures of the boys playing in the sandbox.
Since we don't have a finished backyard yet we spend a lot of time at my parents house. They have a huge backyard with a sandbox and lots of fun toys for the boys.
We did however get our final grade approval today, so we will be starting to finish our yard. Finally!

P.S. Happy Birthday Amber!! We love you!!

A Beautiful Day

The boys love being outside.
Yesterday we were outside all day and here are just a few pictures from our day.

Jakob has this little dolphin that squirts water, he was trying to get me!

The Pout

Normally Levi is very happy and smiley, but when he pouts it's pretty funny.
I asked him if I could take a picture of him, he didn't want me to and this is what happened. Oh well, he can't be smiling all the time!!

Antique Rocking Chair

The boys got this rocking chair from Great Grandpa Bollman, it was his when he was a boy. It's about 80 years old or so. Jakob loves watching TV, rocking on the chair.

Enjoying the Outdoors

The boys out for a "spin".

Michael finished the deck (other than the railing) and it looks GREAT!!! The boys woke up in the morning and saw the chairs outside and couldn't resist sitting on them first thing.

We Love the Beach!

We have had some really beautiful weather, so every chance we get, we go to the beach!
The boys love playing in the sand and in the water. The playground is close by, so they love running from the water to the playground, back to the sand and then back to the water again. There is never a dull moment with those two!!

New Pirate Ship

My Mom and Dad bought the boys this pirate ship to play with in their yard. The boys love playing pirate and Levi always says "walk the plank, Jakob", in a really low voice. They think the steering wheel and periscope are really fun and they have enjoyed pretending to be pirates.

Hail Storm

We were eating dinner tonight when it started to rain. Within 5 minutes, this is what our deck looked like. I've never seen a hail storm that intense. The boys thought it was pretty cool and wanted to eat the "ice cubes"! After the hail was done, the sun came out and it was beautiful. Crazy weather!!


My mom cut out a batman mask from some material for Jakob. He ran around with it and thought it was pretty cool, even though he has no idea who batman is. He looked so cute!

Michael swung Levi onto his shoulder and Levi giggled so hard. It was really cute!

The Lake: Camp Part 6

Our last day at the lake was Monday. It was so windy and the lake was really wavy. Jakob played in the lake with his net and then he ended up laying on the dock watching the waves roll in. He looked so cute laying there, I had to take some pictures of him!

It rained a little bit on Sunday and the boys had to use their umbrellas. Jakob asked all week if he could use it! Finally the last day they got to use them!!
