Jakob's Family Birthday Party

We had Jakob's family party on his actual birthday. Jakob wanted trifle and strawberry shortcake for his birthday cakes, so I made him his own little glass of trifle, which he loved. The boys had a great time playing and staying up way past their bedtime!

Jakob's Birthday Party

Wednesday, Jakob had his kids party at the beach. It was a nice day and the kids had lots of fun playing in the sand and at the playground. Here are a few pictures from our day!

Riding his Bike!

This week Jakob learned how to ride his bike without training wheels. He was very hesitant to learn and it took him awhile to get the courage up to do it. Once he figured out that he could actually ride all by himself, he was off! Now he is so proud of himself and is riding really well.

Levi all tuckered out from riding up a hill.

Jakob's got it figured out!

Fun at Jaden's

Last week we went to visit Jaden and Ethan at their house. We had a great day playing in the yard, swimming at a local pool and enjoying a yummy lunch and cupcakes for dessert!

Jaden has a mini John Deere tractor that Levi loved! He rode it around the yard and in the field.

Thanks Jaden & Ethan for a fun day!

Winnipeg was the last leg of our vacation. We spent 5 days hanging out with the family and having fun. While Amy was busy with Cher's wedding prep, Grandma and Grandpa played with the boys and had a great time.

Here the boys are meeting their cousin Sophie for the first time!

Levi LOVED baby Sophie and wanted to hug her all the time. "She's sooo cute" he would say!

We celebrated Jakob's Birthday a little early with a great dinner and cake made by Grandma!

Just what Jakob had ordered... smarties!

There we are... the Bollman family.
