Our whole Bollman family went to the beach for the weekend. It's about an hour drive to Gimli where there is a beautiful beach and a little playground. The boys loved playing in the sand and swimming at the pool in the hotel.

Here we are! All 10 of us!

What a great week we had in Winnipeg! We just got home from a little vacation to visit family in Winnipeg. The boys had the best week playing and getting Grandma & Grandpa's undivided attention!!

Everyday we went out and did a fun activity in and around Winnipeg. The first day we went to Assiniboine parks new Nature Playground, it was really beautiful.

Lots of interesting things to do and plenty of beautiful flowers in and around the park.

The following day was the splash park!

Playing the piano with Grandma!

Best Week Ever!

The boys claim to have just had the "best week ever!!" And it was pretty fantastic. We had a really busy, eventful week. First we went out to the lake for part of the long weekend, then on Wednesday we met our friends at the WEM Waterpark (super fun!!) Then back to the lake for a birthday party and time spent with great friends!

Jakob and Levi swam out to the yellow dock for the first time. It was a big accomplishment for both of them and they were so proud of themselves!

Jumping off the dock was the best part!

Here they are - Oliver, Jakob & Levi. These 3 stuck together like glue the whole week. Zack tried to join in when he could.

Zack lining up and playing with his trucks.
The boys were invited to Oliver's 8th birthday party. It was a whole day event and it was really fun!

Jakob and Oliver played this game where they would see who would get pushed off the end of the dock first, they both laughed and giggled the whole time!

It rained really hard one afternoon, but after the storm there was the biggest double rainbow!

Thanks Angi & Oli for a memorable week! We had such a great time!!!!

Jumping Through the Sprinkler!!

The boys had a great time jumping through the sprinkler! Jakob and Zack couldn't get enough of it. Levi jumped through a few times and was done. The boys were all finished, dried off and ready to go inside, but Zack was still running through the water. He loved it and it was a bit of a fight to get him to come inside for nap time!
