Golf Date

Last Wednesday Michael and I went on a golf date. We dropped the boys all off at school and went straight to the course. We golfed 9 holes and had a lot of fun, it was a great morning date!

Perogies with Oma

Last week my Oma came over and we made a huge batch of perogies. 240 perogies total! She taught me how to make the dough and the yummy filling. When Zack came home from school, he helped us a little too:

Most of the perogies went straight into the freezer for later and the rest we ate for supper that night. Yum!

Hermann Family Pictures

When we were all together for Jakob's birthday we took a Herman family picture. It's pretty difficult to get 6 kids to sit still and smile :) 
I think they turned out great!!

Jakob's Family Party

We were in Winnipeg for Jakob's actual birthday, so we celebrated a little later this year with my family. Friday we had a party with Jakob's Oma's & Opa's, Aunts, Uncle & cousins.

The room lit up with all those candles! 11!!!

Back To School 2014

It's hard to believe that all 3 boys are in school this year! Where has the time gone?!?

The boys were both nervous and excited for their first day of school.

Jakob - Grade 6, Levi - Grade 3 & Zack - Kindergarten.

Zack was all ready for his half days in Kindergarten.

Grade 3!!

(I couldn't take a picture of Jakob in his class. Since he is in grade 6, they were already put to work helping the grade 1's)

Winnipeg: Part Three

This (very long) blog post will wrap up our time in Winnipeg...

Monday was raining again... so the kids played at home with their cousin Sophie in the morning and then in the afternoon we went to another indoor playground. After the busyness of the weekend, it was nice to have a slower day.

Tuesday afternoon, Grandpa took the boys - Michael, Jakob and Levi golfing.

After supper we went to the Assiniboine Park Nature playground. This is another favorite place of the boys.

After we played for awhile, we walked across the bridge for ice cream.

Wednesday was Jakob's birthday! We went to Stella's Cafe for brunch. Jakob loved his Maple Caramel French toast:

After brunch we went to the Zoo:

There is a whole new section at the zoo that features polar bears. We saw several polar bears.

What a cute little seal!

Part of the new polar bear exhibit, is a indoor ice and polar bear themed playground:

Zack & Sophie reading the maps, figuring out where the kangaroos are:

The highlight for Zack was the butterfly pavilion. He was so gentle and patient with the butterflies. Several landed on his finger.

The butterflies really liked Grandpa!

Jake held a few too!

After the Zoo, we went back to Grandma & Grandpa's for a birthday celebration! Dinner (& of course cupcakes!) with the family.

The 5 Bollmans great-grandkids with Great-Grandma & Great-Grandpa Barber.

That concludes our Winnipeg 2014 summer trip! We had a great time and so much fun!! Thanks Grandma & Grandpa!
