Dear Mallory, You are 8 months…woohoo!!  You are!!  Mal Gal, you are such a delight in our Bollman Bunch. You continue to teeth and put everything in your mouth.  When you’re not in a carrier, and left to your own devices on the ground, we have to keep an eye on you so closely […]

We had a whirlwind weekend in Sacramento to visit with family and be part of the celebration for Grandpa John’s 95th birthday!  We got in around 1030 on Friday night and so after some rest, and a yummy pancake breakfast, we were off to explore.  Lesley recommended Southside Park near downtown and it was a […]

I was lucky to take some school pictures for the kids in Blake’s class.  They were adorable and so perfectly preschool-ish.

Thursdays are my Favorite by Annemarie

I remember always loving Wednesday afternoons two years ago.  It was the time when I would have my big girl camera out and be taking Blake’s weekly photos, and Burke would be involved in the process and I’d ultimately end up with some pretty fun photos of the three of us. Well, this year, two […]

I can’t believe that it’s already been a year since we went to this same picnic with these same people in 2014. I was so glad that someone (not me!) was thinking and alerted us to put it on our calendars (thanks Jen!!!). We got there a little later than everyone else, but they were […]

It was Burke’s second ever First Day of School today.  He started Room Two at Providence, which is the 4 and 5 year olds.  We didn’t get in bed as early as we’d planned last night so this morning when I popped in at 7am, he wasn’t ready to get out of bed just quite […]

Dear Mallory, You are SEVEN months and SO.MUCH.FUN.  You are FULL of smiles and anyone that meets you asks if you might just be the happiest baby ever. Well, I think you might just be.  The only time you’re not really just a ball full of giggles is if you happen to wake up and […]

Went out in the backyard with Remi this afternoon to take Mallory’s 30 week picture (a day late) and before we even got started, Blake was laying down on the fabric expecting his picture to be taken.  Then Burke was on his way over, and we had to make room for baby sister.  She looked […]

Brotherly Competition by Annemarie

The other night we were in the backyard and the boys were fighting over who’s turn it was on the Plasma Car.  For some reason, this particular toy has gained popularity with the boys, maybe since they’ve both gotten the hang of it and got themselves going pretty fast on them.  Well, I had more […]
