Family Love in Vegas

Posted in: Family, Us- Sep 16, 2012 2 Comments

We went into Vegas to spend the weekend with the Bollman family….a lot of them!  Grandma Jan and Grandpa John were in town also in celebration of G’pa’s 92nd birthday next week. We arrived late on Friday night, but got enough sleep so we were all ready for Burke’s morning fun on Saturday.  He just […]

Aunt Erika was in LA this past week for a workshop, and so we convinced her to come visit us for the weekend! YAY! She arrived on Friday night, and we kept Burke up for her arrival.  He said his hellos, and promptly went to bed after.  The three of us adults got comfy and […]

Friday morning came early at the Bollman household…around 6am for Mommy and Daddy, who had to pack still for our 7am departure. Unfortunately, that meant that Autie and Loralyn were up and on the road at the same time too. Both families were headed to Northern California. We were off with some of the ShowIt […]

Autie and Loralyn came to visit us for a few days this week and we had a great time. The pictures will do most of the talking…but I’ve got a few words to share too. 🙂 The cousins started to have fun as soon as they were together. Tuesday morning found us at Goleta Beach […]

My Mom & Dad were in OR this past week for a RROC event, and so on the drive home, they made a pit stop in SB to see their favorite Californian grandson….and well, me and Brett too, of course. They drove all the way from Medford, OR on Sunday, and didn’t even stop for […]

Family Fun in Sacramento :: July ’12

After traveling for 6 hours and 20 minutes driving, we pulled into Sacramento at around 115am Friday night (Saturday morning).  Burke had a rough time making the transition, so Mommy and Burke were up until about 3am, but then we all got some nice rest to be able to wake up totally cheery for a […]

Water Park to Beat the Heat

On Monday in Vegas, Daddy had to work (boo) but it was the perfect day for some of us to head out to the water park.  It was another 100+ day so the water didn’t feel cold at all, and was totally refreshing. Burke actually had a pretty good time too, which was super fun. […]

Happy Birthday Ethan

Ethan’s party was so much fun for all – the little ones and the big ones too!  Jen’s mom, Judi, had a big part in making all the details of the party come together.  She’s definitely got a knack for it…just like she did for Jen and Jake’s wedding a few years ago. When they […]

Carnival 2012

As if we hadn’t already done enough in celebration today, we thought it’d be a fun idea to head over to the SB Carnival for a few hours before bedtimes.  While we probably should have just sat down, relaxed and gone to bed early…I’m glad we didn’t.  The carnival proved to be a lot of […]

The Bollman clan came in from Vegas on Friday night and arrived after Burke fell asleep.  We had a nice time catching up, eating brownies, and then decided to go all get some rest for the big day! Yes, the big day.  Saturday, April 28th…otherwise known as the day of WAY too many activities.  Of […]
