This girl is a hoot!  She is getting so big so fast - lately she has really seemed like such a big girl.  She's still a huge daddy's girl.  she loves doing anything her brothers do and if she's not, trust me, you will hear about it!  She just started ballet and had her second class tonight.  She started a new preschool a few weeks ago and LOVES it!  She loves playing with all the neighbor girls, especially Nora.  She went to Nora's house for an hour while Keith and I were both gone and she thought she was a pretty big deal.  She told me she wasn't even going to be shy.  She does awesome sleeping in a big girl bed, but has turned into a super grump in the morning.  Her hair has gotten super long, I think I am finally ready to give it a trim.  She's been really into eating cherries lately!  She loves riding around her little motorcycle most.  She's a total dirt bag and NEVER wears shoes, none of my kids do.  I have no idea why???  Overall, she's been quite silly!  

This is her potty chart, we were having the hardest time with her pooping her pants all the time, this one worked!!! I told her when she filled it she could get a new bike.  

I let her read in bed for a while, she usually gets up and shuts off the light- this night she must have fallen asleep mid book.

This girl only wants to wear dresses - she did not get this from me!  


She loves her "pack back"

First day she got her new back pack she loaded it with ... food!

We took her to toys r us to pick out her new bike.  I tried to talk her into this one - but a frozen bike it was!  She absolutely was a no go on this one.

She built "Polk City" one day.

If you are a kid around here you would probably agree that Adventureland is the bomb!  Well, sorta.  I'm still a little ticked at them for taking out one of my all time favorite rides - THE LOG RIDE!  It's such a great first roller coaster for kids.  And it's awesome.  Bad call on a lands part.  My work did an employee day, which worked out great since it's a bit pricy to get in these days since they added the water park.  And it poured right when we pulled into the parking lot.  Luckily the weather cleared up for a great day.  

Looks happy???  She was a stumbling mess by the time we made it home!

First stop - THE GALLEON.  They better not take this out or I may have to boycott.  I love doing this ride with the kids because they laugh and laugh and laugh.  We went about 5 times.  We also took Olivia, I should have done a video because as we went up and down it was smile, frown, smile, frown:)

Olivia loved the Green Frog Hopper.

At this point she remembers having a really good time.  Second time didn't go as well.

Carter got a little bit of fear in him this year.  He wasn't loving life during the Dragon and chose to skip the Tornado.  Dylan was good to go - still no fear for him.  

It looks like I didn't take any pics at the waterpark.  

And this never happens!  

And Olivia's first and last trip on the log ride.  I love this picture!!!

Another great Bormann Family Reunion

We had a great time at the Bormann Family Reunion this year.  The kids loved staying in the hotel, playing with their cousins and running around the farm.  Friday night we went to the Algona park!  

We were so excited to see Adam, Sarah, Oliver and Kasper!  One afternoon Dylan decided he would be Kasper's buddy and took him all over the park.  Not too often my boys do that, so it was quite sweet to see.  

We made a visit to the Algona pool.  First Must do after passing the swim test.... straight to the high dive.  Not the smaller one, to the really high one!  NO FEAR!!!  Then they were doing flips off of it.  Which really was not a great idea and Dylan ended up doing a huge belly flop and was really hurting. New Bormann Rule:  No flips off the high dive!  I think all agreed!

Dylan's stomach from his belly flop.

More fun at the farm - they had a little zoo, which the kids loved.  Carter is such an animal lover.

This looks sweet, huh.  About two minutes later I saw Olivia lick her hand:(

Little drive in movie!  how fun are these little cars.

Until Next year!!!  And surely I have some pics with Grandma Bormann on my iPhone pics!!!
