Don't mind the FIVE shirt above. Palmer wanted to wear this on the eve of his sixth birthday because "it's the last day I can wear this shirt!"
Palmer is very kind to his sister- always making sure she is taken care of and quick to help her with any needs she might have.
Palmer has a great imagination and comes up with clever contraptions and inventions on a daily basis. He is always quick to show me his newest "Lego creation" and his problem-solving is often very entertaining...
Overall, Palmer is a very laid-back kid who is interested in everything and easily adaptable to any situation. He is go-with-the-flow and makes his own fun wherever we go.
Birthday photo with Mr. Elephant:
(To compare from last year, here is Palmer at the age of five...)
Height: 3'9", 58th percentile
Weight: 53 lb, 84th percentile
Palmer enjoys riding his bike and scooter, playing outside, snow skiing, swimming, tennis, rock climbing, and anything else you throw his way.
The whole family enjoys playing golf and tennis. Palmer is pretty comfortable in both arenas.
Palmer likes to learn and read about Ninjago, Star Wars, space, Lego, science, and Power Rangers.
He enjoys solving puzzles, playing math games on the iPad, Legos, and has spent hours lately with Rick trying to solve the Rubik's cube.
George the Monkey is still a best buddy along with imaginary friends Johnson and YoYo. Palmer recently made this birthday poster for George's birthday! :)
Palmer, we love you so much and couldn't imagine this world without you. Happy birthday!

The drive to get here was so funny because we rambled along an isolated and unpaved neighborhood road for quite awhile. Then out of nowhere, the earth dropped below us.
We hiked down the rocky path towards the river.
Another fun trip attraction was on the 11-hour drive to the mountains. Along I-40/Route 66 highway in Amarillo, sits the eclectic art exhibit of "Cadillac Ranch".
Palmer couldn't believe his luck when some visitors shared their cans of spray paint so that the Jordans could contribute to the art...
Needless to say, we got our kicks on Route 66.And Rick needs a selfie stick...and selfie lessons.

Upon arrival, we learned that the lifts were shut down due to high winds. Palmer and Grace took advantage of the empty mountain and got in some pretty great sled rides.
Palmer and Rick decided to map out their ski runs on this trip.
Rick was thrilled that Palmer skied with him on the backside of the mountain.
Meanwhile, Grace had a ball in the wintry wonderland. She loved sledding, playing in the snow, and eating the snow.
Grace's expression here cracks me up. The winds were very high and she was pretty chilly.
I think it's safe to say that Grace will be ready for ski school next year. Grace was so hilarious when we went into the warming hut after her ski debut. She literally stayed frozen in this position for about 10 minutes. I couldn't help but laugh. Little gal was cold to the bone and worn out.
