June 2014

Keyton runs (mostly, he walks) the Capitol Classic. 

Lola makes art.

No one cuts Mads's curly hair because it's so awesome!

Mads turns 2 and the family celebrates at Jump Time.

Mads is pictured here will both his great loves: tucks and the trampoline.

He still can't talk, but he's learning to read.

After 11 years of marriage, I make it to my first Rasmussen Family Reunion in Mink Creek (that's Meenk Crick). It was so beautiful. We took lots of pictures to prove it. . . mostly just these two. Lola and Avery making crafts.

Lola and a slew of cousins her age put on a dance performance.

Lola gives Mads a pedicure.

I had a training for work in Washington DC. Selfies on the Mall!!

Lola and my boss's grandson Kellen came to work with us. They were expert shredders.

Keyton's first backpacking trip

Guest post by Banana:

Larry and I (Banana) took Keyton on a 2 day, 1 night backpack trip. We packed in 1/2 mile from the car to a nice little camp on the North Fork of the Boise River. While there, we showed Keyton all kinds of dangerous activities.
Start of the trip: 12 pound pack.
Dangerous Activity #1: Whittling sharp points on sticks.
Dangerous Activity #2: Making blowguns out of Elderberry stems.
More danger!
Dangerous Activity #3: Cigarette lighters and fire building
Blowguns get the fire going.
Dangerous Activity #4: Roasting marshmallows and general playing with fire.
Dangerous Activity #5: Fishing
Dangerous Activity #6: Dressing like elves
End of the trip: tired but happy.

Nick and I find it therapeutic to throw balls at the kids on the trampoline. They like it too I swear. 

Lola's end of the year program. Just for the record, she dressed herself.

Teachers Gina and Joslin.

So many helpers!

Mads is making of with Marty's raspberries.

Keyton's end of year party shindig - self portrait with himself.

Farmers market before the balloon aliens popped on the bike ride home and Keyton cried. Also, I cannot cut Mads's curly hair - I love it!

Higher Ed day at work

Happy birthday Nick!!
