Summer of 2011

Where does the time go? I say that a lot lately...

Abby is in 1st grade. Mac is about to turn 4. Finn turned 2 and Jack is almost 6 months old!!!

The summer was fun! We had a family trip to Utah and Montana and we had a blast. We wished we could have stayed much longer, but the bills have to get paid somehow! We toured temple square with the kiddos and that was so very neat. Uncle Spuddy hung out with us for a couple days and it was really nice. Uncle Spud was a great helper to us and Mac LOVES uncle Spud. Which is saying a lot because usually Mac doesn't say a lot! We went down to Cedar City for Great Grandpa's 80th birthday. Great Grandpa is the sweetest man ever and we so enjoyed the time spent with the Rasmussen side of the family. Jack was blessed in Grandpa's ward on Grandpa's birthday, so thats fun. After the reunion and birthday party we drove something like 18 hours to get to Hamilton Montana. We had a nice pit-stop at James and Lyndsi's adorable new home in Twin Falls and wished we could have spent more time. The kids actually did fabulous in the car, thank goodness for a DVD player!! Hamilton was beautiful and peaceful and it was so nice to be in the Wischmeier home. We celebrated Finn's birthday, we ate lots of yummy food and we got to spend time with both sets of grandparents! HEAVEN!!

The rest of the summer was spent pent up inside the house because it was so stinkin' hot. Even the swimming pool is disgusting...it feels like a nice warm bath! Oh well..here's looking forward to the fall!!
Jack is growing and growing and he is the sweetest thing on the planet. It's safe to say that I kiss him at least a thousand times a day. EASY.
Finn is hilarious and super athletic. He will seriously play catch and shoot hoops with you for an hour straight. He also is an amazing helper.
Mac is tender and sweet, but is also getting a little more spunk in him. His vocab is really growing and he has the world's cutest voice. He loves all things batman, wii and legos.
Abby is beautiful and loving. Can't beat that! She loved playing with her cousin Madison this summer in Utah and also loved playing basketball at the YMCA. She's enjoying school, and pretty much any sport!

Life is busy for Mom and Dad. Most times it's all we can do to even look at or kiss each other before 9pm everyday. But we're making it work! We both adore and love our kids desperately and we wouldn't have it any other way.
