World's Okayest Reunion

Brett and I were in charge of the reunion this year.  This is the first reunion flyer we sent out:

2016 Rasmussen Family Reunion

World’s Okayest Reunion

3:00- Check-in
Probably do a little arguing over who stays where
Bring food for your own family’s dinner that night
Play some reunionish-type games

July 12
Bring breakfast for your own family
Have kids run some races, adults eat licorice and chat
Eat some lunch
Chat a lot; little kids go throw rocks in river, run wild; older kids get bored
Some kids probably get hurt and/or get in fights
Eat some dinner
More chatting and maybe toss a ball around
Stay up late playing more reunionish-type games

July 13
Bring breakfast for your own family
Some kids go play outside in the river again, others steal some technology and hide away with it
A few more kids end up hurt, all end up dirty
Someone throws up
No dinner this night because throwing-up moves to everyone else and no one wants to eat
Lots of throwing up, mopping, laundering, etc.

July 14
Breakfast for any recuperated enough to eat it
Those who aren’t sick or wily enough to get out of it clean up
12:00- Check-out

It’s going to be great!  (Or at least okay!)  Hope you all can make it!

It was pretty well received.  ;) And for a LOOONG time after that, anything I posted on our family website only ever elicited an "that's pretty okay."

Later we sent out the real documents.


I think the picture below is L-R Danica, Katelyn, Little Megan, Miriam, Olivia, Brett.

Sweet little Navy.

Rasmussen Family Portraits

The following few posts will be our family reunions in Utah.  The Rasmussen reunion was first, and actually, the very very first thing we met for was family pictures.  All these (except the last two I think) were taken by Dani Christensen.  I was pretty sad that in all the hullabaloo I didn't get to curling Hazel and Ethne's hair, nor putting mascara on them, which I like to do for portraits.  But all's well that ends well.  And it ended with Oreos.  :)

Our family.

Our whole family.

The original family.

The four oldest grandkids with the four youngest.

Hazel's crowd.

5-year-old crowd.

The three E's.  (Emeline, Ethne, Elena)

Three E's plus Cass.  :)

Oldest set.

All the teenagers.

Me and Wyatt.


Sisters.  Lindsay is TOTALLY cheating and standing on her tiptoes, she is actually several inches shorter than me.  I am really sad, however, that we didn't take a picture of ALL the sisters, including sister-in-laws.  :(  By this time though, some people were really done and trying to get out of there, so we'll have to do it next time.

 Handsome guy with an adorable baby.

This was Derek showing Amy that he was indeed going along with the color scheme.  :)

A few other beginning of July things

After the fourth of July, Jethro went off to Scout camp and Hazel went off to Girl's camp for a week, so the house was pretty weird without them. Not that I really remember.  That's what happens when you blog six months later.

Rain jumping.

Bikes on the tramp, because that's not a recipe for disaster or anything.
