Kepler is BACK!

My dear friend, Julie {Kepler} Lamm, is back in my life and I am thrilled!  Julie and I went to North Park together and always had a lot of fun.  We had the crazy idea of joining the NPC Women's Basketball team our sophomore year (to get the free shoes and trip to San Diego).  We also played soccer together and had many other fun adventures during our college years.  Julie and her family have moved several times since college, but she is now living in Green Bay and she has been to Minneapolis several times.  It has been wonderful to get to know her family and spend time together again!  We hope to go camping with all 8 children (5 Lamms+3 Kraseans).  Now, that will be an adventure!  :)

Minnehaha Falls Hike

The first day of summer break, we took a family hike at Minnehaha Falls.  It was wonderful to explore the creek, falls, and the Mississippi river as well!  The kids enjoyed throwing stones into the river and checking out the sandstone cliffs.  We had the backpack ready for Anja, but she barely used it.  She wanted to do it all herself and seemed to really enjoy all of it.  We can't wait to go back again.  It was a great way to kick off summer break!

An oldie, but goodie about Obama

I'm going through old pictures and videos.  I can't believe how much Gus and Johan have grown up since this video.  Enjoy!

Zeke turns 2!

We were able to celebrate Zeke's 2nd birthday with  him last week.  He loved being the center of the party.  The theme was bugs and you can see how creative my sister is with parties.  The first activity was the kids untangling a giant spider web created with colored yarn.  Each kid followed their own color of yarn until they found their prize.  It was fun to celebrate with our family and church family!
