Thanksgiving 2010

Posted by Bryce Wend on December 10, 2010

This year we journeyed up to Washington to celebrate Thanksgiving with Casey’s side of the family.  It was an adventure making the 12-hour drive up North and back but certainly well worth it.  Especially since this was the first time that Ryan was able to meet all her relatives. 

The weather was incredibly cold in the Pacific Northwest during our visit.  We first encountered snow driving through Northern California and then again in Washington while we were there.  Mason had a great time playing out in the snow with Casey and Grandpa. 

Ryan got a chance to meet all of her relatives as well.  She took to her great-grandmother, Oma right away. 

And Uncle Chris…

Aunt Amanda…

And don’t forget her Cousin Dylan…

We celebrated Thanksgiving at Greg & Patty’s.

We had a wonderful time visiting with family, especially now that our family is growing!

Halloween 2010

Here are some photos from our Halloween celebrations this year.  

Our jack-o-lanterns, including one for our World Champion San Francisco Giants!

On Friday we celebrated Halloween at Mason’s preschool parade.

Like father, like son.

Cowboy Casey and his little cow.

Momma Sully with the kiddos.

We spent Halloween evening in our neighborhood taking Mason trick-or-treating and handing out candy at our house.

And since we didn’t get enough sugar throughout the weekend we ended the day with a Frankenstein cake!

Summer Update

Posted by Bryce Wend on July 24, 2010

Life’s been a little crazy round these parts lately.  Well honestly when isn’t it?  All this business of growing a family (literally) and tending to our careers can be a lot to handle sometimes.

Anyway, I wanted to do a quick update on the summer activities since lookie-there we’re already at the end of July!  This is a total random smorgashboard of photos but sums up our lives (well the fun part anyway) over the last couple of months.  Enjoy!
