Halloween 2010

Posted by Bryce Wend on November 13, 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.

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!

Mason Turns 2

Posted by Bryce Wend on May 19, 2010

Well it’s official, our little man is now 2-years old! 

His actual birthday fell on a Tuesday this year, so we started him off with a special breakfast of waffles with syrup.  He got cupcakes at preschool and when he got home he headed straight for his presents. 

Then it was time for cake.  We all thoroughly enjoyed his ice-cream cake from Coldstone Creamery, boy was it a good cake.  Delish.

He went straight in for the chunk of cookie dough.

And about 10 seconds later, got a major case of brain freeze. 

But he recovered and proceeded to get his fifth sugar high of the day.  After all, that’s what turning two is all about!

The following weekend we went down to the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk to celebrate with friends and family.

Happy birthday to our baby boy who is growing up right before our eyes.
