April ’10 Wrap-Up

Posted by Bryce Wend on May 16, 2010

Spring is upon us and it is turning out to be a busy one! 

We kicked off the beginning of April with a number of Easter festivities starting with an Egg Hunt at Mason’s school. 

And they’re off and running (well not quite running)!

This is some exciting stuff!

The next day we went down to Campbell’s Bunnies and Bonnets parade.

We got to see the Easter Bunny riding on a fire truck too.  Has anyone else out there ever wondered why Easter Bunnies are always on fire trucks?

And of course there was candy…

That evening we got ready for a visit from the Easter Bunny, Mason set his basket out on the porch.

And the next morning…

The Easter Bunny came!

In the evening we went over to Aunt Judy’s to celebrate with the rest of the cousins.

Everybody was in their Sunday best.

Even cousin Rose.

Mason was coming up on his 2nd birthday this month.  I was so excited to walk into his room and find him sitting at his table reading.

All that reading may just be paying off!  He even has quite advanced reading taste if I do say so myself!

And he’s been doing a lot of dress-up lately too, mostly involving my shoes.  I’m sure he’ll live to regret this one day…

He doesn’t seem to discrimate when it comes to shoes, he’ll wear anything from espadrilles to work boots.

Oh and we got some other VERY EXCITING news… Baby Girl Wend is on her way!   Our family will be growing to one more come this October!

How is your Spring going?

March ’10 Wrap-Up

Posted by Bryce Wend on April 6, 2010

Here’s a not-so-quick wrap up of what we were up to this last month.

Hershey got a much needed haircut.

And after:

I finally sold my Honda.  What a great car that has been for me, it was a bittersweet day to see it go.


But, I’ve got this beauty to drive around now… and I luvvv it!

We celebrated St. Patrick’s day.  We wore our green.   

And ate a delicious corned beef and cabbage dinner.

We took a trip to Vegas where Chris and Amanda got hitched.

And hosted Patty, Greg and Dylan on their drive back to Washington.

Casey’s been working really hard to finish up his latest project so it was great to spend some quality family time together.

We took an outing to the recently renovated Happy Hollow in San Jose and the kiddos had a blast!

Wow, it’s no wonder it felt like March flew by!

Lauren’s Bubbly Ducky Baby Shower

Posted by Bryce Wend on February 16, 2010

I hosted a baby shower for my good friend Lauren back in December.  I was inspired by a theme I had found on the Hostess with the Mostess website and ran with it.  Here are some photos from Lauren’s Bubbly Ducky Baby Shower!

Check out these adorable cupcakes!
