The Wend Family

Opening our hearts to life’s possibilities

  • Welcome!

    Hello there! You have stumbled upon the personal website of Bryce and Casey Wend.

    While our serendipitus story started on a cold snowy day in Reno, we now call the Silicon Valley home. We are both in our early-thirties working in the construction industry and have recently begun growing our family.

Here’s a collection of photos of what we’ve been up to over the last several months.

Grandma, Grandpa, Oma, Opa and Dylan came down to celebrate.

 

Fun around the house with the motorcycle.

Not to be outdone by her brother, Ryan gave it a try.

Ryan Turns 6-Months

Posted by Bryce Wend on April 16, 2011

We’ve hit another milestone, baby girl is now 6-Months old!  Aside from some teething episodes, she’s an incredibly happy baby right now.  She’s gotten pretty stable with sitting up and we’ve started solid foods.  This girl loves to eat!

Love those eyelashes!

This photo makes my heart sing.  (Both children laughing at the same time is a rarity around here these days.)

Peek-a-boo!

Going for a basket ride…

And in case there was ANY doubt that these two are related:

Coming Out of Winter

Posted by Bryce Wend on March 15, 2011

Here’s a look into our lives the last couple of months. 

We are lovin’ Mason’s imagination right now.  To say that it is blossoming would be an understatement.  On any given day he thinks he is a construction worker, gardener and truck driver.  This is him with his “pack pack leaf bwower and ear muffs”.

The state of baby girl’s hair is getting a little more normal.  I just had to snap up some photos, she’s got a mohawk, bald spot and mullet all in one.  Lucky girl!

We had some playdate visitors, Alicia and Juliette. 

Here’s them in our belly’s 🙂

Did I mention we’re potty training?  Ahh, yeah.  Check back in with us in a few weeks.  It’s pretty messy around here these days.

Spring is coming!  And Hershey has fleas!  Yay!

Bows and ruffles and pink… OH MY!

Mason and Casey making Casey’s favorite Chicken Fried Steak from the Pioneer Woman cookbook.

“Miso Cute” seriously… i … die…. 

We’re bouncin’ now!  Thank God for the stationary babysitter bouncer.  Saving mother’s sanity all over the world one bounce at a time.

Yes, we dress up our cat… don’t you?

My maternity leave ended and I went back to work.  Luckily there was a concrete pour to soften the blow 😉

Ryan has a personal vendetta against this plastic mirror on her playmat.  She can’t keep herself away from it and makes it her daily mission to try and wrestle it off it’s hanger. 

Baby girl has outgrown her bassinet.  Um, maybe we should get Mason out of his crib?

Ryan’s starting to sit up like a champ.  Let’s just hope she puts off crawling for awhile, we want to enjoy the stationary baby stage as long as we can!

And that’s it folks!
