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!

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?
