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!

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!

Pumpkin Huntin’

Posted by Bryce Wend on October 25, 2009

This year’s outing to Sea Breeze farm’s pumpkin patch in La Selva Beach was certainly different from last year when Mason was a little under 6-months.   He was all over the place huntin’ for the perfect pumpkin.  We had a blast and it’s great to get together with the Leguillon cousins to see how fast all the babies are growing!
