The Swans

Just a few days before Christmas our good friends, The Swans, left Bend. They went back to their hometown of Albuquerque, New Mexico. We were really sad to see them go but are so glad that we got to know them and made tons of great memories with them. We know that our paths will cross again and we still talk to them about once every 2 weeks or so. We sure miss them though. Their son, Elias, is almost 2 years old and was Ayden's best buddy. We have several pictures of Elias on our fridge and Ayden always wants us to pick him up and show him the pictures. He points, smiles, laughs, and talks to the pictures of Elias. It is so stinkin' cute!!! We can't wait to see them at our wedding and meet their new baby girl, Lucia.

Here are some pictures of their last fews days in Bend with us. The mamas and their baby boys

Pictures of the Metolius through Drew's camera

As we all know, Drew is an amazing photographer and I love to share his work whenever I can. Here is our trip to the Metolius with my parents in December through Drew's camera. I hope you all enjoy.

Where did we go??

Wow....it really has been awhile since I have blogged. Sorry everyone. It has been a roller coaster ride lately trying to keep up with everything. Well I am back in the game. My goal is to catch you all up on our life and Ayden and then to keep blogging at least twice a week. He has grown so much since December. So I am going to start with where I left off......the Metolius Trip. I hope everyone is well and we miss you all.
