october celebrations

Hello everyone, i'm not dead. I have been busy starting a business (more on that later) and also haven't had many photos to post until now. So conference weekend Emily & Ryan and clan came down to san jorge. We had lots of fun, sorry heidi, not as good as you are at taking pics, but we got a few cute ones. Below Taylor is getting ready to hook these wild beasts up to a carriage, so she can be a princess in her very own bullmastiff drawn carriage.What fat heads Cleo and Terra are, and look how cute tiggy taylor looks between them, i think this is my favorite pic of taylor ever.Here Tay is working on her best Cesar Milan.One big cyber high five to anybody who can file through their hendo blog photo memory and figure out what these colorful play things are that kept jordan, taylor and kate occupied during conference. I'll give you a hint, they were not meant for the below purpose.Cleo models what is closer to their intended purpose

We hung out, played games, attempted a puzzle, had a fire and s'mores, delish!

Cute family

Steve and Katers, we still might steal her and call her our own, don't tell ryan and emily

Then the birfday celebrations began. We went to uber yummy and filling Brazil Steakhouse for a birthday eve celebration with our partners in crime the Bergquists. Aaron and Steve both served missions in Brazil so this restuarant holds a special significance for the Bergies and Hendos. We always joke that if we were to bring anybody else here it would be considered cheating.

The tradition in our family is that we do breakfast in bed on birthdays, well steve thinks that's messy and complicated, which it can be, so in honoring the birthday boys request he got breakfast at the bar.Steve worked a half day, we met for delicious Capriottis thanksgiving sandwiches for lunch, i headed back to the coal mines, and from what I'm told steve played the wii and chillaxed most of the afternoon.

Then we went to the driving range, this is the only part of the game of golf i enjoy, i like hitting things hard, so that works for me.

Could he be any cuter? If there were a contest for hottest barely turned 30 year old, steve would win, like without even trying.

Happy 30th to my best friend.

... and the celebrating is continuing through october, don't even worry, you know how we do. next weekend we are hitting up vegas to do some more celebration station!

"Partners in crime".....I love it!!! Next it's a trip to Brazil! And I totally knew what those colored things are; I thought you were going to have us go back and guess which puppy Terra was by the color. Happy B-day again to Steve-o. And Steve-o was his name-o. S-T-E-V-E, S-T-E-V-E... Have fun in Vegas! Remember I'm ready to dog walk any time! =)

happy belated b-day to Steve! I love this post... the fact that your new business involves a coal mine, the cute girl posing quite lady-like on the CANADIAN chairs (love to see those in action), and the names Hendos and Bergies. I LOVE YOU! Can't wait to hear and see how Vegas was!
