As most of you know, we have both had our T-shirt designs printed on

What you probably don't know is that there is a national cake baking competition that takes place every year where pastry artists pick one Threadless shirt design to make into a cake!

Out of the literally thousands of designs to choose from we were both shocked and honored to see the following cakes based on our shirt designs. If you want to see more of the baking process click the link below each cake image!

Paul's Packin' it Up!

I think Paul really wanted to take someone with him :) She didn't seem to mind.

Perfect fit!

Multnomah Falls

Paul loved hiking the falls. We went all the way to the top of the waterfall and then hiked up the river which is filled with large rocks to climb on. It was so much fun!

Here we are at the top of the falls at the look out point

We started to make our way up the river, I was a bit slower than those guys :)

It was so beautiful climbing up the river and being able to be all alone, just the three of us.

I was having some troubles...but I didn't get wet!

Paul is here!

On our first morning we walked up to the Rose Garden with Olive. Paul walked Olive the whole time - they are already good buddies :)

We then took him downtown and then to our favorite sushi place by our house, San Sai. He liked it so much we ate there the next day too! I think Portland is growing on him!

Back to Bend!

Renee recently had an art opening at a Wild River Gallery in Bend Oregon. Brian's grandparents just happen to live in Bend and his Grandmother made it out to the opening where Renee was doing a painting demo.

I believe this was Grandma's favorite. It's a fixer-upper, but I'm sure Grandpa is up to the challenge.

We wished Grandpa was there so he could identify this mountain for us...all Brian knew was this it, "Wasn't Mt. Hood"

While in Bend, Brian's Aunt and her family came up to visit from California. Here is a rare picture of three generations of Brian's family! From left to right: Brian, Uncle Bob, Aunt Bonnie, Grandpa, Cousin Daniel, Renee, Olive, Grandma.

One of the main focuses of the visit was to finish this puzzle. Renee was very determined to get it finished before leaving. Some might call it dedication, some might call it obsession. In any case here's the proof that it happened.
