|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love making new memories and traditions as a family and love being parents. We love traveling and take many family vacations throughout the year. We enjoy seeing new attractions, experiencing new cultures, and trying new foods. We are a family that loves being active and loves the outdoors--hiking, swimming, ice skating, building snowmen and sand castles, and mountain biking to name a few. We enjoy spending time with family and friends and hosting barbecues in our backyard. Mike loves grilling, smoking meat in his smoker, and making homemade pizza. He is loves playing golf and building legos with our boys. Brittany enjoys mountain biking, planting flower gardens, and spending time in the wood shop where she makes many neat signs, puzzles, and decor items. She also loves all animals and hopes to one day own a miniature highland cow. We always look forward to family movie nights with popcorn and ice cream sandwiches as well as playing board games and having dance parties.
We are a couple that loves Jesus, and our faith is the center of our lives. We believe a strong marriage and stable family comes from a solid foundation in Christ. We attend church regularly and participate in weekly Bible studies. Brittany also volunteers in the nursery and toddler programs. We have a wonderful church family! We will teach our children about Jesus and the wonderful plan he has for their lives.
|Our Musical Interest|
Although we may not be very musically talented, we love having dance parties in our living room, and sing karaoke often! We also enjoy singing loudly in the car and listening to many different genres of music. We are fortunate to live close to Brittany’s brother who plays multiple instruments and writes and records his own songs. He even let us record our own song for our wedding, which all the guests loved!
|About Our Home|
Our five bedroom home is located in the country where we get to experience all four seasons to their fullest. There is so much room to run, ride bikes/4-wheelers, go sledding, build forts, and just have fun! Our boys love playing in their new play room. We love that our home is within walking distance of multiple family members including Brittany’s dad, brother, sister-in-law, nephews, and aunt and uncle. Living so close allows for frequent family get togethers and game nights. Our boys love playing with their cousins and we are happy they are all able to grow up together. We all enjoy playing games in our indoor basketball court, and have a weekly basketball night with friends. We also enjoy sharing a small hobby farm with Brittany's aunt and uncle. We just recently added a donkey named Raymond that the kids enjoy riding.
|Our Children||We have been blessed to adopt both our boys, and it has been a joy to watch them grow and learn new things each day. Tyus was born in 2015 and is a social butterfly with a kind heart. He loves legos, riding his dirt-bike, swimming and playing outside. Decklan was born in 2018 and is such a happy little boy. He love puppies, airplanes, snacks, and tractor rides. Both Tyus and Decklan are biracial so sharing and embracing their heritage is important to us, and we promise to do the same for any child who joins our family! They are both so excited to be big brothers!|
|We Live in the State of||Michigan|
|Our Neighborhood||Our immediate neighbors are family members. We are blessed to be surrounded by so many people who love and support one another. Living on 80 acres of land allows us to be active and enjoy nature. Located one mile down the road from our home is a beautiful lake where we swim at the beach, build sand castles and go boating. Our neighborhood also has many beautiful nature trails, bike paths, and parks. We enjoy taking bike trips to the ice cream and root beer station in the summer, and going ice skating/playing hockey on our backyard rink in the winter. Our home is a ten-minute drive from town, our church, and school. Our growing community is very safe and a wonderful place to live. |
