|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
One of the most enjoyable things we like to do as a family is visiting new places and exploring nature. Our daughter particularly enjoys splashing around in creeks and pointing out the animals she sees on our walks. We feel very fortunate to have so many close by places to explore like mountains, waterfalls, trails, caves, beaches, and state parks. Our hiking shoes have gotten their fair share of use and we look forward to putting on your child’s first pair as they go on their first adventure with us, though some of our best adventures have been right in our backyard.
One of the things that first drew us to each other was our shared faith. We both grew up in the Church and credit both our parents and mentors within our church growing up as being very formative in our faith journeys. Our family values are founded in God’s love and grace and we look forward to teaching our children about our faith. We attend a wonderful local church a few miles from our house.
|About Our Home|
We live in a beautiful two-story 5 bed/ 4 bath single-family home on 1.5 acres of land. We have a room already picked out for the nursery and another picked to be a playroom. We have a large backyard with a swing set and a fun hill that we enjoy playing on. We also have an area off to the side for making campfires and roasting marshmallows. S’mores Yum!
Family is very important to both of us. Every year we get together with either or both sides of the family for Christmas, Thanksgiving, or Easter to share in some extra special family time. On Lauren’s side, the family gets together every other year for a vacation often centered around outdoor activities or for a long weekend trip on the other years. On Orlando’s side, the family gets together for a vacation somewhere active like an amusement park, a beach, or a cruise.
