Dawn is a Sergeant in the NYPD, and Ricky is the Director of Finance for a BMW dealership. We met in 2006 when Ricky worked for Toyota and Dawn was looking to lease a car. The first thing Dawn liked was the honesty and sincerity Ricky showed while helping her to lease a car. While preparing the paper work Ricky shared that he was from Singapore which led to conversations of world travel. We exchanged numbers and began spending time together going to Broadway shows, concerts, and traveling. It wasn't long before we realized that we were meant to spend our lives together and on December 13, 2009 we went to Vegas and got married in The Little White Chapel!
In May of 2012 we were blessed with our son, Teagan. From the very beginning, we approached parenting as a team. We shared the middle of the night feedings, both comfort him after a nightmare, and together nurse him back from the occasional cold or flu. Of course we also share in the joys of his accomplishments; from his first steps, first word, even the first time touching sand. The wonder we see in his eyes as he discovers the world reminds us how excited we are to embark on this journey again with another little one!
On weekends we go to local events, parks or go hiking as a family. We all love to be in the great outdoors and have recently added camping to our weekend time together! We also have playdates and Bar-B-Q's, and travel to different zoos and theme parks for weekend getaways. We even found a near by drive in movie theatre which we love to go to. One of Teagan's favorite activities is going over to our neighbor's pond to catch frogs and watch tadpoles turn into frogs! We treasure these moments together and look forward to enjoying all of these activities as a family of four.
We live in a 5 bedroom home with lots of space to grow and play. We live in a beautiful area on a Mountain, North of Manhattan. We have close to an acre of land with lots of room to run and an area to climb.
