We met at an outdoor wedding and went on our first date the next day. We knew it was meant to be and almost 2 years to the day of when we met, we were married. We had a beautiful wedding with all of our friends and family supporting us.
Our son, Jase is 6 yrs. old and so much fun to be around. He is full of laughter and a loud, busy kid. Ashlee left her job of 15 years in October of 2018 to help Chris with his business. We are fortunate Ashlee can be a stay-at-home and extremely grateful our family was in a financial position where she could make this career change.
As a family we love to travel and visit new places. We love baseball and we are huge San Francisco Giants fans. Jase I currently experiencing his first broken heart since Madison Bumgarner was traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks.
We frequent our local Farmers Market often, which is held on Thursdays, where we can purchase fresh produce, vegetables and flowers. During the summer, we love 'Concerts in the Plaza', which hosts local bands in the center of our town. We often bring our dinner and sit on the grass, while we listen to music and visit with our friends.
Chris’s parents live near a local lake so we spend a good amount of time on the lake boating and floating. We live about 10 minutes from several beaches, and we love to eat breakfast, walk our dog and play in the sand at the beach.
We live on a cul-de-sac in an area known in our town as the ‘banana belt‘ because it is typically warmer then the rest of the town. We have a street full of young kids who run around barefoot, riding bikes, collecting rocks, having nerf gun fights and swinging on the swing in our front yard.
We have a seasonal creek in our backyard which flows half the year after it rains and the kids spend countless hours fishing and building dams trying to stop the water in their rain boots.
We live near a newly remodeled park, the local semi-pro baseball stadium and lots of bike trails.
We spend a lot of time in our backyard hosting barbecues or social events with our friends. Chris is known for his cooking skills and our friends quickly accept an invite over when they know Chris is barbecuing.
"Ashlee has a very contagious smile and I love her very much. She loves being around her friends and family and she is very outgoing. When she sets her mind to something, she is dedicated to it, which I find very attractive. Ashlee is my biggest supporter and she makes me want to be a better person and a better father. She is a devoted wife and mother and she makes life memorable and easy."
"Chris has the ability to talk to anyone, about anything. He has never met a stranger and will typically leave places with a new friend. Chris is funny, loud, a kid at heart, warm and open. He is the provider for our family. He works very hard to make sure we have everything we need and then some. He is very close to his family, whom he gets his sense of humor from, and he is a great son and brother. I couldn't imagine my life without him in it."
