Family isn’t defined only by last names and blood; its defined by commitment and by love.
We are the Jungmann family- Joe, Nicki, Charlotte and Zoey. We live in a suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Joe and I met in high school, and we have been together for 14 years, married for 6 years. We are an active family who love to spend time outdoors and together. We enjoy sharing our lives with our families and friends. We live within 30 minutes of both our families, who we are close with. We can't share everything in just a few short pages but we hope you feel our love for each other, our sense of adventure and genuine care for you. We really look forward to getting to know you and including you as part of our extended family.
Charlotte, Charley for short, is our fun, happy and loving 2.5 year old girl. She is outgoing, curious, friendly, and likes to meet and play with others. She has a lot to say and loves to sing! Charlotte can be fiercely independent which we know will serve her well in life. We know she will be a very affectionate big sister; she tucks her babies in for naps with a hug and a kiss! Charley enjoys family meals that include a variety of healthy foods and saying “cheers” several times throughout.
Charlotte is very close with her Grandma Tara who cares for her 3 days a week while we are working. She also loves to spend time with the rest of our family. Charlotte loves animals, including our dog Zoey. She loves being outside, swimming and camping of course!
Zoey is our 3-year-old French Bulldog and another member of the family! Zoey loves EVERYONE, including small children. She is a big fan of truck rides, going to Grandma’s and camping. She can hardly contain her excitement when we are packing up. She loves to soak up the sun and all the love she can from everyone in sight. She enjoys cuddling and chasing balls and squirrels.
In this Family We..
• love big

Home Sweet Home
Love grows best in houses just like this. We have a cozy two-story 4 bedroom, 2 bath home in Blaine, Minnesota. We chose this home because it features an open kitchen, dining, and upstairs living room where friends and family can gather. We spend most of our time in this space and our lower level family room. We have a big farmhouse table where we sit down for meals together. We cook most of our meals at home and Charley loves to help.
We love our fenced in backyard where we can run and play. Our home is surrounded by great neighbors who we spend time with and can always be counted on to lend a hand. We have a gate between the yards so the kids and dogs can play together.
Our neighborhood complements our active lifestyle. We have miles of paths for walking Zoey and riding our bikes. There are 5 parks within walking distance that we frequent regularly. Our community has many activities including a splashpad, beaches, indoor playgrounds and restaurants.
Our families live about 30 minutes north of our house. Nicki’s family lives on a hobby farm with horses, cattle and plenty of room to run!
Meet Joe as Told by Nicki
Joe is caring, happy and friendly. Joe’s smile and laugh are contagious; he’s funny. Joe likes to be social makes connections easily. Joe isn’t afraid to show his love and affection for others especially his family. Joe and I have been together for 14 years and I have seen him become a lot of things- a beloved friend, passionate coach, mentor, and husband, but my favorite is a Daddy. Joe is such a loving, involved, thoughtful and playful parent. It makes my heart swell to see the relationship he has with Charley and I can’t wait to watch him to continue to be the best Daddy to all our children. Joe is a great partner in parenting and in all of life’s adventures together. Joe is passionate about nutrition and exercise for healthy living, and helping others to live their best lives.
Meet Nicki as Told by Joe
If I were to describe Nicki's personality in one word it would be selfless. For as long as I’ve known Nicki she has always been more concerned with the needs and wishes of others than with her own. Nicki is an adventurous person. She loves the outdoors, camping, and finding new and exciting things to do as a family. Nicki is a very resourceful person. She takes it upon herself to learn as much as possible about everything from marriage and parenting, to crafting. Nicki’s patience is admirable. She navigates through stressful situations as a parent with ease.
