We both grew up in small towns and enjoyed spending time running around and playing outdoors. After graduating from high school, Kelly went to vocational school for heating and air conditioning. Angie went to community college for 3 years and then to pharmacy school. We met a few years after high school through mutual friends. We dated long distance for about a year and a half before we got engaged. Our wedding was a couple months after Angie graduated from college. It was outside on a sunny day at the history museum. We just celebrated our 10 year anniversary with a trip to Ireland.
Kelly is a sheet metal installer for a local heating and air company and Angie is a pharmacist at a retail pharmacy. We both enjoy our jobs! A lot of weekends we hang around the house and do projects. Kelly likes to take stuff apart out in the shop and Angie enjoys making stuff to decorate the house and working out in the yard. Kelly makes us breakfast every Saturday and we go to church on Sunday mornings. Some weekends we go out to Kelly's parents’ house to ride the side-by-side on their land. We also enjoy going to the latest action movies with Angie's dad and oldest niece, Alexis.
We also like to go to sports events like baseball, basketball and football games. We want to try to go to a game at every major league baseball stadium. So far we have been to 6 stadiums. In the summer, we like to have BBQ's and take short trips when we can. We also enjoy taking a longer vacation in the spring or fall. We have two dachshunds named Iggy and Sebastian and a lot of outdoor cats.
We built our home 9 years ago and it sits on 3.5 acres just outside of town. It has 3 bedrooms upstairs and 2 full baths. We have a room upstairs perfect for a nursery and downstairs is a room we would like to turn into a play room. We have a 3 car garage that we like to have open in the summer to have friends over to hang out in. We have a large yard that is good for outdoor games and entertaining family and friends. There is a strawberry patch and lots of flowers in the yard; as well as a hammock that we like to take naps on in the summer.
Our neighbors are great and they all have children. The schools in our neighborhood are very good and have small teacher to student ratios. There is a community center close to us that has a really nice swimming pool, playground, softball fields and walking trails. Our church is really close to our house and there is also a playground there. We are close to town, but still kind of live in the country. There are many local festivals and parades to go to throughout the year.
My wife is a very special person. She is very smart and caring and is the best wife that I could have ever wanted. She likes to play games, draw and read books with our nieces and nephews whenever they are around. Angie is very dedicated to her job and takes it very seriously. I love that she makes me stop, relax and enjoy life. She will make an amazing mother!
Kelly is very sweet and considerate. He makes me laugh all the time. He works very hard at his job. He likes to keep busy and does a lot of projects for us and other people. He knows how to fix everything! Kelly is very good with kids and is always entertaining them when we have get-togethers at our house. He's always listening and remembering things and then surprising me with presents and ideas that I wanted to do later on. He makes me dinner when I work late and is very thoughtful. He is the best guy and always finds ways to make things better for me. I know he will be a great dad!
