We both grew up in Brazil and met right after high school, 19 years ago. It was love at first sight and each day that goes by we are still falling in love with each other even more. We’ve been married for 13 years and in 2009 we moved to San Diego. When we moved to San Diego, we knew right away that we wanted to start a family. During the summers in San Diego we go to the beach and ride on jet skis and paddle boards. We also love to go on boat rides or just simply build sandcastles and play in the warm water. During the winter we go to the mountains where we love playing in the snow and making a snow man as well as going sledding and tubing. Our weekends usually begin with our kids making their own superhero pancakes, which they love. We then let them choose between going to the beach, museum, aquarium or zoo. We love cooking together as a family and we usually finish off the day by having barbecues and s’mores in our backyard. We love going on international vacation trips to Europe and the Caribbean. Spending time with family and friends is also very important to us. We attend Church every Sunday and it’s important to us as we honor the values of honesty and integrity in our family.
