We met several years ago at a summer camping party. This was a weekend long event and we spent the weekend talking, walking, laughing and getting to know each other. We married four years later and have been together ever since.
Being we met outside, the outdoors, summer, the water, cabin life, etc...are all things we enjoy and have incorporated into our family life and will continue to incorporate as our family grows.
We enjoy the simple things and make a conscious effort not to take a single moment for granted. As a family we like to cook meals together, play games, arts and crafts, play outside, walk the dogs, ride bikes, swim, campfires, read books, color, watch movies, music, carnivals, visit family, volunteer, etc.
Our home is safe, secure, full of love....and toys. We love to play...our dogs have a lot of toys, our daughter has a lot of toys, We embrace this part of our home as long as we aren't stepping on any tiny pieces (ouch).
We live in a great location with excellent schools and many nearby stores and restaurants, parks, library, hospitals, dentist. Great neighbors, good community, low crime.
Sandy is fun, hard working and energetic. She tries to find a good balance between work and play.
When you hear laughter, you will find her. Many times she is the source of laughter and her laugh is contagious. She really does try to find the fun in most things.
She approaches parenting with that same sense of humor and playful attitude. She also has an amazing level of patience in most situations. Her personality is also of a nurturing nature. She doesn't focus on perfection, but more on doing your best in what you are doing and being okay with your best.
Nobody is perfect and there are appropriate times to be serious. Her loving nature should not be mistaken for being a pushover.
Tony is fun loving, creative and a gentle soul. He loves to get in there and do all he can to help with something. He loves putting things together, teaching new skills, playing all kinds of games. He is very hands on and approaches parenting with that same giving and fun loving spirit.
He also focuses on doing a good job or giving things your best effort and not getting hung up on being perfect or striving for perfection with anything. He has a very good sense of humor and is really creative with play time.
