We love to get outside as much as possible hiking along the Green Ribbon Trail or in Wissahickon Park, biking, hiking, and playing in the creek. Connor loves to feed the ducks and skip rocks in the river. Another one of our favorite places to visit as a family is the zoo. Connor’s favorite activity there is feeding the giraffes.
Spending time at our local swim and tennis club has provided us with a wonderful sense of community. It is a great place for children to swim, swing on hammocks, play tennis, basketball, volleyball, and play on the playground.
We believe that a meaningful life is more than just doing something to better yourself. It’s about doing something to better your community. We enjoy running in and supporting events for charities like the 9/11 Memorial Fund and Autism Speaks. Giving back to the community is very important to us. We also do volunteer work with the local community soup kitchen and Habitat for Humanity.
One of our biggest passions is traveling. We’ve been to Costa Rica, Greece, England, Spain, and Austria. We look forward to bringing another child with us on these adventures to learn about other cultures and traditions. Every winter, we rent a house in the Pocono mountains with Craig’s family so that the cousins can go sledding and skiing together. Next up on our travel itinerary are a few vacations to different national parks across the country. We hope the children enjoy the beauty of nature as much as we do. We also love the quality time that travel provides us to bond as a family.
