After a Sunday dinner or Friday night campfire, we often think to ourselves how happy we are that our families have blended so well to become one. Hanging out with our family is easily one of our favorite things to do, especially on the weekends when we have free time.
Carrie’s parents live only about 20 minutes away and are an active and supportive part of our life. Carrie’s grandparents live about 20 minutes away as well. Family has always been important to Carrie; she was brought up having Sunday dinners every week with aunts, uncles, cousins and grandparents. We hope to continue this Sunday dinner family tradition as we grow our family.
Michael’s parents live within walking distance of us, and are a very big part of our life. His grandparents also live about 10-15 minutes away from us. They are always up to come over for dinner or a little get together. We are very lucky to have this strong family system to love and support us so close to home.
Our family would not be complete without our fur-baby, Nessie, who is eagerly awaiting to be a big sister! Nessie has been around kids and infants a lot as we have some younger cousins on Caroline’s side of the family and a few friends with young children as well. She is a gentle giant that mainly enjoys cuddles and sunbathing.
