We are grateful to say that we both have grown up with ‘family’ being something that we hold dearly and find great value in. We were both raised in two-parent households where love was displayed and expressed daily. Our parents always made family a priority which is something they have instilled in both of us.
The type of love that our parents gave us has turned them into wonderful grandparents. Both sets of grandparents are enthusiastically involved in our children’s lives and eagerly await more grandbabies to spoil! We have many nieces and nephews whom we see frequently. We love watching the boys play and develop special relationships with their cousins and we know they will have lifelong friends. We feel blessed to be able to welcome another child into such a loving and supportive family.
We take two big family vacations each year, which is always a highlight for us. Paul’s family spends a week up North on a Lake; swimming, canoeing, and big family dinners are some of the fun things we enjoy up there. Markie’s family spends a week down South, on the beach, where we swim, play in the sand, play games at night, and love to dress up and have dance parties.
