|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We enjoy traveling and having new and different experiences in places that we have never been. Even if we do not go overseas, we enjoy road trips with a nice combination of planned and unplanned activities. There is rarely a trip where we do not learn more about the history of our country and other groups of people. We frequently will go on numerous camping trips throughout the year, sometimes trying different sites. We value this time together or with friends. The trips vary from including hiking and relaxation over the fire to figuring out how to make it through the rain or other inclement weather that arises. Either way, we leave with some good camping stories and enjoyable time.
|Our Musical Interests|
We enjoy a variety of music that goes across the spectrum, from listening to the symphony by attending a Billy Joel and Elton John concert. We also enjoyed seeing other lesser-known bands and listening to dance music, the 80’s and the 90’s as well.
|We live in the state of...|
We live in a private lake community. Our community has many children in the area, and there are family-friendly events at the lake all summer including,cook-outs, camping, fishing, swimming, and canoeing are some of the activities that are right outside our door.

Our neighbors all look out for each other and work to build a safe place for everyone to live and raise their family.
