|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We enjoy being outside, doing activities such as hiking, biking, and exploring parks. Sporting events, watching a baseball or football game while barbecuing is one of our favorite past times with family. We love trips to the beach and exploring new places.
We are Christians who love Jesus! We attend church weekly and are involved in a parenting life group. Sara works in the preschool Sunday school class every week. We love our church because it is very involved in reaching out to meet the needs of our community. One of our favorite family activities is volunteering at our churches' community outreach events!
|Our Musical Interest|
We usually listen to Christian and worship music.
|About Our Home|
We live in a three-bedroom house in a very diverse neighborhood. We have a fenced yard to play in and, upstairs in our loft, we've created an indoor play space. We live at the end of the street in a cul-de-sac away from busy streets. There are a couple of parks just a short walk away. We live in the suburbs with the amenities of the big city, ocean beaches, and mountain trails all a short drive away.
Our daughter, Hannah, is full of joy and keeps us laughing. She is active and loves swim lessons and gymnastics. She loves to learn and enjoys preschool and Sunday school. She loves playing babies and is over the moon excited to be a big sister!
Kauai is our fur-baby. She is a six-year-old golden retriever and is a great family dog. She and Hannah are the best little buddies!
We are fortunate to have most of our extended family in close proximity to us. We are able to share our lives with each other and celebrate events as a family. Sara's Aunt and Uncle live down the street and her parents are a short drive away. Sara's brother and his family live on the East Coast, but we visit as often as we can. John's parents and siblings live about an hour away. Our families are so excited to welcome your child into our family!
|We live in the state of...|
Washington! We love living in Washington and exploring all the beautiful scenery that our great state has to offer! We are a short drive from the beaches of the Pacific Ocean, Cascade Mountains, and many trail systems that we love to explore. We get to experience all four seasons and the beauty that each season brings!
Our neighborhood is very diverse with many young families. Our neighborhood hosts several family events in the park each year. We are located close to many recreational areas that allow for hiking, biking, and swimming.
