|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love being outdoors. Whether it is playing with the dogs in the yard, running a triathlon, water-skiing during the summer, or tossing the baseball in the park, we can usually be found outside.
We are a Catholic family who centers our lives around our faith. We believe that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. We believe that centering our lives around our faith is the best way to create a strong moral foundation for life. Each day we try to live out the Lord's commandments and believe that leaning on our faith each day will give us the things we need in life.
|Our Musical Interest|
Music plays a large role in our life. We both grew up playing in bands throughout our youth. Not only is musical performance a large part of our life, but we also enjoy listening to music. Our tastes range from turn of the century tin pan alley, blues and jazz to modern-day country and rock and roll. We spend many road trips testing each other by playing guess the song.
|About Our Home|
Our home is a family ready, multi-story home situated on 1/3 acre. Our backyard is large with a couple of trees and a lovely herb garden. The kitchen opens up to the living room and is great for large family and friend gatherings. There is a back patio which allows for barbecues and crawfish boils.
|About Our Families|
We have a very large, supportive, and close-knit families which live nearby and stop by on a regular basis. Our family is always ready for a reason to get together to play board games, watch a movie, fish, and enjoy some wonderful meals. Whether its a barbecue out in the country on the family land or some boiled seafood out on the lake, we always find a reason to make time for family and enjoy each others company.
|We live in the state of...|
We live in Texas, a state of adventure and excitement. We treat each day as a new adventure and always try to have fun. We have normal 8 to 5 jobs; however, in our everyday lives, we always look for the opportunity to make even the most mundane of things fun and exciting. Whether it's listening to music while cooking dinner, or having a dance party while cleaning the house, we always find ways to keep things upbeat. On the weekends we enjoy a variety of activities which can include anything from hiking/biking and spending time with family to going to the zoo, museums, and local concerts. We are always looking for new adventures to enjoy life.
Our home is located in a beautiful suburban neighborhood filled with many young families. The streets of our neighborhood are lined with large oak trees whose canopies reach from one side of the street to the next. The residents of our subdivision are welcoming, generous, and kind individuals, many with young children. In the evenings, our neighborhood becomes very active with many of the children coming outside to play with one another after school and on the weekends. The area has several play parks which are also frequented by families who love playing on the swing set and tossing around a ball. Just outside of our neighborhood is a 300-acre park with hiking/biking trails, baseball and soccer fields, and fishing ponds.
