|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love to travel to different parts of the world, immersing ourselves in the culture, traditions, and food. We learn so much about ourselves and others by experiencing the different ways people live, work, and enjoy life. Our favorite memories are derived from our travels.
We enjoy spending time with our family, especially taking care of our two nieces. Through playing games, reading books, coloring, cooking lessons, and helping with homework, we do our best to help them develop good habits while having fun.
We like to spend time going out to try restaurants, walking in our scenic neighborhood, hiking in the local mountains, enjoying a movie in a theater, attending concerts and musicals together, and taking scenic drives.
We are faithful Catholics who actively participate and attend Mass in our local parish. Brian is the principal of a Catholic High School, has taught Theology, and is a lector (reader) at Sunday Masses. Massiel teaches CCD and has volunteered on different committees at the parish.
Faith is at the heart of our marriage and it is God who strengthens and sustains us in our loving relationship.
Prayer is a very important part of our lives. We have a room dedicated to prayer with a small altar where we pray every day. We are devoted to praying the rosary together daily, a prayer devotion that strengthens us in our faith and sustains us in our marriage.
|About Our Home|
We live in a three-bedroom home with one room that is specifically set aside for your child. The home is kept clean and includes an outdoor area with grass, a garden, and a patio. We will always have a supply of games, puzzles, crayons, building materials, and educational toys for your child.
There are a number of family-friendly parks, playgrounds, and pools available for recreation as well as a beautiful natural setting that includes the beach, a lake, and mountains all within 20 minutes of our home. Our town also hosts family-friendly activities and festivals that take place on a regular basis. There are many kid-friendly activities within a 45-minute driving distance of our home as well, such as a zoo, an aquarium, a water park, a carousel, and an interactive children’s science museum.
