|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
Both of us love to read and learn. We try to make this a family activity by choosing books we'll both love so that we can discuss them afterward and teach each other what we have learned from them.
Both of us enjoy outdoor activities as well like camping and hiking and try to go as often as possible. In addition, our time growing up and living in Alaska has given us a great appreciation for skiing. This year, we plan to go on a ski trip with friends to Colorado. We also enjoy traveling to see the sights and visit friends.
Finally, Chris is still active in the civilian flying community and has been getting Anne involved too. While she still doesn't have her own private pilot's license, she has completed ground school so that she can eventually learn to pilot a plane as well!
|Our Musical Interest|
Anne grew up in a musical family with a grandfather who was a high-school band teacher. She learned to play both clarinet and saxophone and still enjoys both. In fact, just this Christmas she helped our nephew learn more about playing clarinet, an instrument he just started on this year. She would love to eventually play clarinet for a community theater or band to keep her skills sharp and enjoy music with others. Chris played trumpet in his high-school band and loves going to concerts.
|About Our Home in California|
We live in a beautiful two-story four-bedroom home in a quiet community. We have a pool in the backyard which we love to use all summer long. Last Thanksgiving we even heated the pool so our family and friends' kids could use it all day while we prepared Thanksgiving dinner! We love sitting by our fireplace in the winter and watching a good movie or reading a good book.
We have one beautiful adopted daughter named Parker. We adopted Parker on the day she was born and she's been such a blessing to us. She is such a happy and inquisitive girl and she's so excited to show off all she's learned to a little brother or sister!
|We live in the state of...|
California, and we love it! After moving around every two to three years in the Air Force, we've now settled in Central California and could not be happier. We've been so blessed to live in a community filled with kind, outgoing people who are happy to help at a moment's notice.
We live in a quiet neighborhood within close walking distance to schools and parks. The largest sports stadium in town is less than two miles away and there are multiple playgrounds around town for kids to enjoy. A network of trails connects the parks which we love. Our neighbors are all very friendly with children of all ages living in the area.
