|More About Our Family
|Our Special Interests|
We love to travel. We take a least one big vacation every year - typically someplace we haven't been yet. We love visiting Disneyland and National Parks, taking road trips and enjoying a good cruise. We are excited to bring our baby along on these trips! We look forward to making memories with them on day trips and long weekends spent at the beach, and on hikes, too. We're passionate about leaving places better than we found them - for example, picking up litter along our hikes, or leaving a hotel room in good shape.
We're also excited to share our love of animals with our child. We enjoy helping to find homes for pets in need, donating money to those who need it for a pet's surgery and contributing to wildlife conservation. We're excited to teach our child how to enjoy nature and respect it at the same time.
Sports are something we both grew up with. Jeff wrestled and played football. Ashley played softball and volleyball. We love to cheer on the Portland Trail Blazers, Seattle Mariners, Seattle Seahawks, and USA Softball team. We are excited to share our love of sports with a little one.
|More On Our Family & Friends|
We have a strong support network. Jeff's family lives in Washington, including his parents, sister, brother, his brother's wife, and their two kids. Ashley's dad, step-mom, and one of her sisters live in Washington where we also have a good network of family friends we keep in touch with. Ashley had more of her family in Idaho, Minnesota and even in the Pacific islands while the majority of her family lives in Oregon. We have a fun, open, honest, and supportive relationship with our family. We are always there for each other.
We have a wide network of friends as well as several best friends who mean the world to us.
Our whole network of family and friends are excited for us to grow our family. Ashley's parents are thrilled to become first-time Grandparents. Everyone is so excited!
|Our Typical Lifestyle|
We have some favorite family recipes we enjoy regularly and Jeff enjoys cooking up new recipes every-so-often. We are also "regulars" at our favorite Thai restaurant. Ashley enjoys baking and making treats to enjoy at home and to share with neighbors, co-workers, friends, and family. Getting fresh fruits and veggies from local farms is something we always enjoy doing. We like to take the dogs for a walk after dinner most nights, and often imagine what it would be like pushing a stroller along with us, and stopping at the playground for a while so they can play when they're old enough. Watching movies to relax while we snuggle with the pups is something else that we are excited to include our child in. Once baby arrives Jeff plans to work Monday-Friday and Ashley's schedule will allow her to be a mostly-stay-at-home Mama. We look forward to enjoying nights and weekends together as a family.
-Ashley plans to continue her Mom's tradition of making homemade chocolate chip cookies on the first day of school every year. Getting home from school and smelling those fresh cookies is such a good memory.
-Christmas tree hunting and decorating with homemade hot cocoa (actually cutting down our own tree each year)
-Driving around and looking at Christmas lights with hot cocoa and Christmas music
-Homemade cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning
-Homemade pizza for Christmas dinner
-Going to the Pumpkin Patch in October every year
-Making decorations for our home and other crafts to gift to others
-Going to at least one new National Park each year
-We look forward to creating new traditions with our baby, too!
We attend a Christian Foursquare Church about ten minutes from our house. They are a humble group of people, the pastor has a sense of humor, and the children's ministry has a lot of different activities going on!
