|More About Our Family
|We live in the state of...|
Alabama. We are surrounded by lush, green, rolling mountains and breath-taking views. We have so many options for nearby adventures such as hiking trails, petting zoos/farms, parks with playgrounds, a kids discovery and science museum, local zoo, botanical gardens, orchards, pumpkin patches and lakes!
We also enjoy day trips to the Aquariums and extended weekends at the beach!
We have 2 lovable, spunky husky/lab mix pups, Griffin and Waffles. Griffin loves giving kisses and Waffles is always happy to play dress-up with Ari. We also have 3 cats- Spike, the leader of the pack, Bailey, our lap-cat who always wants snuggles, and Loki, Ari's playful kitten who absolutely adores her. The most recent addition to our family is a beta fish named Marshmallow Pancake!
|Our Favorite Family Traditions|
In honor of Ari's birthmother's birthday, we celebrate "Family Date Day"! We always want Ari to know how special her birth mother is to us, so each year we plan an extra-special adventure that allows us to celebrate and enjoy the gift she gave us- our family!
|Holly Jolly Holidays|
Black Friday kicks off a variety of magical Christmas activities! We start by putting up the Christmas Tree and decorating it with twinkling lights, trains, teddy bears and characters from all of our favorite Disney movies. Every year, each one of us selects a new ornament that defines that year for us. Last year, we gained a Batman ornament (Vinnie's favorite superhero), a pink flamingo pool float (for the phenomenal summer we had) and Moana (Ari's most requested movie in 2018)! And of course, it wouldn't be Christmas without hanging stockings, decorating Gingerbread Houses, Christmas cookies, and writing letters to Santa!
Since our family loves adventure, we always take a train ride to the "North Pole" to visit Santa and Mrs. Clause and drive through Christmas Wonderland! This is a spectacular drive-thru light show that mixes holiday music with thousands of lights depicting the magic of Christmas!
