Our House and Neighborhood
Home Sweet Home

Our comfortable three-bedroom ranch style home is situated in a family friendly neighborhood. On any given day, several kids can be found riding bikes, running and playing outside together. A favorite room in our house is our sons room where the carpet is very soft. We spend a lot of time in there dancing to music, playing with a wooden train set, reading books and throwing balls back and forth.

Swinging in the Backyard

Here in Ohio, we are close to museums, a zoo and many seasonal festivals. One of Nicki's favorite things about where we live is taking advantage of the annual zoo membership at our local zoo. When the weather allows, we try to spend a lot of time outside. As a family, we spend evenings and weekends at our local parks and botanical gardens enjoying the many walking trails and the playground. We have a couple school playgrounds within walking distance of our home and a large yard to play in. We both really enjoy pushing Jacob in his swing in our large, fenced in backyard.

Our Extended Families
Ben with Jacob and Cousin Eden

Our families are important parts of our lives, and we love spending as much time with them as possible. Most holidays are spent visiting our families as some of our family members are spread throughout the country and even the world. We really cherish the times when we are all able to get together.

Meeting a New Cousin

Nicki's family spends time together doing projects around the house and having cookouts with her Mom's homemade potato salad. Nicki's side of the family is still growing as Nicki's sister recently had a baby girl and Nicki's younger brother is getting married this summer. We are looking forward to these new additions to our family.

When we get together with Ben's family, we often play Rook and ride the four wheeler with our nieces and nephews. We also find time to roast hot dogs and marshmallows as the weather allows.

We've been known to vacation with our parents or siblings and appreciate the special times we can share with them. Your child would have many loving cousins to play with in the coming years with 8 cousins and more on the way.
