Our town is a small community that sits on the U.S.-Canadian border with a strong French-Canadian heritage. It has been intriguing to learn about the culture. The community has several family-oriented events, many of them are focused on the outdoors. The local outdoor center offers several summer and winter activities for children that include; hiking, biking, downhill skiing, and snowshoeing. In addition, the local cross-country ski trails have hosted international events and are regarded as some of the best trails in the world. There is a strong community recreational program that offers children's sports like baseball and soccer. In fact, Kasey has been a volunteer assistant coach with the youth baseball team. It is an extremely safe community where people rarely lock their doors and community members are always willing to lend a hand. There are several festivals held each year including the Can-Am Dogsled races, Ploye Festival, and Muskie fishing derby.
Our home sits at the end of a quiet street on the edge of town. The house itself is a 3,300-square foot, 5 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, ranch-style house that sits on four acres. We have a pool, green house and barn. We love to garden, produce our own vegetables and grow flowers. We have 8 laying hens- they are brand new, we can hardly wait to start collecting eggs. It is a very quaint neighborhood in a convenient location. Our house is a five-minute drive to the grocery store, schools, biking/hiking trails and hospital.
Every year Kasey's family meets at a family cabin near Yellowstone National Park for the opening of fishing on Henry's Lake. This is a highly anticipated tradition even though there are very few fish actually caught. This annual trip involves lots of home cooked meals, card games, laughs and story telling. We enjoy visits at each other's homes throughout the year as well.
One of Christina's family traditions is meeting at different destinations for family vacations. So far locations have included exotic destinations like Belize, Guam and Hawaii, and more central locations like Southern Maine, Missouri, Idaho and Alaska. We also make sure to visit at a central "home base" at least once a year- usually more than once. We love seeing and sharing our homes with each other.
We also have family in Southern Maine that we meet up with multiple times a year for holidays, mountain bike races, hiking and exploring the outdoors.
Our families are waiting with open arms for a new addition. We are all excited to share new experiences and create memories together with a new child. Our parents are especially excited to add a new grandchild to the family and our nieces and nephews cannot wait to meet their new cousin.
