We love our house and neighborhood, which is surrounded by many different parks for children to play at. Our neighborhood also has a basketball court, tennis court and a pool all within walking distance, which is great for children. We live in the heart of the city and enjoy going to the farmer’s market as well as the Art festival and International food festival. We also enjoy going to our neighborhood annual jolly holiday lights during Christmas where the neighborhood is decorated in Christmas décor.
Although we live in the city we have a nice nature trail that runs by our home. We enjoy utilizing the trail by going on walks/runs with our dog. One of the many reasons we love our home is that it has a nice backyard where we love having barbeques and playing yard games with family and friends. We not only love our home for our yard space but also for the space we have inside, as we have plenty of space to host gatherings with friends and family.
We value family and enjoy every moment we get to spend with them. John’s parents live out of state, but Crystal’s parents live just a short drive away, so we are able to spend more time with them. However, we are also able to visit John’s family on the holidays or in the summer. Crystal has two sisters and we are able to spend lots of time with them as they live close by. We enjoy spend time out at the lake canoeing/paddle boating with her siblings. John has a brother and a sister with four children who all live out of state, we enjoy face timing them often and visiting them on the holidays.
Christmas and Thanksgiving are typically hosted at our house where the family tradition is to cook the meal together and play family games. We enjoy going to the Iowa state fair every year with Crystal’s family where we watch figure eight racing, play carnival games and enjoy going on some of the rides. When visiting John’s family, we enjoy going to the zoo and having family barbeques with the whole family. Both families are thrilled we are pursuing adoption and can’t wait to meet the new addition to the family!
