Home, Pets, Family & Friends

OUR HOME

Our children love playing in the field across from our house with the 20-25 kids in our neighborhood, including our nieces and nephews who live across the street from us. We love walking our dog Lola on the trail by our house and the girls usually take bread to feed the ducks and turtles. Our home has a big play room for rainy days and a backyard with a swing set the kids play on for hours.

OUR DOG - LOLA

Lola is a rescue that we call “the perfect dog” because she is so sweet. She is such a perfect dog that we regularly have other families ask if they can watch her for us whenever we travel.

FAMILY & FRIENDS

Both Chris and I come from large extended Italian families in New Jersey. Our family and friends are important to both of us which means frequent trips to see people we love and regular visitors to our home in NC. Chris’s brother and Pam’s sister live very close by and our families see one another almost every day. Our kids will get to be in the same grades in school as their cousins, which they absolutely love.
