We met on Friday the 13th. We got engaged on April 13th. And we got married on November 13th. We consider ourselves very lucky to have met each other and 13 is definitely our lucky number.
We love to travel.
The first trip we took together was to Chicago where we had lots of fun at museums and ate at delicious restaurants. That's our favorite kind of trip to take.
We love to visit friends.
We took a trip to Seattle and Portland and visited many friends in both cities. We hiked, we visited museums, we played in a pinball arcade and everything in between. When friends can't come to us, we'll go to them.
We love reunions.
Every year, Keith's extended family gathers from all across the country for a reunion. It's so much fun to hang out with cousins, aunts and uncles and see the crowd grow and change every year. Just imagine 65 people wearing these exact same shirts and trying to get one big group picture!
We love to cook.
We love to spend time together in the kitchen. Most of our meals are simple and healthy, but when we cook together, we like to make it a big, fancy deal. Friends and family keep asking us to open a restaurant. (This picture appeared in our local newspaper!)
We love family trips.
To celebrate Keith's parents 50th wedding anniversary, we all went to JAPAN! Here we're all smiles at their big wedding celebration dinner. What an amazing, once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
We love hanging out with family.
Here we're with Lynne's family, hanging out in her parent's backyard, celebrating summer.
We love funny faces.
Doing our best funny faces with Keith's niece and nephew.
We love our pups.
A snuggly moment with Ossi and Eli (before Zoe joined our four-legged family).
We love to play.
Our dogs -- Ossi, Eli and Zoe -- hanging out on the deck, ready to play in our big backyard. We also live across the street from a park with a great playground.
We love experiencing our city
We both grew up going to Minnesota Twins baseball games and it's so much fun to spend warm summer nights watching the hometown team!
We love a good road trip.
A few times each year, we jump into the car and drive up north to visit Lynne's grandmothers. Road trip!
We love Halloween.
Our favorite holiday is probably Halloween. Here we are at a pumpkin carving party. We won!
We love and like each other.
We're always here for each other in good times and tough times. We genuinely love and like each other. We talk, we make each other laugh and, as you can see, we have fun together. We can't wait to expand our family and share this great life.
We're Ready To Expand Our Family.
When we announced to everyone that we're expanding our family through adoption, HUNDREDS of our friends & family members offered their love & support. We're excited to make a great match with an expectant mother so we can grow our family and continue our adventures.
