Travel & FunDec 18, 2020
Traveling is one of our favorite pastime activities. Exploring new places and creating memories has been very important in our relationship, and something we believe is important for children to experience. Our family has time-share in Aruba and the yearly trips to the island are filled with lots of fun. Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins, all get to share a week together and it is something we look forward to. Though Aruba is our regular vacationing spot, we enjoyed a Disney cruise in 2017 and a trip to Disney World in 2019. It was a magical time, not only for the children, but also for the adults. We do not always need to travel to far and exotic locations. We enjoy destinations right here in NY and the surrounding states. One of our favorite places for a quick weekend getaway is a ranch about 2 hours from home. Horseback riding, paddle boats on the lake, and eating smore's around the campfire are just a few of the things that we like to do when visiting. Vito likes to fish, hunt, and work on projects around the house. Janet enjoys puzzles, board games, cooking, and planning parties. Together we love to travel, attend concerts and baseball games, go for walks, explore hiking and bike trails, and trips to the park.
Our HomeDec 18, 2020
In 2011 we purchased a 4-bedroom, 2 bath home on a family-oriented street in the suburbs of New York. On most days you will find children riding bikes or playing basketball outside. While our city is large, we have a close-knit community. The neighbors organize block parties in the summer and Halloween is a very big deal. Education is very important to us. Our city's schools have received the prestigious Blue-Ribbon Award from the U.S. Department of Education. We are happy to raise our children in a place where they will have friends and classmates with such a broad range of experiences. Our city has the best of both worlds. We are close to local stores and the creature comforts of city life. We are also surrounded by nature with large areas of untouched forests, meadows, and acres of hiking trails. We live a short distance from a nature study and less than a mile to the beach.
