In our family, we believe we learn and grow through experiences. Our goal is to live a life full of as much adventure and fun as possible! We are always on the go, creating amazing memories with our kids. Whether it's Disneyland in the summer, or snow vacations in the winter, we love to travel and experience new people and places.

We are really lucky to live close to both of our families, and they are very involved in our lives. I (Kaycee) have one biological sister and two younger sisters who are adopted, and are the best aunties to S, K and P! They are only a few years older than our kids, so they are more like siblings, and have a really special bond. Both sets of grandparents are actively involved in our lives, and are always spoiling their grandkids! They're always at the kids sporting events, and we see my parents and sisters almost daily, as they live just down the street! They love taking the kids on movie dates and going out for ice cream. S and K always know who to call when they want dessert and mom and dad said no ;)
I am so lucky to be able to stay at home with the kids. Growing up I never really knew what I wanted to do as a career, but I did know I wanted to be a mom. It's the only thing I was ever completely sure about, and there is nothing that brings me more joy than being able to be with my kids everyday.
Eric supports our family with a career as a professional athlete. This is what allows us to travel as much we do and experience so many different places. He works extremely hard for our family, but we are never apart for long, and make keeping our family together our #1 priority!
Although we love our children more than this world, Eric and I always put each other first, and realize the importance of showing our children a healthy, happy marriage and relationship. We have been each others best friend since day one, and know that for our children to be truly happy, they need parents who are truly happy as well.
We are actively involved with our church, and the kids love (most of the time) going on Sundays! Eric works with the youth, specifically the 12 and 13 year old boys, and I work coordinating services for any women in need of assistance. Whether they have had surgery, a death in the family, or are just in need of a meal, I help coordinate the services for them. Our faith is who we are, and what sets us apart. We have strong values and beliefs, and rely on them as we raise our children. Among the many values we are trying to teach our children, kindness is probably number one. We believe that if our children are kind, loving, and compassionate people they will be successful in this life. We are always trying to serve others, and be examples to our kids of how and why it is important to love and serve everyone around us.
