We have been together for 12 years and married for 6 years. We live in a nice neighborhood in a 2000sq. ft. Split level home. We have 3 dogs, 2 female German shepherds, and 1 male golden doodle. In the evenings we spend time together eating as a family. After dinner, we do a family activity such as: playing outside with the dogs, playing board games, building with blocks, painting, doing science experiments, and educational activities. At bedtime, we read stories as a family to wind down. On weekends we build forts in the living room, make breakfast together, and dance in the kitchen. We also enjoy traveling, going to the Zoo, children’s museums, aquariums, the park, visiting family and have playdates.
