***Linking up with MamaKat today: 2.) 5 Random facts about you and your family. (inspired by Nice Girl Notes)***
(I tried to get Matt to write a “Dear Women” post…but he wasn’t up for it.)
You all know we love each other and spend lots o’ time together…so here are 5 things maybe you didn’t know…
1.) We love to play games. Some of our favorites are Spot It, Bananagrams, Phase 10, Spinner and Clue. When we go camping, and after dinner in the winter, you can almost always find us playing games.
2.) We love to travel. As a family, we’ve been to Wisconsin Dells, Chicago, upstate New York, Maine twice, Kentucky horse park, Disney World and other parts of Florida twice, Washington D.C., Colorado, the Badlands in South Dakota, northern Michigan, Vermont and the west coast of Michigan and all over Ohio. We’ve done 99% of it in our travel trailer camper.
3.) We love movies and TV. (Hey, we also love reading.) We watch The Middle and Modern Family and America’s Got Talent together. We’re working our way through Matt and my’s favorite pre-teen movies. (What were your favorite movies when you were a pre-teen? We need ideas.) Last Friday, Matt suggested Commando with Sylvester Stallone and, forgetting to look at what it was rated, we watched it. And turned it off after 10 minutes and 20 cases of the M-Fer expletive. (FYI: It’s a family joke that when you watch a movie with Matt’s parents, it’s either super boring or highly inappropriate. So he comes by it naturally.)
4.) We enjoy being outside. Hiking, biking, walking, you name it! One of our favorite things to do is to go to the zoo in the winter when it’s freezing. No one’s there!! We come from sturdy German stock, so we’re all set.
5.) We are very close with our extended family. My Mom is the 6th member of our family for sure. She lives about 7 minutes away. Matt’s parents live right across the street. His sister and her family live one street over. My sister used to live right around the corner but now lives 30 minutes away. We see them often and I couldn’t be happier. I always wanted my grandma and aunts and uncles and cousins close by.
Well, did you learn something new? What’s a random fact about your family that you’d like to share?
