We are both very lucky to have a large, and supportive family close by. Both of our parents live within 45 minutes, and our furthest sibling lives under 2 hours away.
We regularly get together to celebrate birthdays, attend local events, have family dinners, go on vacation, and celebrate holidays as a family.
Kyle's parents met
while they were on a class trip to Germany in high school and have been happily married for 35 years. Kyle's dad is an engineer and his mom is a labor and delivery nurse, so she has a lot of experience with babies! In her free time, Kyle's mom sews beautiful quilts and Kyle's dad builds furniture, both hobbies Kyle enjoys doing as well. They are the proud grandparents of two grandchildren,
ages 5 and 3.
Kyle and his parents on our wedding day
Kyle has an older brother
and two younger sisters. Kyle's brother has 2 kids that are ages 5 and 3 and are so fun to be around. They live in Connecticut near Kyle's youngest sister, about an hour and a half away. His other sister lives an hour north of us, which makes our house the central point for his family. We regularly get together for summer barbecues, birthday parties, sporting events (Kyle's family are all
Cubs fans!) and holidays!
