I come from a large family with seven kids. I am the second to youngest. I LOVE spending time with them! Because we live different places we usually FaceTime, Skype and talk on the phone a lot. We keep in touch and cherish the time when we do get to spend time together!
These are my funny and adorable parents! They have a cute dog named Harry Potter. They live in Idaho and we love to go visit them as often as we can. My mom is an AMAZING cook and my dad enjoys outdoor activities, taking care of the yard, and watching college football. His favorite team is the Florida Gators, as that is his old stomping ground. My parents love to travel, and they recently got back from a trip to the East Coast, eating all the lobster they could along the way My parents met in Vietnam and have lived all over the world during my dad's career in the military. They served a mission in Alaska and currently serve in the temple each week.
This is me and my mom in the kitchen together. I love cooking with my mom!
