Our Last Family Photo 

We have had quite a journey getting to where we are. It all started back in the fall of 2006, that’s when Andi and I meet. We both attended Morrisville State College. Now 11 years after we first meet, we have weathered the military as well as moving from California, back to New York (where we are both originally from). We have 4 wonderful kids:

  • Zach – The oldest
  • Colt – One of the middles
  • Max – The other middle, but the true “baby” of the family
  • Pay – The youngest, and maybe the roughest, and the girl

We bought a house at the end of 2013 and are loving our adventure into home ownership (fixer upper, at that), a growing family (as in age, not more members!), and our growing hobby farm. Every year we add more to our property, with the goal that in the future we will able to harvest everything that we currently go to u-pick farms to pick, right on our own property.

From adding more chickens, fruit trees/plants, or adding another project to our to-do list we always building our hobby farm. I am always cooking something up, sometimes it’s dinner, sometimes it’s a new dessert I just HAD to try.

Join us for this wild ride! Maybe you’ll be inspired to try a new recipe, start growing some of your own food, or just laugh along with us, at some of the things that happen when you have kids.

I'm not sure what every other sunset we have ever seen has been, but the one the other night was pretty memorable.

For two days my egg count has been below normal. Today I found out why. Some of the chickens decided the duck nest looked better than their nest boxes. I also haven't been able to find the duck eggs ... See more
