We are a family of 5. Dad is an environmental consultant and Mom works in Banking. Our daughter is 11 and passionate about soccer and windsurfing with her Dad. She is also a blue belt in taekwondo - watch out!. Our older boy is 8 and loves soccer, tennis, cycling and taekwondo too. The little one is only 3-1/2 months old (at time of printing - he will be 9 months in June) and the cutest of babies - of course!
We love being outdoors, Daddy cycles all the time and Mom is a runner. we often go to the beach, either close by at picnic island (http://tampabay.metromix.com or over to the gulf beaches (40min). We have a cat, Toby, who is very cuddly but quite independent. We love Tampa and Florida - there is so much to do and the weather is so nice all the time!
