Jeff is extremely dedicated to his family. They love to travel and also lounge at home solving the Sunday New York Times Crossword together. Every year they compete in a treasure hunt through downtown San Francisco during the Chinese New Year’s Parade. Growing up with two close sisters, he values sibling relationships and wants Jax and her brother or sister to learn these values as well.
Jeff’s parents recently moved to Oregon as well. They have a place on the coast near where the 80’s movie The Goonies was filmed, surrounded by blackberries and sand dunes. His sister Kristen and her husband also live in Portland and have three amazing children close to Jax’s age. The kids love playing with her and are very potective since she is the youngest. Jeff’s youngest sister lives with her husband in the Los Angeles area. All can’t wait to welcome another child into the fold.
Louis comes from a small but big-hearted family. Louis’s sister, Deja, her husband and daughter, Ella, live in Redlands, California. Ella loves dancing and showing Jax toys. Laughing together is their favorite past-time. Louis’s youngest sister, Clarissa, and her husband live outside of Nashville and have a daughter, Kaelee Ann.
We want our children to know and love their cousins as well. When we hang-out with our four nieces and one nephew we usually spend our time together camping on the California coast, vacationing at our family’s beach house for Fourth of July, going to the movies, painting and drawing pictures, going to the ballet for the holidays to see The Nutcracker, reading stories or running through Disneyland. We are super uncles to all our nieces and nephew. Everyone is great to Jax, and will be as awesome to our second child!
