We are beyond blessed to have the love and support of our family and friends. Trent has so many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who love him to pieces! Not a vacation goes by that we are not off doing some type of fun activity with them. Holidays are especially fun getting to watch all of the kids run around together! Trent’s cousins range in age from 1 to 9 years old.
Our favorite family holiday is Thanksgiving when Jillian prepares a gigantic feast for our entire family, including enough leftovers for everyone to take a meal home. It is a day filled with fun, lots of yummy food, kids playing, football watching, and our traditional football game at the park!
Jillian’s family lives close by in the San Jose area. Everyone is extremely close. On most weekends you will typically find Jillian’s family rotating from one little league baseball game to the next, all supporting and cheering for each other! We all enjoy barbequing, going to the park, going to baseball games, or just hanging out together! It is a very close-knit family filled with love and support. The only problem with such a big family close by is deciding who gets to babysit Trent! It is usually an argument because everyone wants to spend time with our little man! We know, without a doubt, that they will always be there for our children and us! We love being a part of such a strong family unit where there will no doubt be at least one family member at every soccer game, science fair, or holiday play of our children's!
Jillian’s older sister, Jenni, is one of our best friends. She and her husband, Mike, have two boys who we love so much. Trent loves going to Auntie’s house and will take off running as fast as he can as soon as we walk in the door! He loves playing with his cousins and exploring life with them! They are his biggest fans and cheer him on, teaching him the ropes, keeping him safe, but most importantly being his big cousins! I know that when we have another son or daughter they are going to be great big cousins to both our children. Auntie Jenni and Unky Mike are pretty cool too; they are a huge supporter of our family and love Trent and our future children as if they were their own! We are so lucky to have them!
James’s family lives in Huntington Beach which includes his parents and sister. Trent loves face-timing with his Grandma and Grandpa and we all love our adventures down in Southern California. James and his dad are especially excited to teach Trent how to surf, a passion they both share, they have even gotten a small surf board made for him so he can start to learn! We know James parents’ will be thrilled to welcome another grandchild into their family.
