2: We bought our home with a family in mind. It is in a cul du sac, backs up to open space with a little "wilderness" to explore, and is less than a mile from Aimee's parents home. We are in a family friendly neighborhood with great schools, parks and a pool. | Our Home | Our home has a great back yard to run around and play with the dogs or climb on the jungle gym. Inside we have a finished basement for a future play room. The baby will have a wonderful nursery and there is room to grow; we hope to someday welcome a second child to our family.
