He loves to lounge around the house in his motorcycle gear. Yes, this means his helmet, one piece letter and or riding boots.

7. What is one quirky habit that you have learned about her? 
She has a fear of hair, toes and chewing gum.

8. Quirkiest moment and/or adventure?
We went to Puerto Rico in 2011 on a baby moon for kid number 2. I was determined to go to a rain forest to see a real waterfall. We rented a car and they gave us a Toyota, Prius. We set out to find this rain forest (waterfall) via GPS. The adventure started out cool; we got to see the non-tourist parts of Puerto Rico. After driving for some time we found ourselves inside the rain forest driving on a 2 lane dirt road. On each side was a major cliff, I’m talking you fall off and flip 30 times before you hit the ground but nobody is going to ever find you type of cliff. The entire time our ears are popping as we go further up this mountain. Lol There were horses walking along side our car so close I could touch them. It was just crazy, so funny, yet such a beautiful experience. We would later find the waterfall AFTER we left the rain forest and were headed back to the hotel. hahahah
9. What will the back cover or your love story read? 
We came, we saw, we conquered and we made it look easy.
