Our children play every Parks and Rec sport you could think of, along with being involved in the fun summer activities for the littles, ESFA football and cheer. We would love to get more involved!
Tell us about your pets, if you have any!!
We have two dogs and a cat. Teddy, a toy mini poodle, Shih Tzu mix. He is about 6 pounds and full of energy! Rich is a Blue Heeler and definitely loves to lead the herd. He dictates where you want to go! Cozmo is our kitty. We adopted him from Excelsior Springs Animal Hospital five years ago. He likes to hangout inside but loves when he goes outside.
If you have family/friends come visit, what do you like to take them to do?
I love going downtown to all the beautiful shops our town has acquired. This would be a go to spot, along with the amazing restaurants we have, Wabash, Ventana, and El-Mags! We also have some beautiful walking trails. We, as a family, love to walk so these would be top of the list.
