They have two boys, Porter (3 years) and Caleb (1 year). They love karaoke and spontaneous dance parties. They like to cook together (anything sweet and if they are brave international dishes). They do not have any dogs (much to the chagrin of Porter and Solei). They are avid couponers and will do almost anything to get a good deal. They are also amateur outdoor adventurists (like most people). Mostly they try to enjoy life they are creating together now at UTHSC!
