Kayaking on the Chicago River. We both grew up near the water and spent a lot of time swimming and boating on the lake. Kayaking is one of our favorite things to do together.
Getting outdoors is one of our favorite ways to spend time together. Here we were hiking in the Dolomites in Northern Italy during our pre-wedding honeymoon.
Caught dancing at a friend's wedding in Pittsburgh. Nick is a GREAT dancer! He can easily steal the attention at any wedding or big event. Adam... generally tries to hide when the music starts to play.
Celebrating Baloo's 1st birthday in Humboldt Park (Chicago)! He loves banana flavored anything--but especially ice cream.
Celebrating Nick's 30th birthday a few years back! Adam surprised Nick by flying his best friend, Erika, out to help celebrate.
Giving a tour of Chicago when Adam's family came to visit: (from left to right) Adam and Nick; Adam's mom, Robin; Adam's brother, Andrew; and sister-in-law, Maggie (married to Andrew).
Out to dinner with Nick's family in Chicago: (left to right) Nick's parents, Fran and Rick; Nick's brother, Rick, holding his son, Dean; Adam and Nick; our oldest niece, Ella, and her mom, Christina (sister-in-law; Rick's wife); and Alice and Tom (Christina's parents).
We road tripped with Adam's family to visit his grandparents in South Carolina to watch the solar eclipse. Adam has a REALLY big family. He's the oldest of 6 boys total. His brothers are Andrew, Ben, Jake, Reed, and Carson. Both of his parents remarried their current spouses when he was a little kid, so he often tells people he has four parents, and is lucky enough to have 4-sets of grandparents. We both feel really close to our families, and so it doesn't take much of an excuse to visit--though the solar eclipse was a really cool excuse.
At a concert with some of Adam's siblings: (left to right) Carson and Reed; our sister-in-law, Maggie; Adam's oldest brother, Andrew (married to Maggie); and, Adam and Nick.
Nick performing on stage during his Broadway debut in New York, NY. We share a big love for theater and music, and expect it to always be a part of our relationship. Adam loves celebrating these opening nights with Nick.
