The Fun Stuff

Random thing about you? I LOVE animals. I have fed and pet a hippo.

Perfect Saturday? My perfect Saturday would be spending the day on the beach. I would pack a picnic, a good book, and some sunscreen — and I’d make sure to catch the sunset. 

Funny family memory? During a family canoe trip, one canoe flipped over and everyone fell into the river. I was in the canoe that stayed afloat, so while everyone else was wet and cold, my dad and I were comfy and dry!
