We are a family of 4, Ray (dad), Sheri (mom), Sydney, Charlie, & Wilson our dog.  We have lived in Vancouver, WA since 1996.

Sheri and I met in Beaverton, OR.  From there we maintained a long distance relationship threw high school and college.  In 1994 I got a job at NACCO in Portland, OR and later that summer we got married.  A few years later I moved to HP in Vancouver, WA and that was when we decided to buy our first and only house and move to Washington.

Things we like to go do as a family:

  • Playing on the Wii, home cooking, and watching movies at home.
  • Hiking at Lacamas lake, down in the gorge, and other areas in our local area.
  • Going to the beach.  Some times Seaside OR, but mainly Ft. Stevens to stay at one of the cabins of the KOA campground.
  • “The Mountain”.  Sportsmans Park property is nestled up on the east side of Mt. Hood.  Open up the back gate and it’s Mt. Hood national forest.  We like walking, swimming/fishing in rock creek reservoir, and riding the ATV’s.
  • Yearly vacations.  Now that we have the sprinter van WVO enabled we are planning on week vacations at least twice a year during the summer time.
