We both come from big families! Phil’s mom and stepdad only live 10 minutes away and love having their kids and grandkids over to visit. We often do Sunday night family dinners at their house. Phil’s brother and Josh’s half brother also live in the area with their wives and kids. Our child will have plenty of cousins nearby to grow up with!
Josh also has extended family an hour away. We try to visit his grandmother often, along with several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Josh’s mom and step dad own a coffeeshop and are building a mountain cabin in Tennessee. Phil’s dad lives on a farm in Alabama with five dogs, 4 lambs, 23 chickens, and 29 goats. Josh also has a brother in South Carolina, and Phil’s sisters, one of which is his twin, live near Panama City Beach.
