Favorite Family Activity: 

We love playing at the playground and going for walks around our neighborhood after dinner. 

 

Favorite Outdoor Game as a Kid:  

During the day, I loved playing Wiffleball.  At night, it was all about Flashlight Tag.

 

What Makes You Smile: 

My kids either say or do something unexpectedly hilarious almost daily.  That never fails to put a smile on my face.

Tesla Model S for Kids is my favorite Radio Flyer project.  I was very involved in the development and it’s just so much fun to drive!
