Nate & Luisa bio picture
  • WE ARE…

    ... THE PERKES. We still consider ourselves newlyweds [we've been married for almost 5 years]. Our firstborn, Jace, is now 2 years old, and became a big brother when Sofia Rain joined our family in November 2012. We are from the East Coast [Luisa is from MA and Nate is from NH]. We are Bronco's Fans [We've lived in the Boise area for almost 5 years]. We are travelers. We are athletes and we are dancers. We are enthusiastic about food. We are spontaneous. We are addicted to the sun. We are in love.

    Most importantly... we are HAPPY. We are the Perkes.

Welcome to the World!!

Recently I’ve been determined to learn the very basic tricks of Nate’s trade. His super-duper camera takes some commandeering and his photo editing software is pretty intense as well. But, I would be foolish not to take advantage of Nate’s Nikon. So. I had my first photo shoot the other day with the NEWEST ADDITION…

The Perkes Family - Hey you Love the pictures! (wink, wink) You need to take advantage of a good camera thats for sure! Hey I have "Falling Slowly" on my play list and it works, you should try it again. I down loaded it when I did my last blog. Let me no if you need a hand! Love ya!

Bree - HEEEEY!!! I kept checking your blog and you hadn't updated…now I check and there's a million new ones! :) I'm so glad we can be blog buddies!!

Ken and Jen Perkes - Luisa: Nate needs to share his camera with you more often! You are wonderful! And so funny. I loved this post. Little Julia is adorable . . . and so are you! Great job!

Herbert the Handsome…

I know. It HAS been forever. I apologize profusely for not having posted in over a month. The truth is… I was waiting for something perfectly fantastic to happen. And it did. Meet Herbert. I had a date with him Friday night. One look at his perfect complexion, dreamy eyes and luscious lips and I…

Shannon - Reminds of the trip to Thendara when we caught like a hundred of those little frogs and we had to name and kiss every single one before releasing them. Oh, the good ole days!!!! How is it that without older brothers you and I are as fearless as the boys?! You more so than me, but it works!! LOVE YOU

The Perkes Family - I love the Story of Herbert, even though I sort of heard it already told, I loved the story board version! You definitely gave that frog something to tell the other frogs! Poor guy, non of them are going to believe him! Rescued, kissed, and danced till the sun came up. It is quite unbelievable! =)

Josh - I love it! The adventure sounds like many other Perkes moments. I’m thinking of Racoons and Snapping Turtles and even Sugar Gliders. You guys are awesome!

Ken and Jen Perkes - HILARIOUS!!! I loved the “Sweet Little Buttercup” serenade. And the frantic get-away . . . NOT [I think he was sort of attached to you guys]. I have to admit he is one beautiful frog!

I laughed as I scrolled down through the pictures, saw the kiss and then . . . SHAZAM! . . . . there was Nathan. Made me laugh.

You guys are too fun!
