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.

Happy 1st Birthday, Jace!!

I cannot believe that my little baby boy is already 1 year old. Time has seriously flown. This past year has been one  of the best of my life; I can’t imagine that life gets any better than this. So that we could be with family on this special day, we all decided to head up to the mountains in McCall [about 2 hours north of Boise] and get a cabin. We were there with Jake & Kate and their 5 kids as well as Max and his sweetheart, Ashlee. We had so much fun skiing and sledding and eating at THE Pancake House. It was just such a winter wonderland!! Jace isn’t a fan of loud noises or big crowds so we tried to keep it low key. We quietly sang him Happy Birthday, and unsuccessfully tried to teach him how to blow out his candle. The cousins were more than willing to help him out with that. And then we let him have free reign of his mini-cake [everyone else got cupcakes]…. BUT, apparently Jace doesn’t like sweet things, or to get dirty or sticky [he started to cry when I put his hands in the cake.... ooops]. Jace has definitely developed in his ‘present-unwrapping-skills’ since Christmas, and he has LOOOOOVVVVEEED his new toys. He plays with them daily… especially the balls. Anyways, WE LOVE OUR ‘BIG’ BOY!!!! He is seriously the joy of our lives. We were so excited to celebrate this birthday with him and in the words of my ‘Grammy’: “And many more!!!!”
