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.

Ringling Brothers- Barnum & Bailey!

Jace got to go to the CIRCUS for the very first time last week!! Although he THOROUGHLY enjoyed all the lights and music, Nate and I really just used him as a good excuse to go ourselves. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!! The pictures below were taken during the pre-show, because no cameras were allowed during the actual performance. At the pre show, the children got autographs from the performers, they got to play dress up, walk the tight rope, learn to juggle, play with the clowns, and see the animals up-close and personal. That’s Rosie the Elephant getting a treat of a full loaf of Wonderbread, for doing so well with her tricks. My favorite act was most definitely the ‘motorcycle cage’. We got ALL the usual snacks that go with the circus: hot dogs, cotton candy, candied nuts and fresh donut holes!! Nate and I will definitely take our little family again… probably when they can actually remember. ; )
