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.

Pumpkin Patchin’…

It was one of those transitionary summer-to-fall days. We wore short sleeves. The sun was shining and there was a warm wind blowing, and during Nate’s ‘lunch break’, we decided that we HAD to get out of the house and enjoy the weather before the cold front rolls in. We headed out to the nearest pumpkin patch we could find and had a blast picking out pumpkins. We got some HUGE ONES, some little ones that were just perfectly Jace’s size, some warty gourds and even a white one [which Nate was NOT  a fan of]. Whenever Jace happens to have captured both Nate’s AND my attention, he is happy as a clam. That’s exactly how he was during out little adventure. Being the passionate person that Nate is, he got online and started looking at ALL these reviews about a pumpkin carving tool that will save you mounds of time and a couple of broken kitchen knives. The Dremmel Drill is Nate’s latest favorite toy. And it DID take ALL the hassle out of carving pumpkins, and made it fun and easy. That’s probably why we were able to carve 5 pumpkins [featured in the next Halloween post]. Anyways, we had a blast picking them out!
