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 Halloween!!

The magic of holidays has quickly infiltrated our home and family now that Nate and I have a child to celebrate with. We have been SO excited to do all the traditions that make holidays so much fun. Last year, I think we missed Halloween completely. Well, THIS YEAR, we took it to some extremes. After we got our pumpkins and Nate had his Dremmel Drill [see 'Pumpkin' Patch Post below], we got to work. Those pumpkins sliced like butter with that drill and this made the whole experience so much more fun and easy. We carved 5 pumpkins! We also took Jace to a Halloween Festival at a local High School [where he got his face painted and got to eat his first piece of candy] and to Trunk Or Treating… it was a blast! After that we headed to a friends party where we stuffed our faces with soups and rolls and raided our children’s’ pillow cases. There has been some debate about whether Jace was a duckling or a chick. Either way… he was just too delicious. ; ) Happy Halloween!
