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.

Wishing for Warmer Weather…

As winter comes upon us, I find myself longing for the hot sun, for dark tans, for the smell of sunscreen and barbecues… picnics on the lakeside; warm, glassy water and cool sunglasses… aka the summer. Nate hasn’t helped my nostalgia as he’s made this fun video as part of a bid he is preparing for a corporate job.

Shout out to all of our boating buddies! See you all at Black Canyon in about … 6 months!

*Nate. I am so proud of you.
**Don’t forget to turn off my music down at the bottom!!
***Note: A while back I mentioned in one of my posts my skipping across the water experience. The video didn’t work then, but you can see it here!

Mike and Ariane - Editing to the music, that's talent! Nice work!

Ken and Jen Perkes - Mom and I have watched this over and over again! And, of course, love it. Luisa: you do skip well! Was Nate having more fun than he should have putting that scene to music? My favorite photo of Nate is one in which he is airborne and touching his board [which goes from upper left to lower right--not the way we usually see him airborne]. He included it twice; once in black and white. AMAZING photo [which you must have taken!] and amazing wake boarding. You all make it looks so fun and so cool! Glad you posted this. We are super proud of you guys!

Good luck with the corporate bid!


Kim Davis - Luisa!!!! I'm sorry to say that I laughed really hard at you skipping across the water. That is exactly why I will NEVER tube again. What a fun video – it makes 6 months feel like FOREVER away.
