The Powers Family

The Powers
We have 3 children (and a dog) who make sure there is a never a dull moment in our house. 
They fill our house with lots of laughter, chasing, and hugs.
We live with autism in our family and we advocate for autism awareness and education.

The Janke Family

The Jankes
We are parents of a 6 year old who loves Star Wars, Transformers, 
and playing outside. We are a bi-lingual family so if you see a sweet 6 year old 
running around the shop speaking German, he's ours!
