That’s our little family in its early days: Rachel, Zach, and Sadie (the cutest golden retriever you’ll ever meet). The adventures of the Rambachs began on August 8, 2008, when we were married on a beautiful Friday evening in our hometown of Springfield, Illinois. We bought a new house soon after, and Sadie joined our family in the spring of 2009. Over the next 4 years, we traveled all over the country and had the vacation of a lifetime in Europe, which we call our “last big hurrah”.
Just a little over a month after returning home, we found out we were expecting! I was so excited for my little Junebug, and spent the next 9 months planning and preparing for Baby Rambach’s arrival. I loved being pregnant, and was lucky to enjoy several great vacations and a full workload right up until the month our baby boy was born.
Parker Joshua Rambach was born at 10:31 am on June 8, 2013. He is the great love of our lives, and we’ve had a blast watching him grow up before our very eyes. I’m lucky to be able to spend my days with Parker and still work as a music therapist in the afternoons/evenings, while Zach works full time as an insurance agent. Our flexible schedules have allowed us to take quite a few trips as a family, and Parker is already quite the little traveler.
One year in as parents, I must say that this is a pretty sweet gig. Our family is definitely not done growing yet, and I can’t wait to see what happens over the next few years. Thank you for reading the blog and following along with our adventures!
