We are Lacy and Tony, a Catholic couple who lives in Montgomery County, MD. We have been happily married for four wonderful years, and we can't wait to become parents. We spend most of our free time visiting with family and friends, but occasionally we squeeze in some other things, like traveling, hiking, rock climbing, reading, movies, and board games.We are both excited to become parents, but Lacy is most excited to read books with our child and to cuddle, and Tony is looking forward to being a part of our child's "first" experiences--first snowfall, first pizza, first trip to the zoo, etc.....
