ZImmerman Fun Family Facts

My lovely friend, Jaime, has tagged me for "Family Facts" So i'm going to try to do it as good as she did. But before I forget, I'm tagging Cairen, Katie, Jami B., Kristen S. and Chelsea S. to do this! I can't wait to find out more about your families!

Here it goes, oldest to youngest.

Joseph Daniel Zimmerman:

-He mainly grew up in Port Neches, TX
-He loved playing sports, especially baseball. He was the fastest and best athlete. They would call him "Smokin' Joe"
-Attended BYU and graduated in Biology with Dental School in mind.
-Completely ignored his wonderful wife for the first 2 weeks of marriage to study for the DAT (Probably a good thing since he got a miraculous score that allowed us to come to SATX!).
-Got married 3 days after turning 25.
-Can do a standing back-flip...which he did on our first date..I think that's what won me over ;)

-Her favorite toy is and has been this teal-colored Easter dog she got for her first Easter. She has to take it everywhere!!
-She is very very energetic.
