Tell us about your family and what you did for vacation this year.
I have been married to Sam Poat for thirteen years. We have two girls, a boy and another one on the way! My husband’s family is in California so we had a nice time visiting recently. We really enjoyed Gilroy Gardens Amusement Park, Pine Crest Lake, and spending time with family.
