The Reid Family
What is your favorite family tradition?
We are making new traditions every year.
Tell us about your favorite family story.
My name is Abbi & my husband is Colton. We grew up in the same small town in Alabama. Through school, we never liked each other in a romantic sense, but we were always friends.
After high school, Colton joined the Marine Corps. After returning from his first deployment, we began talking. In January of 2017 I went to visit him at his duty station in North Carolina.
Shortly after, we decided to start our lives together in that beautiful state. In March we found out we were expect a sweet little baby. Colton went on another deployment in August, and I gave birth to our sweet baby boy, Cash, in November. Colton's time as a Marine is almost over, and we will be joining our extended families in Alabama.
In one short phrase or sentence, what is your family's motto?
I love you...past forever.

My child loves water, so I thought it would be a great idea to put him in the bath with no seat... yeah that became a disaster and I may as well take a bath with him, but now he screams if we don't let him take a bath like that. Needless to say, he gets what he wants.
