Hello, I am a wife and momma to two little ones, one boy (6) and one girl (2). My husband and I have both lived in Abbotsford for our childhood to adult years and are loving raising our children here as well. We live in an older neighborhood close to the downtown Abbotsford area that is seeing lots of changes and developments lately (which includes many of our favorite places to visit).
