Jon and Erin, tell us a little more about yourselves.  Starting with an easy one…What is your favorite cereal?

Erin: Hands down, Lucky Charms! It’s a perfect balance between marshmallows and cereal, but mostly I like it because it reminds me of my Grandpa. He always used to buy it for my sister and me when we were little.

John: I like unhealthy fruity cereal or chocolate cereal! So Coco Pebbles, Fruity Pebbles, Captain Crunch! You get the point. 🙂

Were either of you named after anyone?

Erin:  Not anyone in my family. My mom would come home every day from work when she was pregnant with me and watch a TV show called The Waltons. There was both an Erin and an Elizabeth on the show. She liked the names and named me Erin Elizabeth. So I guess I’m named after The Waltons.

Jon:  No, I was not. My full name is Jonathan Paul Lester, and because I go by Jon, people called me “Pope” because of Pope John Paul. My mom actually wanted to name me Abraham, 🙂 but my older brother came into the delivery room asking where little Jon was!

Which season is your favorite and why?

Erin:  I love both Summer and Fall. I really like summer because of how much time you can spend outside and swimming! Also I love to be warm! Fall is such a great season with the crisp air, leaves changing colors, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. Also, since the new school year begins in fall, it reminds me of beginnings and fresh starts (which I love). The only drawback to fall is that winter comes after it.

Jon:  It is a toss up between Fall and Winter. I love the cool to colder weather! I love doing activities outdoors and not getting to hot from them! Mostly, I love the holiday season and the traditions that I have with my family!
