A blind date set up by mutual friends brought Zach and Tina Bradley together. Zach is from the Kansas City area and attended Aquinas High School and Kansas University. Tina was living in Minnesota and attended the University of Minnesota. She took a job in Kansas City in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit a couple of years after meeting Zach in 2011. The two were married in 2014. Zach is a Surety Bond Producer and Tina is a registered nurse at Children’s Mercy. She also has her advanced Nurse Practitioner license but is not using that currently.
Living downtown in a loft is how they started but soon moved to Leawood South shortly before their first child was born. Grace is 6 years old. Eva, who is 4 1/2 years old, came soon afterward. Both girls attend Nativity Parish School. Evan came along just 10 months ago. He is a sweet little boy who loves giving Mommy kisses.
The girls are busy with dancing lessons, and soccer teams, and love their swimming lessons. Even little Evan is taking swimming lessons!
The family loves “being out!” Together, they love hanging out with neighbors, bike rides, bonfires, and attending city events like the Plaza Art Fair, and Leawood South festivities like the Fall Party. Neither Zach nor Tina likes to cook so they load everyone up and go out to dinner multiple times a week. They enjoy weekend breakfast at McClains or Cava Fast for a quick meal. The kids have become very accustomed to going out and it all works great.
Tina says, “Family is the most important thing to us.” Each summer both of Zach and Tina’s sisters and families gather at The Lake of the Ozark for family vacationing. Zach and Tina took all three kids this past January to Disney World and had a great trip. Zach is a Kansas Jayhawks fan and doing his best at “priming” the kids to love being fans. Tina’s parents have even moved to Kansas City so that they would be part of their kid's lives. Family is important.
The Bradleys enjoy their home in Leawood South but may be looking at remodeling sooner than later since the family is going to need some more space…for a new baby due in June!
