About Our Family


Hello we are the Murasko’s (Paul, Marla, Amanda & Jacob)

We are a fun, loving family of four! Grateful every day for having each other and the blessings that have been bestowed on us.


My husband and I have been married for over ten wonderful years.  We have definitely had our share of worries and struggles, but we as a family have come out on top and are so grateful for what we have – EACH OTHER!

We are your typical family we love to spend time together, love to travel, we love to dance, sing, play games, cook together, clean together and laugh together.

We have been very fortunate to have gone to many different places for family vacations.
