Timmery and Austin recently relocated to the Outer Banks to raise their growing family.

Timmery’s parents own The Colington Café which made having a New Year’s baby interesting.

“My mother kept reminding us that New Year’s Eve is the restaurant’s busiest night of the year and we couldn’t have the baby then,” shared Timmery. “Harper was a team player and waited until a few hours after midnight to let us know it was time.”

Spoken like the proud father of a brand new baby girl, Austin added, “We have already had the best year!”
