Meet the LaPiana Family!
The LaPianas are most recognized as the “crazy family” with three super loving English Bulldogs. How the dogs all joined the family is a funny story!
In 2012 Paul and Kim broke the news to their 14-year-old son, Hayden, and 12-year-old daughter, Kenna, they were moving to New Jersey from Dana Point, CA for a work opportunity. During the hysteria of the breaking news the kids asked for a real English Bulldog, thus, Bulldog number one, Carter, joined the family. Six months after landing in Basking Ridge, NJ they had to break the news they were moving again – this time to Charlotte, NC. With the move, came Bulldog number two, Lola. They say third time’s a charm, right? Well, bulldog number three, Phoebe, joined the family when the kids convinced their mom she would need another dog when they left for college. The family is now complete and the dogs had the BEST summer exploring the Promontory trails, sunbathing at the Bocci Ball court, hiking near the Provo River, and meeting new Promontory neighbors.
Paul is a Southern California native, growing up in Laguna Hills. Kim was born in Wisconsin and did her undergrad at Illinois State before moving to the Gold Coast in Australia at 22 to beat the cold. Paul and Kim met while working together at the Hard Rock Cafe in La Jolla, CA. Paul was a busboy and Kim a waitress. They were both attending San Diego State – Kim was getting her Masters and Paul a finance degree. They’ve been married for 22 years and are currently living in Dallas to be closer to their kids who are attending Southern Methodist University. Hayden, now 20 is a sophomore in the Cox School of Business and 18-year-old, Kenna is a freshman and interested in studying interior design and fashion. They are both loving college life at SMU!
Welcome to Promontory, LaPianas! So happy to have another great family join our community.
