The Bland Family
Glenn was born in Southeast Texas and raised in the small town of Bridge City with his 5 younger siblings where he enjoyed riding horses and playing sports. He found the love of his life early on and married his high school sweetheart, Sumar (pronounced 'summer' (and her entire tight-knit Cajun family!)) in 2003. They soon had their first child, John Paul. Not long after his son was born, he began his new career as an electrician. While visiting family in Frisco every hurricane season, they fell in love with the Dallas suburbs. So in 2008, Glenn and Sumar decided to leave the small town life behind and moved to the bustling, fast-paced and ever expanding DFW. In 2013 they welcomed their second child, Katherine. The Bland family has planted their roots in the Little Elm/Frisco Texas area, where their future is very bright!
