Daphne loves spending time with her husband, Neil, and her two children, Kelton and Porter. Her son is a competitive gymnast and her daughter is a varsity cheerleader, and they keep busy with their sports activities. Everyone knows her family by their weekend car—a purple Jeep Wrangler—which they love driving with the top off on warm weekend days or when the North Texas Jeep Club has an event. Daphne also loves to travel, particularly on cruises or back home to Colorado to spend time with friends and family. When she has some time at home, she likes to make pottery by throwing some clay on the wheel, or to make bread completely from scratch by grinding her own flour and making her own natural yeast.
