us when he isn't traveling across the country for work.  We are all devoted and rowdy Seattle Seahawks fans and have had season tickets for thirteen  years.  Traveling to Seattle is always a treat for us because my family and many of our friends are there.  Aside from that: Adam is an avid golfer, Evan loves anything outdoors, and I am an obsessive reader.  Travel, cooking, music, and hanging out in our backyard are just a few of the other things our family enjoys.  We have a so many friends that share our lives on a daily basis and we just love to spend time with them.  Two years ago Evan began attending The Gan Garrett Jewish Preschool.  Since day one our group of friends has expanded exponentially!  We could not be happier with the school and the people involved. Our lives and hearts are full and one of the reasons for that is The Gan.

the challenges and sometimes we run a little low on patience but we do love being witness to their growth as they absorb the world around them. We are fascinated by their curiosity as they form interests seemingly independent but sometimes as a reflection of our own interests. Ari is enamored with rockets and planes, enjoys the water and learned to snorkel on our last vacation. Matan's interests seem to be molded by his big brother's but he has a greater affection for trains and building tracks. They are both fascinated with volcanoes and mountains and most recently telling knock knock jokes. We all love the great outdoors and are happy to be camping, floating a river, hiking, and biking. We travel often for pleasure and sometimes for work and we always look forward to making more memories with our children.
