Seattle with Kids!

    Just found your blog while searching for Life in Seattle with kids. There is a possibility that we move to the USA from India (our present location). SO i was checking out best cities to move in with 2 children – 10 year girl and 5.5 year boy.

    May be your blog is a good place for me to find some answers.
    Though my brother n his family are in NYC, I dont want to be there as its too noisy, rushed up, etc.
    Want a more peaceful, beautiful, lots of adventure & extra curricular activities, good libraries, museums, parks, etc kind of place. I love photography n wish to have my cafe in future. Me n my daughter are vegetarians. And we believe in organic/farm fresh eating. SO, please do give your inputs.

    Many thanx,

      I’m a little biased but I do think it’s a lovely place for families. There are so many neat things to do. You can have city kids and raise chickens if you want to. There are good schools and so many neat things to do and it feels like there are always new places to explore. I am really thankful we live here:)
