We're a typical Silicon Valley family! My husband and I both work in the high-tech industry, and we have 2 sons, ages 13 and 10, who go to school and love sports. As a family we enjoy tennis, soccer, football, basketball, biking, reading, cooking, and playing games. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats who would be boarded elsewhere during an exchange, but the house is definitely pet-friendly. We're looking forward to trying out a home exchange for our next family vacation.
