Hello from Alexandria, Virginia
We are a family of four, two professional adults and two boys, David & Lisa, Brennan and Evan. David works for the Federal Government and Lisa works for the Recording Industry Association, both located in Washington, DC. Two boys, Brennan and Evan. Lisa grew up in Alexandria, while Dave grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
We enjoy the outdoors tremendoulsy, trying to keep two active boys busy. We live near to gorgeous Great Falls Virginia where hiking trails abound! We belong to a private swim club where the boys (including Dave!) spend most summer evenings. We are an active family, always on the go - off to play tennis, frisbee golf, bike rides, hiking....just to enjoy spending time together. We love being close to Washington, DC where there are endless things to do at all times of the year. Our boys are very respectful of personal property. We live in a very clean and organized home and they are well behaved and have good manners.
We do not have pets (much to the dismay of Brennan and Evan). Our basement is a paradise for the young. We have a footballl table, air hockey, pinball and ping pong! There is a tv, stereo and dvd player with shelves full of games and puzzles. It's a great place for the kids to hang out. Our home has a fully stocked gourmet kitchen for anyone who enjoys cooking. Brennan runs Cross Country for his high school and Evan plays travel soccer and lacrosse. I think that about covers everything about us!

We are looking for a summer trip to Ireland for two weeks. Any time in the Summer would work for us.
We love to explore off the beaten path and non-traditional parts of cities and towns. We like to be out walking if possible, and prefer public transportation as a great way to see more and have more options.
We like good food and unusual shopping adventures.
Loved every single aspect of this exchange. The family has become great friends over time, but also their location is superbe. You can benefit from all of what DC has to offer, whereas the pittoresque Old Town of Alexandria is nearby and offers a different view of the area. The house is large and has all you can ask for and even more, most likely. We would do it any time again.
This experience could not have been any better. They are the most wonderful and respectful family, with whom we wish to remain close friends with for a long time to come. Their home is beautiful and the location is perfect. It was the best vacation I have ever had!
