Us in Hawaii, on the island of Kaua'i. We love getting out into nature wherever we are.

Do you consider yourself religious or spiritual?

I consider myself spiritual. Life is a mysterious, ineffable, wonderful thing, and a joy to experience and share with others.

Barret

We love to travel, especially to spots as pretty as this one in Slovenia.

We were in a "dream pop" band called Night Cadet, and still love to make music together.

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

Staring at the night sky reminds me of happy childhood summers spent by a lake, where my family and I would stay up late enough to lay on a blanket and look for shooting stars.

This is the view from our new home in Bremerton, WA. We can't be more thrilled to be living here!

My favorite place in the World is...

If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

Can I say both?! The sailboat definitely appeals, because between wind and fish it's the low-budget option, plus a captain's hat would go well with my mustache. ;) Just maybe on a lake, not the ocean!

Barret

We are the best choice because…

We are unique. We are kind. We are fun! We are dedicated towards teaching a child self love, compassion, empathy and pride. We are dedicated to the practice of anti-racism. We are cool. We are warm.

Seth

My neighborhood is a good place to raise a family because…

It is close to the city, the mountains AND the ocean.

Seth

What is the best word to describe your family?

Rambunctious!

Seth

If you had to live on an RV or sailboat for the rest of your life, which would it be?

Sailboat! I love being on the water. Though, if I'm completely honest, I'm terrified of the open seas. I'd have to stay close to the shore at all times.

Seth

What scares you?

racism, religious fundamentalism, white supremacy and hate.

Seth

If I could have dinner with anyone -- dead or alive -- I would pick...

This is the easiest question ever: my mom, who passed away in January. The answer to this question will never ever change.

Seth

What is the best word to describe your family?

The word for both the family I was born into and my chosen family: Love. Though we have our little differences here and there, we deeply care and want only the best for one another.

Barret

Dogs or cats?

I find this to be the cruelest question imaginable! How can a person choose!?

Seth

Three years from now, I hope our birth mom is…..

Safe, healthy, in love with herself, kind and surrounded by friends.

Seth

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you look at the night sky?

The song "Emily" by Joanna Newsom.
