Looking to meet Gujarati Moms with Young Kids

I’m looking to meet Gujarati moms with young children/toddlers. Mine are 3 years and 7 months old and we live in the PH/Concord area.
I would love to meet you and hang out, have playdates (with or without the kids!), drink wine, eat. Maybe even learn how to make khandvi!

New to tri-valley – how is the life for kids?

Hello, I am a mom with 2 kids moving from Greater Boston. I would like to know the life of kids in California (espl. tri-valley) – with so many Indian families and kids and great weather, do kids get a chance to play outside everyday – Can I see communities where kids are outside playing? I really miss that here in my community here. I am wondering how is life for the  kids there? Are they constantly in shuttle between classes – How do the after school program look like – it is mostly enrichment and less play? If someone  can give me a perspective it will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Desis in Livermore?

New to Bay area ,We are a family with two kids ( 6 and 3 year old), I work in Pleasanton and my husband works in Cupertino. We are considering buying a single family house in south Livermore area (Sunset elementary or Emma Smith elementary) . We will feel a lot more confident about our decision to buy in Livermore if we knew of few Indian families in the area. How are these schools in comparison to Pleasanton and Dublin schools? Any other Pros and Cons of buying a home in Livermore? Thanks in advance for your inputs.
