About

Mildly Amusing Musings started back in 2008 as the personal blog of Elisabeth Starr. Hey! That's me! *waves*
In the summer of 2009 I married this super cool guy named Silas Snider.
Silas saved me from the wilderness of Oregon introduced me to the hustle and bustle of Pittsburgh.
We then proceeded to make a baby who joined us in the summer of 2010. We named him Gideon.
He's cute.
In 2012 we left Pittsburgh to seek our fortunes in Seattle.
A few short months later we had another baby. We named him Ezekiel.
He's cute too.
We settled into Seattle life.
In the early Spring of 2013 the boys and I started getting around Seattle via bike.
And by the Fall we had graduated to a Bullitt cargo bike.
In the winter of 2014 we welcomed Miriam to our family.
 Then we immediately moved to San Francisco to pursue a job opportunity for Silas.
We got rid of our car and now get around exclusively by bike, bus, and train.
This blog is an collection of thoughts on the many things that interest our family, me in particular, and a chronicle of what we have been up to. 
Peace to you from the Snider family.
And joy.
