we're here and alive.

Whew! It's been quite the last 2 weeks..after passing through 9 states and 33 hours of being in the car, we are happy to be here in Las Vegas. The warm air greeted us, and we are excited to get use to everything here, to get all moved in, to find all the hidden treasures here in Vegas and to start feeling like we are "home". Booker and Lincoln have already made good friends with the neighbor boy and have already had some great playdates in our "backyard". Beej is loving the commute to work...3 minute walk and coming home for lunch. Maizie and I have enjoyed being buddies getting the house all unpacked. Starting here has really made us all pull together, but we couldn't have made it here without so much help....so..
*thanks mom and dad for braving those long days in the car with 3 kids
*thanks tod and kim for braving those crazy mountain days and everything before and after and getting our stuff to our place safe and sound.
*josh and kris, for letting us crash your house for a whole week
*our incredible friends in columbus, especially for all of your help the last little bit we were there...we miss you too much.
*and beej..for bringing us to amazing ohio and for all your hard work to get us back to vegas. we love you. (more on graduation to come)

I will start catching up on the last two weeks soon, but for now, just a quick snippet of two of our ohio souvenirs: a degree and of course, little maizie.:)
