?? Utah ??

Yep, we moved! To Utah!! It's been a crazy 2 weeks, here's the story-
Brian was interviewing in Portland, well they called them informational interviews, so basically just to help with interviewing skills, look at portfolio, etc. Brian went to about three of these interviews and from what they said about the market in Portland, no one was hiring, and a few companies were down sizing. Brian came home a little discouraged but then checked his email and in the inbox was an email from Prescott Muir and firm in SLC that he had talked to back in May, he hadn't talked with them since then so we hadn't thought anything of it and in the email he offered Brian a job!! It was everything we had been praying for but in a different location and we love Salt Lake and now we are here!
All of our stuff was in a storage unit anyways so all we had to do was load up the truck and make the drive back to Salt Lake City. Will did great on the drive, this kid has traveled so much already and he's only 5 months!
Since it was so quick we decided to have a little fun with those that didn't know we were moving - so basically my whole family. My Dad came out to help us with the drive back but we didn't tell my mom and or the rest of family so we showed up with the moving truck and surprised them! It was great to see her face :) Amy and the girls were fun to surprise also. We are living with the parents until we find a house, that is fun, we get to look for a house. We are so excited to be back in Utah with all our family.

Clara! I didn't get to say goodbye. I was visiting family in Utah, so we must have passed each other somewhere along the line. I am glad to hear things have worked out for you, we'll keep tabs on that little squirt of yours. Thanks for being such a fun friend.
