Checking In

Hi there! Sorry the blog has been semi impersonal lately.

The wedding this weekend was wonderful, and, as expected, the bride was GORGEOUS!
Pictures will be coming of this soon.

Our time out at the Universal Resort was wonderfully relaxing as well. Ian's parents took us to see Star Trek (I know, I know, bet you didn't place me as a trekkie, huh?) and the next night to see the movie Wolverine. Only afterwards did we find out they had already seen both movies! Sheesh.

We spent our day park hopping with our wonderfully inexpensive passes (Costco people!) and then I lost mine :(

Ian called up the next morning to the park, and they said they could print a new one, no problem! :)

We arrived in Richmond, Monday afternoon, after some very bumpy flights. Ian survived without the patch, with is a miracle for him! The conference center, where we are staying is phenomenal, and I am looking forward to our two month stay this fall.

Today was the most important day (to me anyways,) because we got specific information on our salaries, benefits, and packing directions! It's all becoming so real to me!

The library here is Amazing as well! Come on, did you think I wouldn't mention the books?!? It's a library meant to inform us on our new job location, and when we arrived, they handed us a dossier full of photo copies of articles, and whisked us off to our own personal study space, complete with a stack of books all about our country. They also included DVD's on the religion and people, and in our space, we have a TV/DVD player with headphones to learn more.

It's really amazing.

The food here is incredible as well, and I am looking forward to tomorrow morning's Caramel French Toast the most.

I hope everyone is doing well, and I can't wait to get caught up on what is happening in your life!
