No pics, just news

Well, we have arrived in New England! I (Chris) arrived in Boston with the babies and my college friend, Lisa, on Wednesday morning after a crazy overnight flight from Oakland. Penny, Bear, Cosmo, and Milo arrive in Vermont today, along with Penny's brother, Raymond. While all of us are blind with exhaustion, we are safe and sound and so excited to move into our new house on Monday. I am heading to Vermont tomorrow and can't wait for our family to be reunited!

The babies did great on the flight from Oakland to Las Vegas. They slept the entire time, from take-off to landing! At the Vegas airport both babies screamed bloody murder for about 30 minutes. Good times! You could easily read peoples' thoughts: "Please god, don't let those babies be on my next flight!" On the Vegas to Boston flight, the babies screamed some and slept some. On both flights, we were lucky enough have three seats to ourselves, which gave us a bit of extra room. I was so glad to touch down in Boston and it has been great to be at Lisa's condo for the the past few days.

In moving news, the moving day went unbelievably well! We want to thank all our friends who helped out and made the day so smooth! Everything was loaded onto the truck in under two hours! Friends helped with loading boxes, holding and feeding babies, cleaning, packing the last few boxes, and vacuuming. Thank you a million times over to everyone! We are expecting the moving truck to arrive in VT around August 23rd.

We will have pictures up soon, after we are settled in the new house. Stay tuned...

Glad you guys are safe and sound. I am sure it will feel great to see Penny on Monday and be one step closer to your new home. I wasn't sure you would have any news up yet, but I am glad I checked. We have been thinking about you and sending positive traveling vibes your way. Hugs.
