Look out Seattle, here we come!

After great deliberation, Erin, Chris, DJ, and I have decided to move and take the job in Seattle. YA! We had a long discussion around a magic 8 ball. A few shakes later and we knew what we needed to do. Get our umbrellas out. Now we just have to pack and drive to Washington. Yes all 4 of us trapped in a car together driving across the country. Wish us luck!

Bring it on rain; we're ready for you!

Will Work for Chocolate

Yeah, forget grass. If I can only work for one thing I want it to be something yummy. So the second trip we took for a on-site interview was in Portland, Oregon. It was 2 days after we got back from Boston. Lots of flying time! Anyway Erin didn't have to give a presentation this time and interviewing was old hat by now. So we got the day off! First, we thought we should go relax. You know lots of stress trying to keep Erin on track. So we went to this grotto. It was really pretty.

I feel a little off.

We saw lots of pretty plants. Although I didn't know what they all were.

What kind of tree is that?

I wanted to go for a swim but Chris said no. Apparently, that would have negated all the work we did on Erin early that week. Whatever...

Do you think Erin would be mad if we took a dip?

After we got all destressed we went to be edgimicated. We went to OMSI - Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. They were having the Dinosaurs: China's Ancient Giants exhibit. So we got to see big scary monsters. Like what Erin looks like before she puts her face on in the morning. Oo....scary.

Don't look now but I think something is behind us.

Roar! I'm a Tuojiangosaurus and I'm going to eat you.

So after it was all said and done we got to go lots of places. And Erin interviewed with lots of people. She got more offers than I can count on all my hooves. But then again I can't count... Now we just have to wait to see who she goes with. Will it be Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Washington, or another state? She always did like to keep us moving. I'll check my Magic Eight ball later and let you know.

Will Work for Grass!

Spring brought about a turn of events. Erin got laid off work so we have been busy helping her look for a new job and not blogging as much. Job hunting is so much harder than actual work. But she got a lot of interviews and even a few on-site visits. So while she was in side sweating the interview process we got to go out on the towns and play!!! Ya!!!

The first place we went was Boston, Mass. But before we could play we had to help Erin work on her interview presentation. We sat in the hotel room going over and over it. It reminded us of her Defense practices. Twitch...

Remember not to giggle when you say Proxy.

After all that hard work and a good night sleep we sent Erin to her interview and we went and played. We got to graze around Boston Commons. Then we went on the Freedom Trail. It was really cool. We got to see Mother Goose's grave and got our picture with a colonial.

Who is this guy? He has funny cloths and a wicked grip.
