Mov'in on Up

We went last week to check out PD's new office space.  I don't want to come across as bragging about this... blech...that would be so tacky.  But I do try to get excited for PD when he gets rewarded in some way for all his hard work.  I am so glad he is getting to do what he is so good at, but it equals many many hours away from home and not many perks.  So I was excited, (as were the girls) to see his great new downtown office.  Of course, we would all trade it in a minute if he could eat dinner with us, but lets celebrate what we have right?

Since the first time, 14 years ago, that PD brought me to Columbus, I have loved the Leveque tower.  They light it up at night, sometimes with different colors.  Now the PKs love it too.  So they were pretty happy to spot it right outside PD's new office window.  Below is a view from another floor, but you can see that the statehouse is right across the street.

Here we are in a conference room with the great seal of Ohio.

If you are local, and you also love downtown is a great children's book my friend told me about.  The bird, a Peregrine Falcon, flies around Columbus looking at all the great Columbus attractions and landmarks.  Kids LOVE seeing all the places they have been. Also, you know, a family of Peregrine Falcons lives atop the Rhodes tower downtown Columbus.  You can check in on them via a live nest box video-cam.

Very cool! I did not know that about the falcons!! And yay for for the hubs! He absolutely deserves the new fancy office. And you're allowed to brag about if you like. Your family has sacrificed so much, I'd even let you "name drop" here and there. :) Congrats!!

Way to go PD. I love his view and I hope you get to see it often. You are your hubby's biggest cheerleader to "brag" on!
