We'll ALL Scream !

So ... just in case you were confused and/or really had a need to know about The Timeline, as it relates to Sonny-Boy and the Mrs., here goes:

June: Got married, honeymooned and moved in with us. Shortly thereafter, Sonny-Boy got a job in Alacante Spain.
September: They left for Spain, but were still waiting on the work Visas, so ... at worst ... they had ... at most ... 90 days there.
December: Worst case scenerio is alive and well and they leave Spain promptly on the 90th day. After the adventure of a lifetime, fyi.
January: Visas are nowhere in sight and Plan B is put into effect. Plan B involves a trip to New York City where they get umpteen interviews and multiple job offers apiece. Yes ... I am proud ... and I am not afraid to say it.
Today ... this very day: I just got back from the airport where they boarded the plane for their new life. These pictures were taken at our "going-away" dinner a few nights ago. Mexican food for dinner and ...

... Baskin Robbins Ice Cream for dessert. "Why?" you may innocently ask, because you know that there is never room for dessert after Mexican food! Because Mrs. Boy is going to be a marketing supervisor for Baskin-Robbins and we had some free coupons already. You know the significance of this, do you not?

Free Ice Cream. Lots of Free Ice Cream. Possibly for Life.

And Sonny-Boy is an architect, so we could be eating it in a pretty sweet home.

The End.

Thank you for the explanation. I didn't understand why they came home from Spain. So I really needed that timeline!

Props to the happy couple on (1) their marriage--they're a perfect couple (2) on their Spain adventure (3) on their great job offers in NYC & (4) for their courage in living in the City (actually Brooklyn, which may be more courageous as well as more affordable) and adapting to the most urban of U.S. urban environments (but, they are quick to point out, one of the safest these days).

Props to Mrs. Es & ShH for getting pictures of them without goofy faces. They are both attractive, stylish & highly photogenic, but due to longstanding and inexplicable personal hang-ups over their appearance, particularly in pictures, they are wont to make silly faces at the camera (which are often cute but not fully representative of their handsome selves).
