You have a couple things going on there.

Your padding on the nav was over 300px to the left, which explains why
it was getting kicked down below the logos (it was too wide to stay on
the same horizontal). Change that to 0.

Remove the 3px white border on the #nav. It's not where you think it
is, because of the floats.

Add your background color to #wrap.
