Yes, We are ALIVE!!!

So many of you have written to ask if we're ok ... YES, we are! Seems time has slipped away from me again and I've neglected the blog. SORRY!!!

The month or so before the beginning of April I spent getting ready to attend the 44th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest in Orlando. As I'm not writing this blog entry from some beach on an island somewhere, you know I didn't win the million dollars! But, I had a wonderful time none-the-less. And, yes, some of you did see me on Food TV in an ad for the Bake-Off. The ad ran for about 6 weeks and was such a fun experience for me. Hopefully I didn't let my "inner diva" out too much after seeing myself on tv! (And if I did, please don't tell me!)

After I arrived back home we left for a 5 day trip to Chicago as part of a field trip Kevin takes his students on. While they were off at exciting (yes, I wrote that with a straight face ... right!) places involving finance and banking, Sarah and I spent time in Chinatown. At first she was hesitate to take much of it in, but after hitting a few stores we came upon a wonderful restaurant that she enjoyed so much. She liked it so much we went back the next day. We didn't know until we arrived that in the Chicago Chinatown the predominant language is Cantonese. Unfortunately Sarah can't understand Cantonese.

Now we are back home and winding up the school years. Kevin gives his last final today and Sarah will be done on the 25th. I think they both are ready for a break!

We do have some exciting news. In mid-June Sarah will be unveiling a project she's working on that will help others and help herself, be fun and be work, teach her things and hopefully help her teach others things .... the list goes on. We hope you'll stop back and check in then!

I'll leave you with a few photos from our trip to the Field Museum .... apparently we are silly most of the time!

So glad you are alive!! And now I'm very curious about Sarah's project. You must post more often so that we can know what's up. Also love the pictures.

Glad to see you are back. It sure looks like you had tons of fun in Chicago.
Can't wait to see what Sara is up to in mid June.

It's good to see you back in blog land. I'm so eager to hear more in the coming weeks about Sarah's new "project".

If you ever make it to San Francisco, I bet Sarah would absolutely fall in love with their Chinatown. San Francisco is a fun place anyhow. I'm sure she'd get a kick out of the really curvy street and the large hills in the city, etc.
