Sailing SF Bay with Team Chico

Is there a better way to welcome Fall to San Francisco than sailing across the Bay? We had a fabulous day Sunday sailing with Team Chico as one of the Live Auction events that helped raise a few dollars to benefit Dan’s family. Thanks to everyone for their generosity and especially my dad for donating a day out on the Bay aboard Quark Speed.

Evolution of Dance

Ben has been working on his dance moves lately.  I figure if he can master the evolution, he will be well on his way.  Like his mom, he’s addicted to the hit Fox show "Think You Can Dance"
Stay tuned for Ben…Bustin’ a Move!

Reclaiming my blog

It’s time to reclaim my blog as it seems like I’ve fallen off the wagon here the last 4 months.  With friends and family asking where are the updates, it’s been  too long without a post, picture or even a recording.  It’s been eating me up inside and all I can say is somewhere over the last few months, it’s been work, family or some other excuse that’s prevented me from finding a few minutes to stay in touch. 


I think Jeff has the perfect perspective on what this medium can do and thanks for challenging me to point my browser back to the blog and start typing.

 I was reviewing some of my archives and it really is a nice way to document your life, reflect back on what was going on at the time and stay in touch with friends and family so far away. 


So I’m back and with plenty that has happened over the last 4 months and will be posting more frequently. Be sure to drop me a few comments and stay in touch.

The new favorite book arount the house is a classic…."Cat In the Hat"!  The routine is I normally read to Ben at bed time after getting home from work.  Lately, Ben has decided to reverse the table and thinks he can do a better job with bedtime stories.  He’s not too bad for a 3 year old…for your bedtime listening pleasure.
