I can't believe that it's only been a week since we were in NYC. For those that don't know, Roger and I had the pleasure of attending a workshop at the Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx to learn of a method of communication for Juliana. We had an amazing time! (Side note - on this trip I also discovered that I over use the word "amazing". Currently looking for a replacement word. Suggestions welcome)
Our flight out was a bit of a pain in the butt. Apparently the door to our plane had some difficulty so after we were all boarded and buckled in we had to de-plane and wait for a replacement. This pretty much sucked because we had plans in NYC. Our friends, the Gutierrez' were having a "Dareoke" fundraiser for Girl Power 2 Cure. Better late than never. We had a blast. No singing but lots of dancing. So much dancing that I accidentally flung my flip camera across the bar (ok, so maybe lots of drinks too) and shattered the lens:( I guess it's a minor casualty to a fun grown up night out.

Here are the super stars singing "You're Just to Good to Be True"
And this beauty was our requested song "Dancing Queen"
So after that fun night it was time to hit the books the next day in class. We learned so much, but more of that to come later.
We had a delicious dinner that night at the Gutierrez' home - but of course completely forgot to take out a camera the whole night. Here we are in Time Square. I can't believe it's always this busy!
Here we are after the second day of training. This is truly an amazing group of women: (From left to right) Dr. Djukic, Stefanie, me, Jenn, Kelly, Suzanna and Monica
