Just four short hours after Chase's birthday party, I was on my way to St Louis to catch a plane early on Sunday morning to the Dominican Republic. The MDA each year puts on a Travel and Learn program for our dentists and I got to go this year for the first time. It was a little work...but mostly play. It was seven long day of mostly relaxing on the beach and soaking up the sun. We had CE programs a couple mornings too. It was beautiful and very, very nice but I really did miss my boys terribly. They survived but I am pretty sure they missed me...well at least I know Chase did :).
