Tour de Fleur and other news

Michael and Sarah-in-Law came to visit this weekend. We had a great time! Saturday was our second annual Tour de Fleur run, which starts and finishes at the Dallas Arboretum. It's 20K (12.4 miles) around White Rock Lake and through the Lakewood residential neighborhood (which is gorgeous.) There are bands and drum lines set up all along the trail which serve as great motivators for running. More bands play at the Arboretum and there are tents set up with free food, drink, and massages on the lawn. This is my favorite race of the year!

Sarah and I had lunch with her sister, Ginny, at Breadwinner's after the race. Then she and I did a little shopping in the boutiques on Lovers Lane. It is wonderful to have such a sweet sister-in-law. She has a great sense of humor and is always fun to be around. I wish she and Michael lived a little closer so we could enjoy their company more often.

Jeremy got a new chair this weekend. It replaced the hideous blue recliner in the living room. Unfortunately the blue recliner has not gone into full retirement and now temporarily resides in the sitting room.

Patton and I went to the dog park this morning. He met a little girl Boston. They were so cute playing together. I wonder if dogs recognize their own breed. He got a bath and is napping on the couch. A tired dog makes a happy dog owner!

In news at school/work: I had my first 911 call of the year. A little boy with asthma and no medications at school was running outside during a fitness class and came to the clinic in respiratory distress. I did everything I knew to do sans medicine to help open his airways to no avail and ended up calling EMS. He was treated, seen by the doctor and referred to a specialist. I am hoping this scared his mom into providing medication at school so I can help keep her child safe.
