The Pepper Place Market has it figured out. Families flock there every Saturday morning, the parents love the music, the art, the crafts, the fresh produce, but the kids...not so much. Once they've had a Steel City Pop and run through the mister, they are probably dragging their feet and asking the dreaded question, "When are we going home???" Problem solved at this tent sponsored by the McWane Center and Fruit Shoot. A tub full of Legos etc. to keep kids safe and their hands busy!

As many of you who read this blog now, I have had the pleasure of photographing the Bell Center Run at the Mercedes Marathon for the last several years. The Bell Center for Early Intervention provides a variety of support for children ages birth to 3 years who are at risk for developmental delay. Named for their former director Betty Bell, this is a loving place that provides emotional and physical support for their precious children and their families. Many, but certainly not all, are Down Syndrome kiddos, but this month it's all about bringing awareness to this chromosome abnormalities that affects approximately 1 in 1000 babies born each year. Today one of the very excited Bell Runners, there may be more this month!

This lovely original art by my Birmingham artist friend Sarah Soule Webb, has been donated for auction to benefit Community Kitchens, but this is just one of many beautiful cathedrals she has painted.

Thursday evening I attended the opening of Arthur Price's newest work at the newly renovated Gallery 1930, in English Village. Art and his wife Caren are friends and I think he is one of the finest artist I know. If you are in the Birmingham area, don't miss this beautiful exhibit.

My friends the Adams, had some very special visitors last week, their adorable grandtwins who flew in from Colorado. They decided to host a little bake sale of their homemade goodies to earn money for a shopping trip to Smith's Variety. My Birmingham readers understand this! Eva and I had a grand time shopping for cookies, cupcakes and dog treats. How could we resist these two?? I can't wait to hear how the profits were spent!
