The weather was perfect for the Kiwanis annual 5K run. We had 136 runners and Michael Raleigh pulled Mens First Place with a 19:17 time, while Jessie Stone captured the Womens First with 19:49. Everyone headed to the Civic Center to "carb-up" on pizza and beans and rice. Pictured are winners receiving their awards and folks enjoying the food.

On Saturday, in celebration of Mothers Day Deborah and I spent the day in New Orleans where we shopped and had a lovely dinner at Paschal Manele's out in the Garden District. The shrimp, crab and scallops were devine, topped off with magnificent bread pudding.

Tonight Deborah and I celebrated Cinco de Mayo at La Cazuela in Saraland with four of our church friends. We then drove to the Saenger Theatre for the Mobile Symphony"s "Musica De Las Americas" featuring Bandoneon instrumentalist Hector del Curto. A bandoneon is similar to a concertina accordion and dates back hundreds of years.
