Dog Days of Summer Recap

My family really enjoyed the Dog Days of Summer event earlier this month.
Siloam Springs' canines headed Downtown with their owners for a morning of fun!
We liked the parade best of all!
But the rescue dog demonstration was a close second.
Have you ever seen a dog climb up and down a ladder?  Me neither.  And, yes, I was impressed!
Make plans to attend next year's event.  It's always the first Saturday in August.

New Bikes

With the weather being a bit cooler, it's the perfect time to check out Dogwood Junction's latest additions.
You can now rent a Terra Tandum Trike and spend an evening biking through our fun Downtown.
Dogwood Junction has a fridge full of cool drinks, so head on down and take a ride!

Races to Run

Are you a runner?  I can't decide if I am one or not.  :-)  
Anyway, for the first time ever, this fall Siloam Springs will be a location where you can participate in a half marathon event!  There are a ton of runners in town, and my guess is this will be a fun event.

One Heart for Justice is sponsoring the event.  More information on the organization and race details can be found here.

The races (5K and half marathon) begin and end Downtown.  There's only one thing left for you to decide...  Will you be running or will you be standing on the sidelines cheering on friends?

Hot Days

It's been a hot summer. 
The other day I heard it just might be the hottest on record.
I hope things are starting to cool down.
 In the meantime, Books on Broadway has great air conditioning.  :-)
It's one of our favorite places to spend a hot end-of-summer afternoon.

I'll see you Downtown!

Quilting Class

Remember when I took that beginning quilting class?
It was such a fun day spent crafting with friends!
Sager Creek Quilts has scheduled some more beginning classes.
It's so much more than a quilting class.  It's simply a good, basic intro to sewing.  Using a Yellow Brick Road pattern, you'll be learning the basics of good piecing, rotary cutting, pressing and proper seams while making a great project. There will be two sessions on Thursday evenings starting Aug. 23 with a second session Aug. 30. Call 524-5244 and talk to Cliff or Pam for more details.

School Supplies

With the start of school, my mind can't stop thinking about school supplies.  
I love them.
And while I don't exactly attend school anymore, I still seem to be able to justify a new notebook or two each year in honor of others starting daily classes.
Four Corners Frame and Design has the most adorable notebooks!
The only question is which one will you choose?

It's a sign!

The other day I headed Downtown for one simple errand.  The bank.  And then I noticed a new sign.
That sign lured me in to its building despite my original determination to stick with my one, quick errand, and before I knew it, I was enjoying a piece of Betty's Quiche at The Cafe on Broadway.  Yum!  This batch was made with heirloom yellow tomatoes fresh from the Farmer's Market.
As if the quiche wasn't enough of a spur-of-the-moment indulgence, I may or may not have brought home a new teapot.
Yes, folks, it's true!  Not only is the Cafe on Broadway sportin' a new sign, they also have tons of new teapots in beautiful colors.

I'll see you Downtown!

PS: Remember to head to the Farmer's Market this morning.  I'm hoping they'll have more tomatoes.

Pretty Pictures

The other day this picture popped up on my facebook wall.
It's a picture taken by JonathanEdward Photography of Downtown's portion of Sager Creek.
I'm a fan of pretty much all of JonathanEdward's photography, but I thought this shot was especially beautiful.
Head over to facebook and like them.  They're one of our many Downtown businesses.
