Overcast Weather Fails to Spoil Good Time at Park

Cheri and I had some extra energy, so we hopped off the couch and went for a drive.  We ended up at Fountainhead Regional Park and Occoquan Regional Park.  I took the opportunity to shoot away.

The rest of the photos from this group can be found on my flickr.

  2. Hi Eric,

    I’m with the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and this year we are hosting dozens of interactive educational programs, “Understanding Inflammatory Bowel Diseases: What Every Patient Needs to Know,” in cities around the country. This event, open to all patients, family members, caregivers, and community members, is hosted by the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation and will be led by local physician experts.

    I’m writing to ask you if you can post information about this event series on your blog. Our experts in patient care and research will provide an in-depth overview of IBD, including:

    Guidance on how to recognize symptoms
    How to manage your disease
    Current therapies and emerging research
    Disease and treatment-related side effects
    Emotional wellness and resources
    Question-and-answer session
    You can find a list of events at http://www.ccfa.org/info/understanding . It would be great if you could let me know if you are able to blog about this…also please let me know if you have any questions!

    Thank you,
    Sara
