Block Party!

From the first day we moved here (3 years ago), we've felt that there was something special about our neighborhood. We feel very blessed to have such amazing neighbors and to live in such a welcoming, and friendly community. we have all made life long friends and have learned what it is to live in community. three years ago we said, "this would be a great street to have a block party on." So this weekend we had our first block party since living here! It was really hot, but we all had so much fun we didn't even notice the high temps!

We had pools, water tables and balloons, kids ran in the street without the fear of cars, we ate great food, played washers and connected with our neighbors over a cold drink...or many cold drinks of choice!
oh, and our community fire department came by with a truck for all the kids to see! They are amazing by the way!

the highlight was when the firefighters got out the hose and let the kids run through the water! It took a while to work up the nerve, but once one brave kid started running, they all joined in!

All in all, it was a blast and I can't wait until next year!
