Labor Day Weekend Block Party

I love my neighbors.  I can't even begin to explain what it means to me to live in a community where I can call my neighbors friends, where my kids can safely ride their bikes in the streets, and where people look out for each other's kids.  We are so blessed.  We had an impromptu party last night, blocking off the street, setting up sprinklers, wading pools, and the BBQ.  Kids and adults all gathered for a good time and delicious food.   Here's a few pictures.  

I'm sorry to see summer coming to an end.  The good news though, is that it's a long weekend, and we're not done with the BBQ's yet!

How lucky you are!

Some great photos there, I especially love the one of the girl leaping through the water.

That is awesome!! Our house in Bellevue was like that and I so miss it!! It is the best (for kids and adults) to call their neighbors friends...it goes along with the saying "it takes a village..."! Have a great rest of your weekend!

Very fun for both the kids and adults :) I too am thankful for neighborhood kids. They are all very much friends.
