A couple ladies in the neighborhood and I wanted to get together. When the subdivision was still being built, the builder had a couple of block parties. We wanted to keep the tradition alive and get one going.
A couple weeks ago, the Bear and I distributed fliers announcing the event. The Bear helped me put them into the mailboxes.
When: Saturday, May 31
Time: 5pm - 7pm
Please bring your main dish, beverages, & blankets/chairs.
Please also bring a dish to share.
Last names A - L: side dish/salad M - Z: dessert
Last night, the ladies and I met up in the cul-de-sac. Our kids all just happened to converge into the cul-de-sac (like normal) and we ironed out some details.
Neighbor#1: Music, hula hoops, and lemonade
Neighbor#2: Jump castle (one of her friends does this for a business), water balloons, portable grill
Me: Water bottles, balloons
We're already got some people that are contributing tables. We're each bringing paper towels and whatever paper plates and plastic utensils we've got in our pantries.
So hopefully a bunch of neighbors show up. Neighbors that we don't know, but will get to know. The kids should have a blast. I can't believe we're going to have a jumping castle! Woohoo! Good time for all!
