Last night was National Night Out. Did your block do anything fun?
We have been invited, in years past and this year, to the block party of the street behind us- our alley neighbors, but have never gone. This year I've been getting more and more involved with the Cleveland Neighborhood Association and found myself as a block party leader. Yippee!! So it was time our actual street block off the roads and had ourselves a true block party!
We had a really fun time getting ready for the festivites. My man and I provided root beer floats to the neighbors. We had snacks from others homes and my neighbor and dear friend across the street, Mel, even blew up her bouncy house for the kids to jump in. We had a great time!
But I realized, even with all the planning and organizing, and door to door knowing I did, none of this would even be possible without my neighbors. I'm so glad we live where we live and I know God has us here for a reason. They teach me more than they'll ever know about what it means to love.
Sorry, no pics, I was a tad bit busy :)
