Labor Day Weekend: Sunday

Third Annual Hunters Mill Block Party

The year that we moved to Hunters Mill several families got together and threw a block party for the entire neighborhood. It was held on Sunday evening and everyone brought a dish. There was a band and free water and soft drinks. I loved the idea as we had just moved here in April and didn't know a lot of the people who lived around us. We brought candy apple salad and NO ONE ate it and then they threw it away so every year since we have brought Potato Salad...from Sam's. Every year it grows and they encourage family and friends to attend. This year we brought my Grandmother, Father, Sister, Nephew and Brother-in-law.

With something in her mouth. I have noticed that almost every picture taken this past week she has had something in her mouth, maybe she's finally getting more teeth!
Our nephew, X-Man.
He was quite the hit at the block party. There seemed to be a lot of babies and toddlers this year.
X-man and my brother-in-law, Chris. Four families in one cul-de-sac get together and rent tables and umbrellas and supply the paper products and drinks, as well as hire the band and rent trash cans. And a porta jon. Yeah, they aren't that friendly with their neighbors as to share their restrooms. The last two years we have owned the house right up the street (our Spec house) and have been able to use that rest room, thank goodness. When we were building our house I used to drive almost ten minutes away to use the restroom at Sheetz (which was only a little better).

That is our nieghbor Tom, they live next to us, they are really nice. His band, The Groove Monkey's performed this year. When we moved here Tom and Pam really took us in and we have become really good friends over the past two and a half years.
