Annual Block Party

The tradition lives on! Neighbor Norma informed people that this was the 20th year that we have been having a Block Party. It's been held the first Monday night after school starts. There were about 70 people in attendance.

We ate chicken, various salads, corn on the cob, real homemade rootbeer, and watermelon. We had a watermelon eating contest that lots of the kids got into. Made for some pretty dirty faces.

Candice eating watermelon is truly a nauseating site....and the sounds of the slurping.......makes ya wanna lose yer appetite. I'm so proud!

It was a great day to be able to slow down and visit with neighbors and enjoy each others company. Kind of sad to see the summer come to an end. Next thing you know, we'll be firing up the snow blowers. Ugh.
