I’ve always wanted to live in a neighborhood where neighbors come together to share good times. We had the honor of attending two neighborhood parties today! If you count our party on Saturday, that’s a lot of backyard fun on our street this week.
Early afternoon we headed over to enjoy company next door –
Peek-a-boo to our backyard! It’s so funny how we rarely see our yard from different angles.
We enjoyed watching games of corn hole and reminiscing about our days of slip and sliding. (I don’t think the baby would like it very much if I were to slide down this on my bump right now!)
Around dinnertime, we filled up on some snacks – chips, pasta salad, a chicken sandwich on GH Cheddar Garlic, some veg and cookie bites!
Later in the evening we went by another neighbors’ and were fed again – delicious flank steak and corn + bean salad, plus plenty of sparkling water.
The kiddos enjoyed the sparklers we brought over – they make awesome photos even before it’s dark!
Some of the group had the pleasure of drinking juicy red wines, including this special wine from their family vineyard: Casa Nuestra in Napa. Has anyone had it? Next time I’m in wine country, I must taste it myself (or be lucky enough to go back when another bottle is opened ; ) )! The group raved over it. It smelled heavenly!
We talked well into the evening and learned a great deal about parenting from our neighbors and friends!
And before the night ended, we watched the Cville fireworks from their porch – boom!
