Our had our annual Rock the Block party and it did not disappoint. I spent the evening chasing a toddler and periodically running into my older kids. Cannon had popcorn and a snowcone before dinner was even served and I’m not sure Hunter ever made his way to the dinner table – although he did find the cotton candy.
Steve and I co-chaired the minute to win-it games which had us all laughing and entertained. Nothing brings a neighborhood together like seeing your neighbors wear pantyhose on their head – or watching them chuck marshmallows at each other.
That smirk and those cheeks with his backlit hair – this is what I love about toddlers. I could leave the screaming and the attitude – just give me the cheeks!
A new feature to the block party this year was a firetruck and police car that the kids could sit in and touch all the buttons. Briggs and Cannon stayed busy for a while and Hunter made a very brief appearance – just long enough to give his great pose.
If this block party wasn’t so much work I’d request it to be semi-annual. But being on the committee shows you just how much work this production is – but we all agree the benefit far outweighs the cost.
