last night we had our annual block party for national night out. i've loved national night out since i was a kid. back then it was all about decorating my bike with streamers, riding around in the street for hours and staying up until 10pm. some of my best summer memories :) last night it was all about chasing my toddler, which was also fun. haha.
we had a great time hanging out with all of our neighbors - some we know well, and some new ones we met for the first time. at one point we heard a loud crack and watched a giant tree branch come crashing down.
normally we set up the food tables in front of our neighbors' house exactly where this tree branch fell, but this year we set up everything in front of our house instead. so thankful we weren't in that spot...some one totally would have gotten hit. very scary!
there are so many kids on our block these days, some even within months of azalea's age. i connected with their moms and we're gonna set up a playdate soon. i'm pretty excited about that. did your block or neighborhood do anything for national night out?
