Without a hitch

Well the block party went off without a hitch. We had a great turn out, tons of food, way too many leftovers. The kids had a great time playing in the street together. Everybody got along. The adults visited and got to know each other better. A couple of families on the block were out of town and others had family visiting-who came to the block party too! The older people on the block loved the idea and everybody thought we should do it every year. We only had one neighbor who chewed us out about blocking off the street. Apparently she was having a party that night and had to move it since nobody could drive to her house. She said she "hated" block parties and wouldn't be coming! Yeesh. Once the sunset the bugs came out and most people cleared out. By 9:30 the kids were beyond tired and filthy dirty so we headed home for baths and bedtime. What a great way to spend an evening...
