Block Party

Almost 400 people came to our neighborhood block party! This year was a western theme and it was really fun. We had a bunch of activities for the kids (pony rides, pumpkin decorating, line dancing and more) and it was catered by a local restaurant I love. I am so lucky that my neighborhood is so close and everyone makes an effort to know their neighbors.


Pumpkin decorating (note the gingham tablecloths)


Some of the finished pumpkins


Before the crowds started showing up!


The moonbounces (apparently now they are called bouncies?). An hour later they were filled with jumping kids!
