After weeks of planning - our neighbors, Erin and I wrapped up the first annual block party. The party was a ton of fun and gave us the opportunity to get to spend a day really getting to know many neighbors, their families and to chill out with a lot of our friends.

Block parties rule, hands down. I really think everyone should shut down their block once a year, as it really gives you a whole new perspective on your micro-community. The party brought the block together, and as a result we’re pushing for some help with traffic control (speed bumps) and zoned parking.

Erin hates this photo…but I think she looks really cute in it:


Can’t wait until next year’s block party :)
