  1. Oh boy, water balloon toss! I love the game....I usually win, well most of the time. Looks like everyone had a great time. Enjoy your week.

  2. What a fabulous idea. Looks like lots of fun a a great way to socialize with your neighbors! Our neighborhood was so quiet over the weekend that we thought maybe we were the only ones that didn't leave town! ha.
    And I can tell you're in WA with your sweater on...it was 90 degrees here yesterday! ha. I can't even stand to wear my hair down like Kim..just too sticky!

    Glad you had such a fun time. Looks like the kids had a ball!

  4. Yall must live in a really nice neighborhood! What a fun time! And those grands are precious!

  5. This looks WONDERFUL!! I love that your neighborhood has block parties still. I wish all of America was like that. Hope you had a wonderful 4th!

  6. That looks like good, old-fashioned fun!! What adorable little grandchildren you have!
    They look like they're having a great time and are dressed just for the occasion!
    I would love to have one of those chainsaw creations for my home. You wouldn't mind putting one in the mail for me, would you?
    Hope you have a blessed week!

  7. What great pictures and what a beautiful family you have.

  8. This was quite the block party! I picked up some fun ideas for my own grandchildren's visits. Those children in your neighborhood will never forget those moments. I like the bounce house.

  9. Christine,
    How fun, not only for the adults but the kids, esp the kid in all of us! It looks like someone put many hours of planning into this event! Treasure those memories!
