My Wonderful Neighborhood....

I have to say that I am glad that I am not moving. Yes, we need a bigger house. But I love my neighborhood!! You seriously don't find close neighborhoods like this. Last weekend when it was 80 degrees, my neighborhood got together and rented a aerator and a thatcher.

The cool thing was that we all worked together. With fun music blaring throughout the cul-de-sac. It was really neat. It wasn't every neighbor for himself. Everyone was helping each other. It was really neat to see.

Then after all the hard yard work was done, we had a neighborhood barbecue with steaks, Greg's famous ribs, salads, and root beer.

The kids had fun helping and running around playing. Here are some pictures that I got.



Mushy and Eric raking up our yard.



Blake doing his part!!




This was cool, while Eric and Mushy ran to the store real quick, my neighbor Robin was working on Mushy's front yard. He had it practically done by the time Mushy and Eric got back.

It is fun to have such great neighbors!!

Oh, who are the people in your neighborhood?
In your neighborhood?
In your neighborhoooood?
Say, who are the people in your neighborhood?
The people that you meet each day


Sorry that popped into my head when I read your post.

I wish our neighborhood was like that!

i'm telling you ~ nothing's better than a great neighborhood. It makes all the difference in life. BUT, if you moved to OUR neighborhood, you know we'd take care of you, too!!! :)

Can I come and live by you? That is the opposite of our neighborhood.

Thanks for the compliment about my daughters name Imogen, either people really like it or they hate it. There is a musician with the name but I can't really remember how we came up with it. It is from Ireland. I love reading your mom's blog and now yours too. Your boys are just darling!
