Neighborhood Block Party...

I am FINALLY getting around to posting pictures of our neighborhood block party we had last Tuesday night. We have such great neighbors & it was a blast. It was so much fun!!! We had so much good food & great company! Our neighbor Carolyn had all the food set up in her driveway, we had the whole street barricaded off so that no one could drive down our street & all the kids went wild in the street. We had bikes, scooters & water guns. They all had a BLAST!! Then about 8:30-9 p.m. a fire truck, ambulance & a motorcycle police officer all came. Each of the kids got to go in the fire truck & try on the oxygen masks (Kelsey was too scared to even sit in the truck but she did climb in...ONLY if daddy was right next to her..funny girl.) that they wear & the firefighters gave each kid a fire hat & coloring book. They also all were able to take a tour of the ambulance & the police officer let all the kids sit on the motorcycle. My girls loved the reminded them of papa LaMar's motorcycle in Arizona. (Sadie was alseep by this point..she was running up & down the street just CRAZY & out of her skull tired....sad that she missed the fun tours though she would have gotten a kick out of all the lights!!)
This is our neighbors little girl & my girls just ADORE her. They are moving to Tuscan & we will really miss them!!

Kelsey being scared of the big fire truck...But Daddy was there to tell her she's fine.
Lindsey & the Oxygen mask...She isn't afraid of ANYTHING!!!!
Look at how SOAKED she is...they got in a water gun fight rght before this. It was a VERY humid & hot night.

We are truely blessed to have such great neighbors & friends here in Nebraska. The midwest is different the the west coast. They just do more family stuff & I LOVE it!!!

Lindsey looks all wet in these pictures, was it really hot and humid or did she get squirted by the fire hose?
