Cul-de-sac Party!

My neighbor Jen and I planned an "end of summer - back to school" get together with all the people who live in our cul-de-sac. Everyone in the cul-de-sac came with their kids (more than 18 kids were there!) and it was a great time! We had a bbq and lots of drinks - and an outdoor movie for the kids when it got dark! We had the movie in our yard ... and the parents stayed in Jen's yard! Jen.....I say we do that every Friday!! :) Smile!! The kids LOVED the outdoor movie - even my three who have the attention span of a - well let's just say a very short attention span - sat and watched the WHOLE thing! We had light sticks and popcorn......a great time was had by all! We brought the kids in after 10:00 and they were SO dirty from running around without their shoes on, rolling in the grass, etc. there was no possible way we could put them in bed without a bath. The were pretty wiped out by the time they hit the pillow (and so were we!!)!'s some pictures from our fun evening...I have to say there is nothing better than living in a cul-de-sac, and certainly we couldn't be luckier to live in one where there are SO many kids and great friends! It's so nice to see them running around from yard to yard...and not having to worry about where they are.

Um, Zach - did anyone tell you you're not old enough for a scooter thing yet? (And no helmet?) Jeez!
I love seeing Zach playing with his sisters ...

Doesn't she always have a juicebox in her hand???

Picking the flowers in Miss Jen's yard......I have to say that Jen and Kurt are teaching Brody and Seth good.....they will come over - flowers from this bush in hand and knock on the door and say these are for Addison, and these are for Avery! (HOW CUTE IS THAT!?!?!)
The Ballance Court Moms........some of them anyway. Jen's on camera duty .... And Sam's mixing up the flykillers......
While Kurt's manning the grill...
Here's some pictures of the kids getting ready for the movie....Sam brought home a projector and screen. It was great.
Ahhh, movie started. Look at them all sitting there - there was a whole other group behind this one (look at my three - all watching in the front row - INTENTLY!)

Well, have a great night. I was going to blog Notre Dame, but having some computer troubles, it's moving a bit...slow. I'm going to have to work on that another night. Thought I'd do this first. Watch out next for Zach's Teddy Bear Tea (his introduction to pre-school) and our trip to Chuck E. Cheemins from this evening.
