Block Party Fun Fun

This year we decided to try something new.

With fellow neighbours we organized the first block party

our neighbourhood has ever had.

Amazingly we had about 200 people come, dance,
play games, make art and climb on a firetruck.

t was pretty amazing to meet so many new faces.
We had a camp sing a long, smores, a scavenger hunt.
And more.

We threw the invite wide and folks came climbing out 
of the woodwork. 

And with the block party behind us,
I can't believe summer is over.

I feel like we were just getting the hang of things. 

School starts next week.

I think that means less ice cream.

No one likes less ice cream.

Merry Happy Rockin' Summer

Hi All!

We've been on a bit of a summer adventure.

We're still making things

In fact, quite a lot of things...

for our upcoming block party.

We're making silly games like 
tic tack toe frisbee

Lot's of sustainable signage

And fun prizes that can be used year after year.

Even Giant Jenga!!

Which may have started as a fun kids
project for the block party...

But I'm not going to lie:
I think it's going to be a fun grown up
drinking game too!

There has also been the usual:
Swimming, popsicles, trips, fun.

Our boulevard garden continues to delight us.

And the local butterflies seem to agree 

I'm headed back to the pom pom sweatshop

Hope to see you there.
