Memorial Weekend Party

This was our tenth anniversary of our Memorial Weekend Party with our Neighborhood. This gathering all came about because eleven years ago, our neighborhood had a lot of problems. But we came together and solved them and created this gathering to celebrate. This party is a reminder of just how precious our neighborhood is, and especially the diverse neighbors that make it what it is...

Here are a few pictures... sorry there are not more, but I was too busy eating good food (potlucks are amazing) and having conversations with people I just don't get to see enough of...

These pics were all taken early on... and the number of neighbors visiting our yard grew throughout the late afternoon into the early evening, as did the delicious entrees and deserts!!!

Our neighbors Char and Naomi left us with this beautiful garden ornament that Char made... the butterfly they said, was perfect symbol for what is happening in our yard and garden...
