What is summer without a block party? My beautiful neighbor, Kristin, made these darling invites and we distributed them to everyone in our valley plus some (75 mailboxes), and told them to bring their friends and family. I have my head in the sand as to how many people this could be, and I think that's a good approach. It beats heart attack mode, right?
For dinner, we are making a simple mint and pea pasta and serving it with a red and white Italian wine. I'm thinking that a large vat of minty pink lemonade would be fun for the kids. If I had a recipe, I'd share it, and I will let you know how it goes. I have gathered the mint and am now gathering my wits. I will clean a little, but after having a bevy of kids here all day, I'm not expecting any miracles.
Bikes, meeting lots of new folks, yummy Italian foods and wines, and just plain old fun. I am always a little disconcerted that we can live so close to so many people and hardly know who they are. This should remedy that! My kids are beside themselves...ready to ride and meet and greet!
How does your neighborhood bond?
I'd love to know!
