Thinking about a block party October 15, 2010

Filed under: Uncategorized — jhintze @ 10:27 am

We moved to this house in June and we have met about three of our neighbors. Nobody has really gone out of their way to get to know us, but we haven’t really gone out of our way to get to know any of them either. I was thinking it might be fun to send out invites to every family in our horseshoe street and invite them over for burgers some evening. But that’s kind of a scary thing to do. Letting a bunch of complete strangers in your home is just not something that most people do on purpose. Anyway, I was just talking to Jackson about it to get his take on the idea. He said that he doesn’t like the idea of a bunch of 93 year olds all cuddled up in his bed. And as ridiculous and hilarious as that sounds, my fears of inviting psychopaths into my house who might secretly go through my panty drawer is probably equally ridiculous. So, maybe we’ll do it. It could be fun. And if a bunch of elderly people do fall asleep all cuddled up somewhere together I’ll be sure to take a picture.

  1. We did this when we moved in and it was the best decision! All of our neighbors are retirees so our little one didn’t get to make any new friends, but now he has a ton of Maryland grandparents!

    Open the gate and make it a backyard bash – BYO lawn chairs. Then they can’t go through your panty drawer 😉
