Pool Party

Yesterday we went to our neighborhood's end of summer pool party. We enjoyed good burgers, swimming and hanging out with friends. We love our neighborhood! We have many friends here in our neighborhood, many of which are members of the church. There are like 7 or 8 families in our ward that live in our neighborhood. And we don't have a huge neighborhood either, so its a nice close-knit feeling. We feel we are surrounded by so many wonderful people here!

I think this was the girl's first time to hit a pinata! I am usually anti-pinata, well, I am actually. I think they are dangerous and crazy, but I know, I know, fun for the kids. Some kid always gets whacked. Either that or the person holding the rope gets smacked or racked. Whacked, smacked, or racked. I'm rhyming quite nicely today. Only one person was whacked in the head. Thankfully the bat was plastic, so no major damage done. Ella was too shy to do it without me. I think I enjoyed beating that thing more than she did:)Addy and Ella enjoying their icecream sandwiches
Best Buds: Aubrey & Courtney We had a great time!

looks like a blast and i'm so glad you have such a great community! that's awesome. BUT. i have to take you to task on being a pinata hater!!! i'm such a pinata lover. it ain't a party 'til we're whacking the crap out of paper mache. and the smacking, whacking and (espcially) racking?! all part of the fun.

I love pool parties!! That one looks like so much fun. I miss the Dallas neighborhoods- they are so great for families. Can you believe summer is ending (well, probably not for you guys for 3 more months, nevermind then)??
