Blues at the Block Party!

Recently, we "babysat" Noli while mama's band performed during a neighborhood block party.



The globe and that cute table lend a bit of old world ambiance to the porch, and the crooked mail box...




Toy Gun performs

It was fun -- her neighborhood is in a historical area and the homes are mostly from the 30s and 40s. Some have been refurbished, some not. Some are very colorful! It is a neighborhood full of a mix of ages and professions -- and lots of artistic talent.



During the block party, this house was designated the "band" house, with all bands performing on the porch. Another house was the "port-o-potty" house (port-o-potty in the front yard, LOL). There was face painting and a bounce house for the kids, as well as chalk drawing on the street.



Of course, Noli's favorite was the bounce house...

Hello Sarah,

What a nice neighborhood! I like the idea of a band house, and of course, a potty is necessary. The bounce house is a bonus kiddie-pleaser. The fact that all contain BLUE is a happy thing.

Thanks for sharing.

Have a Happy Blue Monday!

Always loved the bouncy house as a kid too!

I adore homes built and designed in these years. Such pretty blues and the yellow.

My opinion? The lucky lady who got to babysit Noli had the most fun of them all! Right, grandma?

I bet Noli was very proud of Mommy! And she is right -- the bouncy house is the best place to hang out. Looks like fun!

How fun!
I do love old houses (even though I live in a fairly new one). Living in a neighborhood with a mix of people can be very interesting (mostly in a good way, hopefully).
It's great that Stephanie and her band performed for the neighbors!
