Cruising for Some Ice Cream

Photo-A-Day #2300

Tonight was the night of the annual downtown block party. Today was also a day of a ton of running around. I’m pretty sure that I worked on the house with Dad and I moved a bunch of stuff as well but I can’t remember exactly what we did. This move has taken a lot out of everyone and if I don’t write everything down each night then I miss a lot. Unfortunately I’m not as clear on what we did during the day.

Tonight was the annual downtown Association Block Party and it was so much fun. Seeing people that you haven’t seen in years, meeting new friends and realizing that they are old friends. True social networking, getting out and actually meeting the people that live in your town. That was what the block party was for me.

I took a bunch of photos and will process them tomorrow and tell you all about what the block party was like. We got home at 9:00pm and well, I still have to make my lunch, pack for the gym and go test out an amazing flashlight that I’m reviewing soon. But I did want to say something about the photo above. This is a band that was set up to play directly across from the local elderly housing building called Madonna Manor. The wonderful thing is that many of the residents were brought outside to sit on the porch and watch people walking by admiring the classic cars and they also got a front row seat to watch these guys play. That attention to detail and inclusion of everyone is what makes the block party such a wonderful success.

I have many more pictures and stories to tell about the block party but I’m going to save them for a bonus post tomorrow.
