We had a great block party today. It kicked off with our annual parade around the block. I decorated the kid’s bikes with balloons. Jafta was excited, but India refused to sit on her bedazzled trike, so she got a ride on Mark’s shoulders while cousin Tanner rode on her gig. Mark used his old youth ministry skills and let the kids in a game of water balloon toss. He got more in touch with his teenage roots when he and about seven other dads pelted each other with marshmallows well after the kids were bored of the game. The kids did GREAT during the fireworks. Yay! A good day.
