This weekend we went to our first neighborhood function (in 5 yrs). We were invited to a clam bake by our neighbors at the end of our street. They have two boys (8 & 6) that play with our boys all the time. Normally I shy away from these types of events and this was no exception. D dragged me to it and made me dress like a non-bum. It turned out to be pretty good. The neighbors are all pretty easy going and there was only a couple minutes of uncomfortable political (local township) discussion. We stayed there for 4-5 hours which was longer than I expected. The kids played with all the other neighborhood kids – basketball, football, baseball, karaoke, etc.
We’ll see if we ever get invited back 😉
