A block party is a great way to spend a sunny day outside and get to know your neighbors. Set up the block party across front yards, backyards or in the middle of your street (check permit requirements). Gather the food, entertainment, and, of course, your neighbors for an easy party right outside your door.
While you are chasing your toddler around the grocery store or answering your preschooler’s question for the tenth time, an older mom watches you nostalgically and says to you in the checkout line, “I know you’re tired now, but it goes by so fast.” You may be so busy taking care of your preschooler that enjoying them may be a stretch some days. It only takes a few minutes to make a memory, though.
