This past weekend, our wonderful nanny, Maria, hosted an amazing street party for the kids on our street. I feel very lucky to live on this street: There are 19 kids on our street alone, and all the families are warm, loving and very family-oriented. As a result, since we all moved into this development four years ago, our kids have grown up together and formed incredible bonds that I’m sure will surpass their residence on this street.
Maria went all out for the kids – there was this unreal Sponge Bob pinata filled to the brim with candies, an amazing feast of treats from Maria’s home of Nicaragua – homemade chicken tacos, tortilla-beef casserole, a Latin take on shepherd’s pie, homemade orange-canteloupe juice and lime-ade. It was super-yummy.
We had 80’s tunes blaring the background, and everyone was enjoying the ambiance and beautiful weather. Saturday was a glorious, warm, sunny day, and I can’t think of a better way of saying farewell to summer in our ‘hood. Here are some pics!
