Block party!

Yesterday, a neighborhood church had a back to school block party. This was the 2nd year for it and the turn out was HUGE! They gave bags filled with school supplies to all of the kids. Everyone recieved a raffle ticket. Richard and I won a $10 gift certificate for a local diner and a $20 gift card to Bob Evans! Chris and Jay won a dvd and a $5 gift certificate to Jimmy Johns! YAY!

There was tons of free food. Hot dogs & chips, cotton candy, nachos, snow cones, popcorn, ice cream cones and drinks!

Lots of games and fun stuff! We all had a wonderful, family time together!

We all met at the church-Richard and I, Heather and Justin & the 2 little ones(Kylah was shopping in Michigan City at the outlet mall)--Chris, Jay and Trae--and Cindy, Darcy and Carter.
