Clean Out Your Kitchen Party

It was such a beautiful day on Monday! I came home from work and all the neighborhood kids were riding their bikes up and down the street and playing out in the front yards. One of the Moms on my block brought out a card table and a cooler and declared it "clean out your kitchen" night. So, all the Moms on the block went inside their kitchens and found something to bring to the party. We had chicken nuggets, cookies, artichoke & spinach dips, chips & salsa, KFC, Cheetos, Edamame, brownies, cheese and crackers. It was a smorgasbord of leftovers!

The kids had bike races up and down the street. The little kids who couldn't ride bikes rode Razor scooters or tricycles. Little Man went inside and got his pirate flag and whistle and he was the race starter. The kids had a wonderful time racing up and down and down and up the street. They played volleyball and jumped on the trampoline. When it got dark, someone busted out sparklers and they all had a wonderful time with those.

It was a great way to end a Monday!
