Our homeowners association had its annual neighborhood picnic Saturday evening.
We moved into our new house almost exactly a year ago. Since then we've put on a new roof, new siding, painted lots of rooms, changed out some electrical outlets and done tons of work on the previously un-maintained landscape.
We've visited extensively with our next-door neighbors and met the family up the street with a girl the same age as our daughter.
But we hadn't met many of the other people in the neighborhood until Saturday, so it was nice to get out and mingle.
The highlight of the day of course was having the OP fire department bring a truck down for the kids to check out. Then the hooked up to a fire hydrant and turned the hose on for a few minutes.
The kids loved it.
