We are Family


We Are Family

Well, not really, but sometimes our little cul-de-sac of 5 houses feels that way. Remember the Saint Roman Snow Team? Well, this is the summer version. I call this bunch the Saint Roman BBQ Team & we all gathered for a Memorial Day cookout in The Scribe Family's driveway.

We've got all kinds of folks on this squad, which specializes in ribs, briskets, brats, dogs & oodles of sides. From the Russian grandparents to 15-month-old Jackie, we've gone from the 12-foot snow drifts of February to the 90-degree humidity of May & June.

I think we might have set some kind of neighborhood record for this particular gathering. Mrs. Scribe, in case you want to know, is in the back row, 5th from the left.

BTW, my first time over at Shoot Me, a Thursday gathering introduced by my chica, MOO. A good excuse to hog the limelight, correctamundo?

It's amazing how little places like that can become almost like family.

I've lived in my set of four flats for over 5 years now. Over that time two of the lots of neighbours haven't changed. The last one changes quite regularly, and we usually don't like whoever's there.

It's like they're trying to move in on our little territory or something.

Anyway, what we have is nothing compared to what you have there.

I lived on a cul-de-sac with that kind of closeness once and it was really great. We have good neighbors now, but nothing like that. How fun that you got that picture.

What a great neighborhood you live in! It is so nice when neighbors socialize.

That looks like a good time! I wish we had some more fun close neighbors. A lot of the houses are kind of far apart out here in the country!

Aw, sweet! We have wonderful neighbors, but now that everyone is running with their kids we don't see each other much anymore, and have let most of our usual gatherings slide. Makes me want to organize one!

I wish my neighborhood was tighter:-)

I've always wanted to live on a cul-de-sac where everyone knew each other and threw big summer bbqs.

How fun and what great memories you are creating! My family used to live on a street like that but then we moved away and our street is not very fun at all!! Great 'family' photo! Blogged over from Carin's.

This looks like you guys are having so much fun ! Yum, BBQ w/ Brats. You gotta admire a cul-de-sac that snow blows and BBQs together. What's next ? A cul-de-sac cookbook? :)
