After we got home from Thomas, the boys jumped in the pool for a little bit and then played on the computer for a while. There was a knock on the door, it was a friend of the boys', Sam, bringing an invitation to a cookout at his house. His mom called while he was here to make sure the message came through ok and see if we could come. Chris wasn't home yet, so I told her that unless he had plans we would be there. He got home while Sam was still here, and said he'd come along, so we sent Sam home with the message that we'd be over after dinner. I made a quick pizza for dinner, and then off we went. They live just 2 blocks over, so we walked.

Their house is on a block that has a large grassy field in the middle of it, so the houses that are on the surrounding streets have this as their back yard. I showed Chris the shortcut to their house so that he could see how to get the boys to the field if he wanted to play ball with them.

We had a nice time cooking s'mores and meeting some more neighbors. I really like this neighborhood. Chris isn't so keen on all the people, but I feel so much more friendly with people to talk to. It is just too easy for me to hide inside my house and keep to myself when it takes so much energy and scheduling to get out to activities. It is nice to be able to walk down the street and wave hi to people.

Chris ended up leaving a bit early to take Levi home and put him to bed, and I stayed to let the older boys play a little longer. It was a lot of fun.
