neighborhood cookout

We have been scheming for a couple of months now with our neighbor about having a neighborhood cookout. Something where we could better get to know the people we near and start relationships beyond the occasional "Hi" as we are working in the yard. What better way to get to know people than over food? So last night we had our first official neighborhood cookout. We had a decent number of people show up and can only hope for it to grow the next time we do it. It's refreshing to really know who we live with, and I hope that we can keep those relationships going. We are always so busy living our lives outside of our house that many times we come home and stayed closed up all to ourselves in our own house. I feel like that is the way that many American neighborhoods are, but I hope that ours will change and grow for the better!
