Since then this neighborhood has had some great parties. We've had parties for all the holidays (Labor Day, Memorial Day, July 4th, Halloween), for birthdays (including a surprise party for my 40th), Thanksgiving dessert parties, New Year's blow out parties, Christmas Eve progressive lunch party, sending off to deployment parties and welcoming home from deployment parties, even typhoon and tsunami warning parties (gotta do something when you're on lock down). But sadly Saturday night was our last neighborhood party, the Coats' family farewell BBQ.
Our wonderful neighbors arranged this party in our honor and we were surprised and blessed by how many folks came out for it. Thank you neighbors for a good time, well, for many good times!
