Party in the Hood.

My family has moved a fair amount in my life and one thing that we had always found are loving, caring, supportive neighbors. For the 13 years that we lived in San Antonio we had neighbors like none other. 

There were endless celebrations, trips to the ER, forts built, bottle of wine consumed, busses missed, tests studied for, cups of sugar borrowed and parties thrown.

I have watched our group evolve, grow up, move, go to college, come home from college, change, grow but one thing never really changes… we can THROW A PARTY.

Peggo and Martha (my mom) with all there kids! 

We are quite a crazy bunch! 

 Girls and our moms…

Over this past weekend we were very fortunate that we all got to be together for what is probably the last time for a while… we started calling our block parties "party in the hood" years ago… it just stuck.


this is my grandmother…. they are ridiculous. 

I am sure blessed to have all these crazy people in my life. I will always love the memories of our Parties in the Hood!
