Bailey Block Party 2007

The 7th annual block party was last weekend, and it was a great night. The turn out was WAY better than anyone expected considering it was a holiday weekend and a little rainy during the day. But it cleared up just in time for the party! (We did cover the band equipment with a tarp just in case) My parents have been devoting their time and money to the front yard so that it will be nice for the block party every year. This year was no exception. The house and lawn are looking SO much better than it did when we first moved into the house. Congrats to them, its really coming along.
Matt took this picture with a "stitch assist" feature on my camera, but I haven't had a chance to link them together. But, this gives you an idea of how many people showed up. (there were ever more at night!)
The Dillons were able to make it out for the show, and it was fun to watch Aubrey and Laurel play the tambourine and maracas. They had a great time, and everyone loved them as an addition to the band.
I may make funny faces when I sing, but NO camera is fast enough for my amazing keyboard hands...especially during China Grove. :) The band sounded really great and everyone seemed to really enjoy the music. The last few years it has only been About Face that has played, so its been hard for me to enjoy the party because I am on stage all night. So this year I asked my dad to get another band to play half the time, and he brought with him "The Grand Delusion". (a Styx/Journey tribute band). They also played really well, and we all had a great time dancing and singing along to the music.Thanks to Matt for taking all the pictures for me. It was a really fun night, and I cant wait until next years!

Now I'm really home-sick! I loved those block parties when we lived there. The house and front yard look great (even in the dark!). Is the house still blue, it looks different?! Wish I'd been there! Rock on!

Looked like a bunch of fun. They don't do stuff like that around here, but who would with all the gnats, mosqitoes, heat and humidity. Glad you had fun. I'd love to have been there!
