Point + Shoot : Crab Cook Up

I seriously love where we live - and who we live alongside.

You never know what will eventuate in our street and we're never short of a reason to celebrate.

A neighbour's impending birthday was our impromptu excuse reason this weekend.

A couple of casual beverages and a bag of chips shared on our lawn 
somehow morphed into a feast of fresh crabs and champagne.

One of the neighbours happened to be 'gifted' a haul of 'today's crabs' on his travels
and proudly presented them to the gang gathering out the front.
In no time at all, my handy Hubby had the camp stove out,
cooking instructions googled and a little seafood treat on the go.
Party hats and toasts were called for - and the kids ran amuk.

Couldn't have planned it better if we had actually planned it, really!

Haha! How fantastic Shar, what a great neighbourhood. Beautiful pics and I love how the obligatory 'superheros' were out in force... an absolute must at any impromptu (or planned) soiree ;) xo

Wow! That's so cool!

I wish we had cool neighbours like that. Ours are a little bit weird.

I miss sitting on the driveway and having a few beers with the neighbours while the kids play.
