A Shower for Goby

My lovely friend Karen is about to be a mommy. In honor to celebrate this event, a few of our friends threw a shower for her and daddy-to-be Benjamin. Julia, aka Party Planner Extraordinaire, took care of the lion's share of the duties, while the rest of us brought a couple things and put up some banners. ; ) We were still kind of in the middle of setting up when the guests started arriving, but no one seemed to mind. I had the foresight to bring my camera, and Donovan allowed me a few moments of freedom to actually use it a bit.

Carolyn made these cupcakes. Aren't they THE CUTEST THING YOU'VE EVER SEEN?

It was a HOT weekend-- it got up to the 90's on Saturday. So we turned on the sprinklers and let the kiddoes cool off. Some of the adults ended running through a couple times, too.

One of the games was a replay race among the men-- they had to run with the stroller to a table set up with diapers, change the doll's diaper, then race back and chug a couple ounces of lemonade from a bottle... with newborn nipples on them. (Zach was in the game and D started getting clingy right about here, so I can't take credit for the relay pictures)

Apparently they were having trouble with the nipples...

And of course, what would a shower be without the gifts. =)

  5. Marcy,
    The relay race sounds like a lot fun! I might have to steal that idea for my friend's shower. Donovan is looking so cute and growing so much. It's lovely to see him change and grow. Hope all is well!
