Saturday was the day of the shower. We spent the morning hanging around the house and procrastinating and eventually getting dressed. Family and friends started to show up around 1pm and it was time to mingle and catch up.

After everyone arrived we had something to eat from the lovely display of food. Make your own sandwiches, pasta, and fruit. mmm. Then it was time to play some games. First up: tasting baby food! Most of them weren't too bad, banana was my favorite, but the last one (thanks Sara) was awful! Baby girl will never, ever have to eat turkey and gravy baby food! yuck!

We also played the "how big is the belly?" game and a little trivia about Matt and I. The winners all got prizes and everyone seemed to enjoy it. Then it was time to open all the gifts! Everyone was so generous. We got some much needed items like the car seat & breast pump, as well as a ton of adorable little outfits for her.

Then it was time for cake! Sara spent all night on Friday baking a fabulous cake for the party. She is super talented and can create some amazing cakes! The cake was safari themed, which is how we plan to decorate baby girl's room. And the inside was almond and raspberry filling! Yum!
|The beautiful hostesses and us. love you!|
Sunday was our last day in town. Matt got up bright and early and went fishing with the boys. They ended up catching a couple of salmon, so we now have some fish in our freezer. Looks like I will be trying out that salmon recipe I mentioned last week! While Matt was off being a boy, I hung out with the girls. My Mom, Aunt and I went and got pedicures (heaven!), then enjoyed a nice lunch and did a little shopping. It was a nice relaxing end to our trip.
Thanks again family and friends! We love you all and hope to see you soon!
