Scenes From a Weekend // baby shower

Sunday was my sister's shower at my mom's house. A small celebration to welcome her second baby, a boy who's yet to be named, and due in September. Unfortunately I failed to properly charge my camera beforehand so it died just after setting up. The only pictures I have are pre party, meaning I missed all the adorable little girls spinning around in their party dresses and the hand knit baby clothes made by grandmas and great grandmas. It was a great gathering, minus any kind of baby games, in which we were able to fully enjoy the company and sit and talk rather than follow any specific agenda. I'm not a big fan of games in general. So it was a relief to me.

Next, party planning turns to Leon's big 4th birthday party blow out next month. It is all he's been talking about for the past 9 months, inviting everyone he comes in contact with to it, so it will be a big deal. Just like he's hoped. And then it's the holidays, and more birthdays. It doesn't stop. I suppose I should just come to accept that with as big as our (and our extended families) are.

That's ok. Parties are fun.
