On Sunday it was time for Shower #2! For this shower we had close family, friends and Arek's relatives. We didn't invite extended family as there is only so much space and time!
It was HOT! We had the shower outside under umbrellas (of which there were not quite enough). The high for the day was supposed to be 80, but it was already 84 at noon. So it was mostly likely around 90 when the shower was over. But everyone seemed to have a good time and Becky got lots of things off her registry and tons of diapers! It was also nice to get to know some of Arek's family.
Becky is decorating for the baby with a forest friends theme so I found these cute little beehives which fit perfectly. Thanks to my friend, Sheri, for figuring out just how to use them.
As each guest arrived we had them fill out a wish for Baby Max on paper onesies. Then we hung them on a clothesline surrounding the party.
We had Becky take a picture with each of her guests for an album. I chose a few randomly to share here.
Here is Becky with her future mother-in-law.
And with her cousin Tori.
And with Natalie, a friend since first grade!
And here she is with Aunt Dar, her Godmother.
And with Arek's cousin Elizabeth and her two daughters.
And of course I have to sneak in a peak of her with Baby Avery.
We topped off the day with a really good cake decorated just like the invites with forest friends.
Looks like she is ready to go...
It was quick and fun weekend. I really miss seeing the older kids but it's only a few weeks until the wedding.
