On August 21st, we had our big baby shower! It turned out wonderfully! Much thanks goes out to my mom, who is an event coordinator/dj, and once her creative juices got flowing, she couldn't be stopped! She found this amazing venue in Olalla, WA called Storybook Cottages. It looked like a life sized smurf village on a beautiful property full of tons of cute, whimsical, storybook touches such as a wishing well and 'shrek island'- a life size, walk in tree house on a mini island! Since I'm a huge fantasy nerd, the venue suited my tastes perfectly. It was a little far (near gig harbor), but many of our friends and family members easily made the drive! Images with Imagination took photos...check out my mom's blog for a slideshow of all the awesome pictures at the Amore Events website. We played a few fun games. Not the traditional baby shower games, but a photo scavenger hunt, etc. Robert Stevens put on a hilarious magic show! All the while, Robin Hood (my mom's husband, Chad) served wine, beer, and a few tasty non-alcoholic drinks. It was classy yet fun, even for the boys who made it out! My mom provided my all-time favorite dessert, petit fours, while my friend Robin made Owl Pops! baby website if you would like to read what we were generously gifted with!
