On Saturday, my Aunt Linda hosted a couple's baby shower in Olympia, Washington for all our friends and family in that area. We weren't sure who would be coming, but it turned out to be quite a mixed crowd. There were about 40 people there from so many different parts of our lives -- relatives from both my mom and dad's sides of the family, friends from both mine and Darren's high schools, old time family friends, church friends, etc. We had a wonderful time!
On Sunday, we headed south for another shower in Newberg, Oregon at Virginia's house (Darren's mom) -- lots of family, fun and fellowship. We were so blessed by all the wonderful gifts for our baby. Darren's grandmother gave us a baby spoon that has been used in their for three plus generations. She also knitted a beautiful baby afghan for our new little boy. It was so special.
It was an exhausting weekend, but such a celebration. Check out the pictures in our photo album.
