Baby Showers!

What a whirlwind weekend! We spent two days in the Northwest over Labor Day weekend. It was our final trip to see friends and family before the baby is born.

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.
