On Sunday we attended a baby shower for our good friends Andrea and Brian. Nick and Andrea trained together in Washington, D.C. and have been inseparable ever since. Andrea and Brian are also immensely likable because they are fellow Minnesotans, having lived in St. Paul before joining the foreign service!
I had assembled a Baby Care Package for the family that included a MN Monthly Magazine, An Alvin and the Chipmunk’s CD (the singular most played record of my youth) and various baby clothes. Norma took over the assembly of the care package and when I tried to step in to help she told me that I was doing it wrong and would prefer to just finish it herself so it all looked the same. It swear that I used to be able to wrap gifts on my own before I had a Norma…. Perhaps I’m regressing?
Suffice to say, the party was a heck of a lot of fun. Made me want a baby – ALMOST. Maybe we’ll just borrow theirs for a few nights and test the waters. :) All the pics are on SMUGMUG. Otherwise, here are a few of my faves:
