Last Saturday, we were pleasantly surprised with a baby shower by family and friends! Bethany arrived in Boston at 5:00am off a red-eye flight from California, and then a little later in the day, the three of us drove down to Middleboro. When we arrived, the house was packed full of loved ones. It was a wonderful day!

Bethany was in charge of the games for the day, and did a great job preparing for and presenting them to all the guests. We played the clothespin game, the "left-right" game, the baby scramble and the memory game - everyone had lots of fun.

We were overwhelmed with all of the wonderful gifts we received. We can't imagine anything else that we will need - once all these gifts are organized and put away (another story for another post!) we will be pretty much ready to welcome our little baby.

Our baby received so many amazing gifts! Here are a few:

Of course, the baby's first Red Sox cap!:

Lots of adorable ducky themed items to go with our nursery:

Lots of baby gear, such as this "Jumparoo" - It looks like fun!:

We are so thankful to Mom, Bethany and Chris as well as all of our friends and family who came to help prepare for the shower and celebrate with us!

We already love this baby so much and we are so grateful to be surrounded by so many family members and friends who are so excited to welcome the little one:

It won't be long now!

Many thanks to Stephanie and Aunt Ricky for taking lots of great photos (and also for traveling up from Florida for the shower!). You can check out the rest of the album here. Enjoy!
