the baby shower

yesterday’s baby shower for my sister-in-law quited out with quite a bang. we family members were all inside waiting for guests to arrive when one of the women looking out the window saw oriona’s brother’s car rolling down the street. he had parked on the driveway, which is on an incline, and left his car in neutral with the parking brake on. the e-brake must have come loose, and it rolled down the driveway and across the street, running over three rocks in the neighbor’s garden and coming to rest on two of them. we were surprised it didn’t hit any of our cars parked on the side of the road. while the guests arrived, ryan, randy, joe, and oriona’s dad and uncle were out there trying to jack up the car so they could lift it. the car is more than likely totaled. the front end was bashed in, and the radiator was hanging down.

the rest of the shower went quite smoothly. there were a lot of girls there. i guess their significant others didn’t want to come to the couple’s shower. i felt bad for randy, joe and my dad though. and, only one person who came besides my parents, joe and randy played along with the theme, which was to wear your favorite sport’s team’s colors.

ryan and ori got some great gifts, most of which were outfits for their little boy.

and it was fun just getting to hang out with my family, whom i don’t see too often (although more than we see joe’s).

    I had the same thought as Laurel … maybe you’ll be having the next baby shower in your family! hehe 🙂 Those are great pictures. Glad you all had fun (when is she due?). Gosh ~ that’s a bummer about his car! Not good to leave it in neutral, haha 🙂 Are they pretty much prepared for their little one’s arrival?

    Cute theme idea! What are they naming the baby again? Isn’t it something random?

    That’s too bad about the turnout for the shower. Yeah, not a lot of guys like that kind of thing I’ve found out in the past. Cute idea for a theme though!

    Great photos! Looks like you guys had fun!
