Then we talked about playgroup for next week and it was decided that we'd have a water day at Randee's house. Even better. Another playgroup for me to sit on my butt. I told Joe that night that I think they were going to have my baby shower at Randee's (we've had them there before). Little did I know he was gloating.
Yesterday started normal. Got up, Joe and Ike went to swim lessons, and I had the house to myself. I did my Hypbirth and did a little stitching. Mom showed up, Joe and Ike got back, we loaded the van and left. We get to the park and as I'm asking what can I carry, Joe (in his grumpy bastard mode) tells me to just go and sit down. I roll my eyes and wander off to the park with Ike in tow.
I see the Moms sitting around, but no husbands. I'm thinking the men must be chasing their individual children. Yea for us! I get closer and I see someone who looks like Ron stuffing his face. I'm thinking that's odd. Then I see my friend Skeeve, and my grandparents, and the Huie's. A light clicks on. "What's going on?" "Surprise!"
My husband, mother, and friends all pulled off a surprise baby shower. How cool is that!
I know the party was planned at the last second and that many of you were invited and couldn't make it. You were greatly missed. It was a lovely day (fucking hot tho!). And you missed out on some amazing berry torte. =) I got some wonderful presents (I can't wait to play dress up with the girls!) and even Ike made out like a bandit. (He got 2 baby dolls, bottles for them, a sling to carry them around in, and the best present? His own set of maracas. You should of seen his face light up when he saw those!) It was a wonderful party and I think I have the most amazing hubby in the world!
