August 17, 2011

On Saturday afternoon we threw a baby shower for our dear friend Ruby! We gathered at the park and ate delicious food & had a cupcake decorating party! Linda, RJ, and I exchanged lots of emails planning and preparing, it was fun planning for Ruby's (supposedly) last baby #4! ;)

So this ^^ eventually turned into this:

We bought this frosting stand and spray painted it with chalkboard paint, then wrote the flavors right on the stand!

I seriously think I could just take pictures of Soul all day long. She is such a precious little baby! She is adorable eating a cupcake and she is adorable just standing in a basket we put her in ;) It seems like she just yesterday she was a baby!

Brave is such a sweet little one, she'll totally smile it up for the camera.

Time for clean up - this little cart was so handy. It's my newest most favorite piece from the sale on Saturday - I got it from Found. It's YELLOW! ;)

This last picture reminds me of a pathway to heaven or something, lol. This park is so pretty, one of my favorites!

Everyone else is really on top of it and already blogged about the shower if you want to see other recaps: Ruby's, RJ's, Helen's, Linda's, Jenny's, and Karen's!

and last but certainly not least, Jenny (Linda's little sis) put together an awesome video of the day! I love videos! I love the different element & aspect they bring to the table, something beyond photos. You can watch and re-watch and remember special moments.

side note: you guys can also see how long it really took to get that #4 sparkler lit (starts at 1:29) I really want a video camera now!
