I felt a little guilty that I was getting another shower so soon after having my first baby especially when the second one is a boy too! But Mom seemed to really want to throw one and I have to admit I thought it would be fun to have a "celebration" for Joey whether I got a lot of stuff or not.
I was so exited to find out that my good friend Jill was planning to come to the shower too. I was thankful to not be itching miserably this time but I still didn't feel great so the hospitality was lacking somewhat...ehh, who am I kidding? Thats just a handy excuse! ;-) We all really enjoyed her visit though.
It turned out to be a really beautiful day for an outdoors shower. The guys were invited to this one too and it was just really laid back and a fun get together with delicious food, a couple of fun games and LOTS of presents. I was really surprised...I wasn't expecting so much!
I did my best to take pictures but I don't think I did it all justice.

And this has nothing to do with the baby shower except that when I was putting everything away I stopped to compare Joey's diaper with Jimmy's. What a difference!
