it's a baby shower! ~ Libby
A second baby shower in June, this one for my husband's cousin and his wife Libby! Such an adorable couple, now going to have a baby girl in September. We are so excited for them!
It was a great shower, filled with so many family and friends who clearly adore these two. Everything was so detailed and sweet, too. Libby's sister did a fantastic job organizing the shower. The cake was the same type of cake they served at their wedding last July - vanilla cake with strawberries, delicious!
The picture below shows one of the "activities" (no games, instructed Libby!). They put small baby items into individual gift bags, with one letter on each bag that spelled out Baby Butler (their last name). All guests had to guess what was in each bag, for example B was for bibs. Very cute idea, I'd never seen before at a shower.
To Libby, Lloyd and future Baby Butler, we are so happy your family is about to become 3. Owen can't wait to have another little cousin around to play with. We hope you enjoyed your special day, and enjoy taking that little one out for walks and jogs in the stroller we all got you.
On to September! Good luck in the heat this summer, Libby. I imagine Lloyd will be treating you to many ice cream dinner dates in July and August! Indulge!
