On a perfect June Day, a shower without rain......

could only be a Baby shower!
A happy occasion.... a "surprise"......


A room full of friends and relations, and many many gifts from well-wishers.






The weather was beautiful, the momma-to-be, glowing with
anticipation, happy to greet everyone.




Later...waiting to begin opening gifts...







So many gifts......





And afterwards, there was cake… And a happy Gramma-to be and new Mom-to-be….


Soon-to-be "aunt" Kim…



And sweet baby visitors…twin boys,with their momma and good friend.


Another equally excited new grandma on the occasion of meeting her firstborn grandson






And later…back at the Farm…

A porch to sit on.....perfect for relaxing...



A cell phone dropped in the pond. Oops!


Luckily - it was retrieved and amazingly...still works!


Later..there were more celebrations...birthdays, dogs....a barbeque.....more visiting..til way past dark... (but no more pictures)....



It was a perfect ending to a perfect day.






And very soon there will be one more new little member of the clan....

Stay tuned!

How wonderful! Reminds me of the shower I had for my daughter 3 weeks ago. The shower was on Sunday and she went into labor an hour after the shower was over and had our beautiful baby granson on Monday!
All the best to you all! A happy post!

Hi again Dorothy, it is always so nice to have you visit and I always check your blog, looking forward to your next post. Glad you liked the tin, it is acrylic not watercolor just so you know. How about you, been doing any painting lately??
