Baby Shower!

12 Apr

Back when our trip was in the initial planning stages, when I realized that Rachel’s mom, mother-in-law (Ros), sister-in-law (Courtenay), and two of her three sisters would all be together with her in Australia during her first pregnancy, I decided that a surprise baby shower was definitely in order. I had grand plans but then time got away from me and before I knew it we were here, with no means of transportation other than Rachel, no phone, and fairly helpless in general. Thankfully Ros and Courtenay are beyond wonderful and put together a great shower with lots of family and friends. Rachel was fairly surprised, although she did suspect that something might be going on.

It really was a lovely time together celebrating Rachel and her new baby. We played games, including “The Price is Right:”

and baby food tasting:

Ruby helped Rachel open lots of beautiful gifts to choruses of “oh how precious/cute/sweet!”

Ruby practiced her piano-playing skills:

It is so wonderful to spend time with Elise and Rachel, but we all really missed Rebecca, Megan, and Jenna today.
