We got invited to a Bee themed baby shower last weekend!
It was in the neighbourhood (the parents of one of Don's high school friends lives a few blocks away, and they were hosting), so we walked.
Saddled up my own babies.
And off we went.
It was an adorable party.
Dexter kept trying to get other peoples' parents to blow up his balloon, not realizing that it's gross to hand over a balloon that is covered with your saliva.
Honey, in keeping with the bee theme.
Coordinated drinks, though I was typical and enjoyed bubbles the whole time.
Everybody was amazed that Tish was holding baby Alice. Little do they know that I usually pawn my babies off to be held by others whenever I can. They're heavy!
Maybe I am devoid of certain hormones, but I don't ever feel the need to shadow my kids everywhere when I am out in public. If I go to a party, I want to visit and enjoy the company. Lots of people like holding the baby and they are instructed to just give her back or put her in the stroller when they feel done with it all.
The house had a beautiful garden so Dexter spent most of his time eating candy and repeatedly throwing balloons into the pond and then retrieving them. Works for me! Baby Alice enjoyed lots of snuggles with strangers, and then I put her on the grass when she got tired.
The walk home only took 5 minutes.
