Jack and Jill Shower

Oh, lucky day! Following our day of jam making we were lucky enough to be the guests of honor at our jack and jill shower! The shower was hosted by my aunt mary at her camp on little narrows lake. Despite a cloudy start to the day, the weather turned around and the sun started shining just in time for the festivities to begin.

We were surprised and excited to find this pretty little cake had been made especially for us. Not only was it beautiful (note the love birds detail) but it was tasty.

Everybody bought something special to the table. Some of our favorites were the BBQ chicken, the peanut butter cup cookies, and a delicious cold broccoli salad.

We both had mixed feelings about registering for gifts but in the end we did register for camping items and some kitchen ware at Target (my favorite store). We got some great gifts and can't wait to hit the woods and start camping! Here we are opening gifts. You'll have to overlook my crazy expression. I get nervous in front of the camera and I always end up making crazy faces. It drives jesse nuts because we never have good pictures of the two of us.

And finally, a shot of us showing off our fancy pants cake. Of course, there were three people taking pictures all at once so I don't have a good shot of us both looking at our camera. That always happens when my family gets together.

Finally, a big thank you to everyone who turned out to celebrate with us. It was a fantastic day!!
