Baby Shower Gifts

Saturday I drove out to Ephrata for my cousin's baby shower. She's having a little girl (first for our family, yay!) which is super exciting. I whipped up a few little gifts for her and thought I'd share them. I've had many people tell me that I should open an Etsy shop with them, and maybe I will. Someday. For now, I'll just say that I'm open to doing custom orders if you have a shower coming up, or if you're having a baby and would like something. :-)
Almost everything (minus a basket full of stuff for the hospital)
I made a diaper bouquet (an idea from pinterest, but didn't have instructions so I guessed how myself), 4 burp cloths, 2 crochet headbands, 2 pacifier clips, 1 nursing cover clip, covered a wiper box, and a diaper pouch and stocked it, including a covered travel wipe case.

The pacifier clips, works great with either kind, the ones with a 'handle' or with the holes
Nursing cover clip- turns any blanket into a nursing cover, without having the bulk of having to pack something extra that takes up a bunch of room

 Burp cloths, including a contoured one

Covered wipe container- just to look nicer sitting on the changing table
Diaper pouch and covered wipe case - pouch held the wipe case, 4 size 1 diapers, diaper trash bags, and a tube of A&D

 I've also done monogrammed bibs and fabric headbands, which I don't have photos of on this computer.

So that's what I've been doing during nap times/bedtimes and I think Kev's happy to have our dining room table back. ;-)

Frisbee Fun with Friends

A few Sunday's ago (okay, it's been like a month) the couples from our small group headed down to Kennett after church to play some frisbee golf. We all packed a lunch and ate in the pavilion before hitting the course.

Dude, have you ever played before? I haven't. Not for real at least. It's hardcore. Serious. And some of our guys may have be a bit serious. Like bags full of disc serious. And the trees... those were crazy! They were every where! I may or may not have hit one or two (or ten). :-)

Susan stole my camera while we were hanging out in the pavilion, so the first few photos are curtsy of her. 
There's a reason I like to be the one behind the camera :-) 


 And his wife Dawn

Flirting it up with Becky

Logan had a ton of fun with Alayna...he got a ride...

He got chased....

He even got to throw the frisbee!!! (And it may or may not have gone farther than my throw)

Then he moved on to bigger things

Working his charm on Dawn

Goal!!!! (Errr...whatever it is)

After frisbee we headed into town for some homemade Mexican ice cream. Yum!!!
We all know that Logan enjoyed it ;-)

Logan loves to go to the park. I mean, come on, what kid doesn't?
Since I don't have a car, we spend most of our time at a park near our house that we can walk to. But occasionally we get the car for the day and can check out a new place.

Here's a hodgepodge of photos from all different times at all different parks. Most are from my little point and shoot camera, so sorry for some crappy photos. :-) Oh, and there are WAYYYY too many photos in the post, consider yourself warned :-)

P.S. Anthony is Logan's park buddy and those two are so fun together!

C'mon Logan let's get out of here

K, but follow me
Now you follow me!
