Showering a cyclone


Today we were blessed with a visit from Ms. Cyclone, who was in town for business and came up a little bit early so we could hang out. Ms. Cyclone is also part of the Year of the Baby, pregnant with a daughter. I miss having Ms. Cyclone up in Seattle and hanging out with her, so I wanted to do something fun for the few hours we had to hang out. I thought it would be fun to do something “baby showeresque” to celebrate her pregnancy, but still low-key and fun.

So, M & I kicked things off with a cooing, squealing trip to Target earlier in the week. (Apologies to the shoppers/workers at the Northgate Target for all of that ruckus… ) Then for our main event, we decided to have a picnic at Golden Gardens. The weather wasn’t as sunny and warm as it’s been all week, but it was still good picnic weather. The gang was in rare form:


And my camera still hates T:


But the food was awesome and plentiful, with homemade bread provided by T, some awesome mac & cheese from M&J, a bunch of other yummy things, including cupcakes for dessert.


And most importantly, creepy baby-themed toppers:


Ms. Cyclone seemed to have a good time and appreciated our take on the baby shower, sarcastic card included.


It’s hard to believe that the next time we see her, she’s going to be a mother. Crazy talk.
