That's Not Rain - It's a Shower

Whoooosh!! And then summer hit!

We had such an amazing time with our family in Nisswa. Mom and Dad Sylva put us up in a cabin for the week. And by cabin, I don't mean a little room with four walls and a screen door. Nope - not this place. Enough bedrooms for each family, kitchen with plenty of amenities, a couple of living spaces, deck, screen porch, WiFi, pool table and access to a pool and hot tub! Yep, it was a great week!

Upon our return, with our golden-bronze skin, (well, Chip is more like mocha!) we were treated to a beautiful baby shower by some very dear, amazing, gracious friends family. The theme was Little Man and everything about the patio was set up as such! Table linens, lanterns in the trees, cloth napkins -- the whole nine yards. We were extremely honored to be the reason for the last patio party at their MN home.

Always there

Get it? Bow ties!! Isn't that adorable?

The patio was filled with friends and family who ate, drank and partook in a few party games. We couldn't have asked for a better evening.

Bobbing for nipples...heehee

These two were better at it

And when it was time to open gifts, our friends' generosity and creativity stole the show. I'm continually blown away by the people we've surrounded ourselves with in this world. They're selfless, caring and real -- and (as silly as it sounds) it shows in the way they gifted #BabySylva 

At the end of the day (and the end of this blog post) and find myself filled with excitement, thankfulness and maybe some sheer luck. Without a little happenstance in this world, I don't know how we could have stumbled into the lives of such great people.
