The Answer's In The Frosting

We went to San Diego for a mini vacation and to spend some time visiting the growing family out there. There was a baby shower held for Megan and number three while we were visiting. It was called a "What's it going to 'bee' shower." Yes it was bee themed. Lots of black and yellow. Everyone at the shower, including Megan and Colton, didn't know the sex of the baby, except for a few people who made the delicious cupcakes we had that day. These people knew the sex of the baby and their mission was to put blue frosting in the middle of the cupcake if it was a boy and pink frosting if it was a girl. Thus, the main event at the shower was when we all circled up and watched the parents bite into their cupcakes to see if the frosting was pink or blue. It was a pretty cool idea and a blast to watch. And, when your churning out kids like this couple does, it was a good spin to put on another baby shower. Here are some pics from the weekend.

Nathan at the beach. Just shy of 16 months. Warning, this guy could probably beat up your 3-year-old.

Megan and Nathan at Carlsbad.

Kate and Brooklyn braving the still frigid Pacific.

I was trying to get a good shot of them kissing, but looks more like Meg kissing Nate and Nate smashing his face against her face. Other than this photo, Nate poses very well for pictures.

About to head down to the water once more.

Having lunch at Las Olas, one of our favorites in Carlsbad.

This is the moment, the moment M and C saw pink frosting. They are having another girl. Nearly everyone there either thought it was going to be a boy or they were pulling for a boy. Me, I thought it would be a boy. And yes, Megan is wearing bee wings.

Nate at the splash park. Water shoots up from the ground at random intervals. Kids entertained for hours. Parents rest in the shade. Fun for all.

More splash park fun.

Brooklyn running through the water.
