Bethany's Sweet Pea

Last weekend we went to Florida to attend a shower for Bethany and Baby Barnett. The shower was held at the home of Bethany's good friend Wendy.
Unfortunately, it was so hot that the balloons outside kept popping. Which sounded like gunshots.
A picture of Bethany with all the hostesses. Okay, so Wendy did most of the work, but we helped brainstorm! I thought it was particularly kind of her to paint her dining room to match the sweet-pea pink-and-green theme.
The fabulous spread.
Do you think the cake decorator thought we wouldn't notice that the "s" in Showers was in a different color?
My contributions were as follows: To the decor, I contributed the all-important Diaper Cake. And as a part of her gift, I made Baby Barnett some baby blankets out of the same lightweight material that Rock loved.
Jessie is a trivia master. She put together one awesome trivia game full of general baby knowledge, Gator football facts, celebrity baby names (Susanna ROCKED this section), and Full House (yes, the TV show) questions. Bethany's team won, but I guess that's to be expected.
Rock enjoyed the trivia game because it meant that there were PLENTY of reach-extenders (aka pens) for him to play with.
Bethany, Baby Barnett, and her grandmothers.
And of course, the sister shot. Instead of birth order, we went with a black-red-black-red line-up.

Good shots, I'll have to steal some off your site.
