The Shower

This past weekend our friends were kind enough to throw us a Baby Celebration. This was very similar to a Baby Shower, but didn’t have any silly games and was actually a lot of fun. It was really great to get all of our friends together for a party. It’s been far too long.

People gave us all sorts of wonderful gifts, a dragon’s hoard of toys for Tony, Son of Tony. A train set, building block, leggos, and plastic keychain shaped nylabones were among the favorites. There were also more practical gifts, which Tony, Son of Tony may not appreciate, but that Tony, Father of Tony, Son of Tony will defintely use.

Of course, then there were the other presents like the bottle of wine for Son of Tony’s 21st birthday and God of War. The wine I’ll be sure to keep stored for 21 years, but I don’t think God of War can wait until he’s old enough to play it. Maybe I’ll write more about that one once I’ve had some time to clock some real video game hours against it. Preliminary experiments indicate high levels of both violence and fun, so I’m looking forward to the Video Game Weekend coming up.

We got to play Kube. I don’t know if I spelled that correctly. It’s a Swedish lawn game. It involves throwing sticks to knock down wooden blocks. It really is a lot of fun. My team lost, but we put up a pretty good fight.

Thanks to Mike and Kim for throwing the party. I hope that Carol and I can return the favor sometime soon. Next year maybe? Eh?

Yeah, so I took a few pictures. I didn’t really get a shot of the whole crowd, but trust me, there were a lot of people there.
