imprompTuesday - Baby Shower/Gendar Reveal Party

We had a wonderful time this past Saturday at our Baby Shower/Gender Reveal party. It was coordinated by my lovely Sister Sarah and my Sister-in-Law Jenni helped with the preparations.

They did an awesome job coming up with games and food AND my sister even made the cake!!! Yeah, she pretty much rocks. :-D

Our theme was, "What will it bee?" and they had all the items that matched the yellow and gray theme. Lot's of fun!

Check out some pictures from the shower and what Baby Perkins 2.0 is going to be inside:
