As we planned our road trip, one of the events I was looking forward to most was the baby shower for my newest grandchild, Corban - he is due to make his arrival in early May. My daughter, Jaime, the
new mommy guest of honor happens to have a couple of uber-talented friends named Summer and Valerie, who couldn't wait to plan a shower. And I happen to have a very generous and talented friend named Brigitte with a beautiful home, so when the guest list grew and the girls got nervous about space, I asked my friend if she would be willing to open up her home to a bunch of strangers and she answered with an enthusiastic *YES!*
The emails started flying back and forth between the four of us, a theme was decided upon, tasks were divided up, lists were made, and a date was set. The following pictures were taken by the only boy allowed in, Summer's cute husband Matt who happens to be a gifted photogragher - I think he captured the day perfectly.

Jaime's daddy made her these little birds for her *woodsy* themed nursury - I think she loved them - what do you think?

Matt and Summer took Jaime, Jacob (the new daddy) and Murphy (their sweet pup) out one day for a little photo shoot - they then created a beautiful photo book to be signed at the shower by every guest - it was passed around throughout the party and filled with lovely advice, wisdom, and sweet sentiments for this new journey the Lewis family is embarking on....
