A Seussville Shower

On April 25, a group of our close friends through us a baby shower to welcome Dylan.

Adorable invitations by Claire
It was an absolutely perfect day, all set in the theme of Dr. Seuss. Dylan's nursery is decorated in Dr. Seuss, so it was so fitting that we celebrate Seuss style. Our friends did such an amazing job, and it was everything we dreamed of. Our closest friends from Southern California, Margaret and Adrian came up for the day and that meant the world to us!

Jonathan and I kept pinching ourselves to make sure it was really happening.
A baby shower for our son!

As most anyone knows, California is in an awful drought, and we haven't had a good rain in months. But, wouldn't you know rained all the night before and the morning of the shower. The shower was held in our friend, Lorilei's backyard. Luckily, the clouds parted, the sun shined, and the day could not have been more spectacular. 

Our adorable cat in the hat was an angel! He was passed from person, to person, and barely fussed (unless he was hungry or needed changed.) He even donned a cat in hat out outfit for the occasion.

We cannot thank our friends enough for ALL their planning, coordinating, and assembly of our baby shower. It's a day that will remain in our memory forever and it wouldn't have been possible without them! You gals are the best and we love you!

Some photos so you can enjoy our day too...
