The first great-grandchild is on its way to the Pothier family. When I heard the exciting news I quickly claimed – if Kathryn, the mama-to-be, can make her way to Phoenix (they live in Wisconsin) I will throw her a family baby shower. (I’m always up for a fun party!) She loves us enough that she came for a visit!
This woman has to be one of the most talented pianists you’ll come across and it only seemed appropriate to throw a Grand Adventure baby shower with a delicious crepe bar.

I tried my hand at coffee filter garlands for the first time and I’m in love. Simple. Cheap. Big impact.
Baby boy already has a name – he is going to be a 5th generation Robert, or Bobby. Kathryn’s mother had a picture of her when she was just a little girl holding her little baby doll and on the back of the picture, dated “1990”, it read, “Singing to Baby Bobby”. Way back when, Kathryn had a baby Bobby in her arms and she’ll have one in her arms again shortly. We displayed the picture on the TV.
I’m not typically a shower game kind of person, but we had all the girl cousins there and I knew games would be fun for them so we played two little games. The first – we examined a tray of baby items and they tried memorizing everything on the tray.
The second game – we divided into two teams and we went back and forth singing songs with the word “baby” in it. Even the young girls contributed songs and it was fun to listen to the performances!
What’s hard is knowing she’s going to have that baby in Wisconsin and we’re all going to have to wait to hold him!
