is exactly what we were on Saturday night. As I made my way (yes I was alone at this point) through the front door of our "small group cookout" I was pleasantly surprised! Our sweet friends in our small group had planned a baby shower for us. It was truly a blessing to spend some good time together outside of small group on Thursday night and right along with that, get to celebrate the coming of Tucker.

Matthew and I are so thankful for each one that we get to grow closer to in our small group setting. It has been such a wonderful thing for us as a couple. We really have never done anything together in a small group setting because we are typically separated leading different youth small groups, bible studies, etc. It has been much needed adult interaction with other couples our age, which we have always lacked in our marriage. We have been able to enjoy and share in conversation with this group in deeper ways about living to the standard the Bible sets for us as believers. Matthew and I could not ask for anything better in a relationship with others!

We did still have our cookout and the food was delicious as always. It was a perfect evening to spend outside eating, chatting, boccee-ing, and watching all the kids play together. Greg and Ashley were gracious to host us. Greg is such a wonderful photographer so I am putting up some really great pictures he took during the evening.

  1. where was I in that picture? behind it, silly.

  2. yeah i realized that after i posted. sheesh!

  3. Meghan,
    The shower looks like it was fun and I especially loved seeing the little sailboat details - what cute accents for Tucker's nursery. :)
    Thanks so much for the help with finding the source for the sailboat artwork! I ended up using it as a template to create some pictures with scrap booking paper I already had on hand (just because we don't know if we are having a boy or girl yet).

    Yours are much cuter, but I do like the way they turned out! I've taken pictures and will try and post them on the blog soon.
    Hope you continue to feel well these next few weeks . Not long now...I'll be thinking about you guys and praying for a healthy baby and mama! :)
