showering the bride

Mae and I had a fabulous weekend getaway to celebrate Colleen’s bridal shower! Mae was a little nervous before our flight on Friday afternoon, but it went smoothly and she enjoyed watching “Is It Cake?” and “Octonauts” on the flight. It was our first time flying since before COVID! Mae recently switched to a high-back booster in the car and it was infinitely easier to transport through the airport than her old car seat.
When we arrived, Mae got right down to business playing with Batman’s Little People toys. That evening we had pizza with GranE, Batman, Colleen, and Bobby. Saturday we enjoyed delicious pastries from a new local bakery before heading to a nearby zoo.
The weather was absolutely perfect. We enjoyed a slow-paced stroll through the zoo. I think my favorite part was watching the otters. Mae’s favorite part was the ice cream.
Sunday was the bridal shower. Mae kept Colleen company in the morning during her hair/makeup trial while GranE and I helped the bridesmaids set up for the party. The shower was fun, the food was delicious, and the blue skies stuck around right up til the last guests left! We enjoyed the emoji Pictionary game and playing with the photo props!
We had a smooth flight back and arrived home around 10pm. We were tired the next day, but it was worth it for such a fun Mommy-and-Mae weekend!
