Robyn’s baby shower

We spent a wonderful day yesterday, celebrating Robyn’s baby shower at Elaine’s beautiful home.  I must say, Robyn’s pregnancy seems to have flown by .. and not long from now ‘Little Bean’  will present herself to the world 🙂  The morning overflowed into the afternoon and ended with a few of the girls in the pool and tea on the lawn .. fabulous

Ooops silly me .. I forgot to take out the toothpicks which were keeping giraffe stable during the ride from my house to Elaine’s as he had a tendency to lean on baby Ellie for support

Little Keelin having a little me-time 🙂  She was so sweet playing with Lily.  At one time she pulled Lily’s bed, with Lily on it, under the trestle table outside and there they sat together 🙂   Best place to be as it was shady and cool under there
