Wedding Showers

March 15
Wedding party shower- Trail Blazing in Ryland

 Aside from the date and place, the activities of this coed shower were a complete surprise to the bride and groom.  Everyone gathered at the Schloss residence in Ryland, Kentucky (a beautiful plot of land, overlooking the Licking River).  Then all who came participated in making stepping stones for Kevin and I.  Friends and family had brought items to embed in cement stepping stones, and it was really cool!  I even got to make one!  (The stepping stones will remain at Ryland to be on display for the Rehearsal Dinner, which will be taking place there.  After that, they will be packed up and sent to Cloverdale for Kevin and I to arrange in our garden!- What a cool idea!)  As the stepping stones were drying, we embarked on the next adventure of the day- blazing a trail from the house to the river and back up.  Everyone on the hike had a job- from scouting (Kevin) to trail maintenance (Martha).  Kevin found some vines on the trail, causing us to pause for some entertainment watching some of the men scream like girls as they swung over the hill.  Another vine at the river made for more entertainment and a resting point before a few brave souls blazed the trail back up to the house.  Upon returning to the house, we were thrilled to find that dinner was served- chili, cornbread, and salad and there was a trail cake for dessert.  We opened a few gifts with an outdoor theme and wrapped up the evening!  What a day!  We have it all on video, thanks to Jason, and we have some still photos as well.  (We’ll work on getting those on the website eventually!)  Thanks to the Schloss’ for their hospitality, hard work, and cooking!  Thanks to Stacey, Joy, & Kelly for all the planning and implementing of the big day- we had a great time- it was our ideal party scenario!

May 18
Canaanville church family & family family shower

The afternoon began with introductions and the opportunity to share a story about Kevin- which he LOVED!  No, but everyone was very nice- they left the embarrassing stories and told very nice ones.  It was great for me to get to meet all of these people about whom I’ve heard so much!  We then opened gifts, which took nearly an hour (sorry for those who had to sit through it).  But we received some really nice gifts and we’re practically all set in our kitchen and dining rooms!  After gifts we had some nice hors d’oeuvres provided by some of the ladies from Canaanville and socialized a bit before packing up and heading back home.  Thanks to Bonnie and the other ladies of Canaanville for getting everything ready for us.  To Erin for helping to plan and for keeping a gift list for me.  And to Solanna for making bridesmaid bow-quets in between mommy duties.  It was a very nice day and we really enjoyed seeing everyone!

  June 7
Midway Baptist Church family & Logan/ Baldwin families

 This shower with my mom’s family and family friends in Midway, KY will wrap up the showers.  It will also keep me busy while Kevin is celebrating his Bachelor party.  I look forward to spending time with these ladies before things get too crazy!  Thanks to Auntie Shirley and Aunt Carolyn for all your planning and preparation.

Kevin and Martha plan to honeymoon on the beautiful Hawaiian island of Kauai. They will be doing it First Class all the way, from flights to accommodations to adventures. Okay, so they're more likely to "rough" the adventures. It should be a hoot.
