Nautical Baby Shower

Being in the military is tough when you live away from family. Half our family lives on the East Coast and the other half lives on the West Coast. I am lucky enough to have two great families that each threw me a baby shower on opposite sides of the country. My mom threw me one in Florida in October with a Nautical Theme. She did an amazing job with the help of my sister and grandma. Check it out!

Ahoy It's a Boy!

We had some delicious food all with a nautical theme. We had everything from crab-wiches to dips and egg boats. The cake was even in the shape of an anchor.

Everyone signed "The Rainbow Fish" with a special message to the baby. We played games like guess how many Sweedish Fish and don't say the word "baby". If you said "baby" and someone heard, they could take your lifesaver necklace.

We played other games such as match up the baby word to the candy bar. An example is "baby poop" matched up with "raisinets". How many do you know?

The other game we played was the story game where every time you hear "left" or "right", you must pass that direction. My grandma came up with the story about Lloyd and I! At the end of the story, everyone had the chance to open their gift and and turns out it was all baby items that I got to keep. My dad couldn't quite fit in his onsie!

My husband even got to skype in for a few minutes and say hi to everyone.

The shower was beautiful and I was so happy to see everyone in Florida. Being stationed across the country, I don't get the chance to see my East Coast family and friends very often.

Be sure to check out on Thursday my West Coast baby shower my mother-in-law threw for me!
