Castillo Baby Shower

Last weekend, Lyndsay headed up a baby shower on campus. It was awesome! At first, I was hesitant to receive all the attention but she made is so fun to welcome our little girl as "princess" of the Castillo (FYI: Castillo means castle and it's the nickname the neighbors have given the main building on campus). I felt so spoiled and blessed to be surrounded by such caring friends and family.

My sister, Melissa, came down from Riverside. As you can see, she loves to poke at the baby.

The reason I was so excited about this little "jogging suite" is that Ryan jogs with the husband of the lady who gave it to us. I couldn't help but think of our baby joining him and Chuy for exercise at the local park one day. 
The girls did such a great job with the food. Needles to say, the chocolate fountain was a hit with both Mexicans and Americans. The girls also made crepes, which were quite popular, too. 

Heidi's sister, Heather, made this cake of diapers. I don't really want to take it apart. :)

I don't know if this is done in the States as well but here it's a common game. You pull off as much toilet paper as you think would fit around the pregnant lady and the person who guesses the closest wins. Ryan overshot it a bit!
