Looking forward to:  Gotta start the nursery and the baby shower     

       We really wanted to include our families in finding out the gender of the baby, so we decided to have a laid back BBQ and hit the pinata (in the previous post) to find out what we are having. If you haven't watched the video yet it is a must! 
       Unfortunately, this weekend was plagued with lots of rain so we moved all the tables inside and stayed there until it cleared up just enough to go outside and hit the pinata. We also set up a canopy in the backyard for Matt to grill the burgers, sausage, chicken, deer backstrap, and roasted corn...we had quite an assortment that I got almost no pictures of :(. I pre-made the potato salad, chocolate cake, and appetizers (with my moms help). My other special request for dessert (because cake wasn't enough) was root beer floats, so I am glad we made that happen...and I wonder why I gained 3 pounds this week! ;)

The tables and our voting board

       
       I don't think I have ever seen a gender party so one-sided in what they thought it was going to be. We made a voting chalk board for everyone to sign and after I saw all the people going boy, I voted girl for some healthy competition (even though after the ultrasound I had a strong feeling it was a boy)...and I am pretty sure a couple other people did the same thing. It seems our little man was sending out the boy vibe to everyone.

 Our guesses....then we switched just to be fair
 After Lee and Amy left, there were only 3 girl votes in the group

 We were way out-numbered by the boy voters
 Ready to do this!

 It's a BOY!
We cannot wait to meet you little man!
