Not content with merely earthquakes and swamp fires, Mother Nature has sent a hurricane to the William and Mary campus, so we had to evacuate. Fortunately, this means I can post the photos that my dad took at my brother's baby shower. It was a picnic at a park near their house - the perfect occasion to wear a 1940's summer dress! I missed the fact that it was a barbeque (one of the ultimate stainers), so I stuck to veggies, guacamole, and mac&cheese.

Me with a friend of Toby and Sheela. Her mom has boxes and boxes of vintage pattern - a useful connection to have.
Here's Sheela and her sister-in-law who is also pregnant. There were at least 5 pregnant women at the baby shower.
My other brother, Steve, putting some much-needed bug spray on Sheela. Also Toby...

My onesie, yes I know, I should totally go into textile design
