Cake Crumbs and Bones

Bridal showers have never been my favorite thing; baby showers are in that same category. Recently, however, I have experienced two really fun showers - one for my new granddaughter Kierstyn and one for my daughter Kelly. Both were fun and we managed to keep the baby shower within the range of acceptable behavior - which kind of leaves the bridal shower just kind of hanging out there (like some of the bridal party games did), doesn't it?

Yes, it was a naughty and nice bridal shower and everything that might bring to mind - minus any Thunder Down Under or Chippendale action. In fact, the only man involved was a (very nice) 60-year old bearded and silver haired waiter/host who took very good care of us all night long.

We had fun playing games and pinning things to...well...things in our first (naughty)bridal shower game, and then watching as Kelly opened presents in the middle of the restaurant. Some of the bags contained things you would not normally open in the middle of your living room, let alone The Spotted Dog Cafe in Springdale, Utah. But she did and we enjoyed every minute. We also enjoyed our second (nice) bridal shower game at The Spotted Dog and watched Kelly's mouth fill with huge pieces of bubble gum when her answer didn't match the answer Logan had provided earlier.

The Spotted Dog made a delicious cake for Kelly, dinner was delicious and the company couldn't have been better. Kelly, Karynn (the co-hostess), Kalen, Daniele (the hostess), BreAn, Polly (Logan's darling Mom - Kelly is so lucky!), and me.

I love bridal showers with this bunch... and this one was the best; when we were ready to head home there was nothing left but laughter, cake crumbs and, erhmm, bones.
