We headed to Indiana after work on Thursday evening (6/16 - Jef's Birthday). We got to town around 9:30p, to waiting parents and doggies. Stewie always has such a great time being at Grandma & Grandpa's house with Domino & Gracie.
On Friday morning we headed over to Ashley's (my sister) house to get started on party prep. As soon as we get there Claire runs up and gives me the biggest hug. I hadn't seen her in 2 month so I thought she might be a little shy at first. Not the case, she loves her Aunt Kika!! Mom, Ashley and I leave Dad & Jef to hang out with the kiddos while we ran to Joann Fabrics & grocery store. The rest of Friday was spent prepping food and making sweets. Ashley really out did herself this time and stayed up until midnight working on the cake. When we walked in on Saturday morning this is what we saw....

We had 3 different game areas set up so people could play at their leisure (and at their own risk). Table #1 was the Smelling table. There were 10 diapers filled with various food items. The person who got the most correct won a prize! To the left is my Aunt Maggie and friend Cindy demonstrating how to play.
From there you could head over to the other side of the room to guess what day Baby Otto will grace us with his presence.
Here are some examples of what everyone took home as well as the kiddos just being silly with the hats.

|This one was Jef's idea. The camera was quick so you had to be too.|
We even practiced our moves.
