Mark and Kayla’s Baby Shower/Going Away Party!

This past Monday, I was fortunate enough to have been invited to Mark and Kayla’s baby shower. I had the honor and the privilege to have been present when they were married in 2013 in Florida, so I also consider this an honor and a privilege. However, as great as this occasion is, it is also bittersweet, since I also had to say goodbye to two of the closest friends I could ever ask for. Later that day, Mark and Kayla would be boarding a plane heading to Chicago, where they will begin a new life together, not just as husband and wife, but also as father and mother. So, needless to say, I am happy, yet I’m also sad. Still, this does open up the door for me to finally fly out to Chicago and catch a Cubs game at Wrigley Field.

With that being said, it’s time for pictures. Mark and Kayla, I will miss you!


Babeviltron. For the uninitiated, Mark’s DJ name is Marviltron.



Cake with the picture used to announce the pregnancy. Clever



Kayla and Jennifer



Baby Food Game



Dirty Diaper Game. I did not play. No siree



Games were played. Prizes were won. Words were unscrambled. Seriously, who uses vaccinations as a word? I almost didn’t get it. 🙂



The recently married. I mean Ant and Sandy. Dude to the right? Groomsman Oleg



Saying their goodbyes. 🙁



Something funny was said, probably by me. I’m a funny guy.

Cutting the cake. Notice how she went for Mark first. 🙂



See what I mean? LOL



I’m pretty sure I said something else funny. Not sure if I’ve said this before, but I’m a funny guy.



I assure you, she loves DC. Destroying the Capitol Building was necessary to distribute the chocolate.

And there you have it folks. Happy and sad all in one, but ultimately happy wins out. And to Mark and Kayla: see you both in Chicago! 🙂
