Instead of a “baby shower” or “sprinkle” the last Zavodny baby was celebrated before his arrival with a “Diaper Drizzle” Admission to the party was one package of diapers! We had a blast, blue jello shots, Weenies (because baby Z number three was going to be a boy) and bourbon and oreo balls, (again a boy) for goodie bags! “balls for all!”

Every year we try to go up to Julian to go apple picking! This year we stopped at Cook’s Pig Ranch in the morning before we went to pick apples.

First stop: Cook’s Pig Ranch
The kids got to meet, pet, and kiss pigs!
