Marilyn invited me to Spokane for the weekend to celebrate Jeremy and Amanda's baby boy to be with the Kuhlmann family. The guys played golf and the girls got to have breakfast at the Rocket Bakery, shop downtown, and have lunch at Madeleine's. Amanda and her mom, Susan, helped me pick out dress for the SGA reunion in a couple weeks while Marilyn took her traditional weekend nap. At 5 o'clock we gathered at Comstock Park for a meal and baby shower celebration.

If you look close enough you'll see the tears in Amanda's eyes!
Cathy Porter's little Converse shoes were a big hit!
Every couple has special nicknames for their sweethearts and Jeremy and Amanda often call each other "Thing." Cathy found these shirts at a speciality shop in Florida. Jeremy's holding a Thing 3 shirt that is not really noticeable in this picture!
Jeremy spent Sunday morning ensuring family pictures were taken at Cannon Hill Park. The Kuhlmann kids walked to the park in years gone by and spent many hours over there playing with other neighborhood kids. Jeremy made sure every little group got special pictures taken. I was touched by the way they included both Susan's and me in the pictures!

Amanda and Susan. I think by this time we'd all given Susan our opinion about her Grandma name. We helped by searching the Internet for trendy grandma names. He will be her first grandchild. Baby Boy Kuhlmann might have a different idea, but we liked Granzie and Nona.
