If you throw a man a shower...

... He will likely come home with some fairly random gift offerings. I have to say though, I was pleasantly surprised at what these boys came up with. True, the gifts mainly arrived in the plastic bag they were purchased in, but the variety was amazing. Take a look, and then I'll point out some favorites...


There's a great selection of sports items, trucks, cars, even ear plugs for Dad! One of my personal favorites:


Yep, Jack's first bullets. It will be a while before he's old enough- at least two or three years by Daron's estimation. But really, is it ever too early to start stockpiling ammunition?


I will admit, at first glance I thought these were for real. I haven't spent any time perusing the Gerber aisle, so naturally I assumed that baby food had improved leaps and bounds over the years. Who wouldn't want to expose their kids early on to the joys of Twinkies and Hot Wings? I'd say that the man who made these must have had a lot of free time, but I happen to know that he doesn't. Thanks Ken for the laughs. I'm going to keep these around as a conversation piece.



Got camouflage? We sure do! My boys will be trekking through the woods in style with these great outfits. Not that you'd ever see them. People asked Daron if I was ok with my child wearing camouflage. Sure thing! You won't see me wearing it, but it really is sort of a Barnes boy tradition. In moderation, of course. No camo at church.

What else went down at the shower? Not really sure because I was forbidden from crashing. I heard rumors of great food, lots of Xbox, and scads of guys talking about guy things, and generally eschewing all things feminine and proper. Quote of the night: "We're not doing that, this is a MAN shower!"

Actually the quote of the night was "Do not expect to get any thank you notes cause this is a man shower and we don't do that!" This was followed by general cheering by the assembled group of men.

I have to agree with you! the guys did good! I think Aric did a great job at REI! I LOVE the tiny switchback pants! The part that zips off is smaller than the shorts! Love the ammo! I'm surprised that Aric didn't buy it!

It still amazes me how Ken can not only think of things like that, but pull them off with such ease. Glad you enjoyed the laugh, we had fun making them.
