Above are Jeremy and Jamie and their masterpiece. Below is the true reason that Marcos' coworkers choose the Carolina Alehouse after work for drinks and get-togethers - the foosball table. Yes, it's kind of a thing and there is a lot of talking smack around this "sport". Hey, for some guys it's football, and for a bunch of computer nerds, it's... you know, foosball. Below, Jeremy and Brantley take the game very seriously as Orion and Gigi learn from the big guys.
And then for the moment of truth. The party was mainly for Gigi and Orion, who didn't know what we were having - we cut open the cake and inside it was.... blue! A boy! Blue cake and in the middle, a carved out cave stuffed with blue m&ms. And then Gigi did the most horrifying thing - she immediately stuck her hand into the cake to grab fistfulls of the candy! At the time I was mortified, but recently a friend was telling me about how she made a similar cake at her son's birthday party, and when the first slice was taken out two kids at the birthday party did the exact same thing. So maybe it's a primordial kid reaction to finding themselves in front of a cake filled with m&ms...
It was so incredibly thoughtful of Jamie and Jeremy to throw us a little party in honor of our baby. Not everyone who came made it into these photos that I included, but it was a nice group of Marcos' close friends. Always a joy to hang out with these quality people!
