Keriann's Shower

Last weekend was a Keriann wedding weekend.  We drove to Iowa Friday, got stuff ready for the festivities Friday afternoon, went to Baxter Fun Days Friday night, Saturday was the shower and bachelorette parties, then drove home Sunday.  Miles and T.J. stayed home since it was such a quick trip.  Here are some pictures from the shower.

Playing Jeopardy.
Our cousins brought their babies too!

I thought I would share the categories and questions I used for the Jeopardy game.  I didn't take a very good picture of the board up close.  I just used a piece of foam board, cut little strips of paper taped to the top of the board for the categories, then did rectangle pieces of paper with 100, 200, etc. on the front and the question and answer on the back.  I just rolled a piece of tape to stick the paper to the board.  We went around the room and took turns, that way everyone got a turn.  So if the person whose turn it was got it wrong, it just went to the next person until someone got it right.  But the turn went back tot he next person after the original guesser.  Clear as mud?  When I asked the question, I removed the tape.  Whoever answered the question right, I handed them the paper to keep track of how many points they had.  I also did two Double Jeopardy questions.  Oh, and I told the guests to answer like Jeopardy -- who is or what is, etc.

Here are the categories and questions:
