The families had provided some delicious food, including some brisket, fruit salad, and of course dessert! We ate and talked, sitting by the water's edge. Then it was time for presents. Since I had to open presents by myself at the bridal shower, I made Matt open these so he could experience the awkwardness that is having everyone look at you. I know, I'm such a loving fiance'!

|Some of our friends got us a lego set and a mystery lego person. We had to put it together of course!|
Earlier in the afternoon, a swan and her baby (apparently called a cygnet) came swimming by across the lake. When the shower was almost over, the swans came back and were met by another swan. They then exchanged the baby, as if the first was saying, "I had her all day, now it's your turn!"
The two adult swans did the whole form a heart thing with their necks, though I wasn't able to get my camera out quick enough for that. Here are the pictures I did get though!
