An Airhead Shower

As some of you know hardwaregrrl and her partner adopted a little boy. We had an idea to give them an ADV shower, so here are a few pics. Bravo to you ADV peeps out there as she and everyone else were shocked and truly pleased with everyone's generosity. Help me wish their happy family well on this new adventure.

From left to right, My Wife, Bgoodsoil (back to camera), Fearless (beard), globalt38 (floor), Blaine.Hale (sofa), Blaine's girl Renea, harwdaregrrl (Jenna), Jenna's Partner Christan, George and his wife.

First Gift

Well done ADV. Well Done.

Whoop Whoop! Wish I was closer to you lot. Good to see lots of smiling faces.
Just remember, with a wife it's stock parts only. No upgrades. With forks, the sky is the limit. New springs, dampers ... everything -Beater

For baby things, not bike things. Funny. Does anybody make baby racks?

Good luck, you three!

Good on ya! The little one WILL change your life, it's truly a wonderful change though. The hardest part is taking time for granted. Good luck and stay positive, I'm happy for the both of you!

Sidecar = baby carrier = baby "thing" = easy rationalization.

Wish we could have been there. Huge props to Fred & "Team Atlanta" for putting this together.

Sorry I'm late to the party....turns out, babies don't give a shit that you need to post "thanks" on advrider.

It's funny how hard it is to say "thank you" to a group of friends when they do something so incredibly selfless for you. I think it's because you don't want them to see you cry. Friends that you may never get the chance to hug, or shake their hand because they're your friends from the internet. Well turns out, I've got quite a few!

Thanks again to Fred and Mark for coming up with the idea and executing it brilliantly!!! And it was so great to see Brad, Big George, Jason, Blaine, Renee, Noelle, Mary Gay, Bucky, and Phil! God, I hope I didn't leave anyone out?? And lesson's hard to hold a baby and take pics. So forgive me

Phil and Mark...

The haul!

He's unimpressed.

He thinks the Dobber is A-OK!

And to all my internet pals.....look for me in your inbox....I'll do my best to send "thank you's" as fast as I can. Mom raised a polite midwesterner......the swearing came later.
