We had a big reveal for HL with fireworks. We had the ultrasound tech write down the results and place them in an envelope and then we waited.... we waited 3 whole weeks for the 4th of July... it was awful trying not to peek in that envelope on the fridge for 3 weeks. All of the family came over to our house for a bbq and we had bought big fireworks for the reveal. We handed the envelope to our good friend and told him to look inside and load either a blue or red firework into the tube... and we all stood on the back deck and heard a "boom" and watched the sky fill with BLUE! It was so cool. So of course we have to do something cool again this time :)
We're planning to have a gender reveal party, a pink and blue party. I saw this idea when I was pregnant with HL after we knew the gender and I swore that we'd do it the next time. So it's finally time, I'm sooo excited! I'll be sure to post lots of pictures when we're done because it took me a while scouring the interwebs to get some good party ideas.
