My family also threw a surprise baby shower and held it at my parent's house. I was definitely surprised, and it was a lot of fun!
I've had big baby showers for my previous two children and just felt like three showers was asking so much. For Harbor, I actually had four baby showers- so, so blessed, but I just felt like I wanted to keep things simple and not ask everyone to go all out. Of course, my family wouldn't stand for no shower at all, so I was very humbled that they had a little family affair for us!
