Sun September 11 at 2:30 PM, Prospect Park, Brooklyn

the young rope-rider is having a baby in September, and I think a celebration is in order. Let's have a picnic in Prospect Park! RESCHEDULED THANKS TO THAT JERK IRENE!
**Update: We have pushed two weeks due to Hurricane Irene, from August 28th to September 11th. Also, we found a general location!**

I will be bringing a variety of food items, feel free to bring anything you might like. I suggest others bring things to sit on and drinks for themselves.

We will meet at Long Meadow near the 9th st and Prospect Park West entrance. Hopefully we can find a spot to sit somewhere close to there!

I cannot tell a lie, there might be a cheesy baby game or two. But I promise, no one will have to eat anything brown or any other color out of a diaper.

Should you wish to bring a gift for the youngest rope-rider, I hear books and baby carriers (hand me down is cool!) are in need, and they already have more than enough blankets to go around.

I will (no kidding) be in a convent in Alabama that weekend. But you can bet yer booties that baby will have a present from me.

A convent??? LOL.

Yup, two of my best friends from grade school are nuns at the same convent, and I'm going to visit.

Sounds fun!

I live across from a convent but I never see any nuns. It is a mystery! This sounds super fun and I am excited.

oh heck, I have a bridal shower to go to then.
posted by sciencegeek at 2:20 PM on July 23, 2011

The last baby shower I went to, we had baby themed games. The one I remember the most was the one where we estimated (using string) how big around the mom-to-be had gotten by that point. Which makes me wonder: Why do people do that at wedding and baby showers? Just so there can be pictures of people doing silly things?

(Note: I think doing silly things in a park is awesome. But I'm sure TPS will come up with something better than that.)

Silly things are required at a babby party! It's just HOW IT IS!

Yeah also being really pregnant doesn't make for good conversation later on. There's pretty much stuff like "hey, so, you're gonna push something out of your cervix soon that's crazy huh. Or things to argue about.

I know another pregnant lady and we argued about red m&ms once so the next time I saw her we were like "So...both our babies will probably wear clothes. That's cool. Oh you drink liquids? Me too! Wow!'

Just pretend like the quotes worked in that comment. Babby is stealing all my smarts.

Do we know what sex the youngest rope-rider will be? I need to know whether I'm getting babby a gun or a kitchenette.

Sorry work will make me a no due to the anniversary programming.

I'll be in class until 3-3:30. How late are you folks going to be there? (I know, I know, I hate to be that guy.)

I'll try to make it if I can!

Life is conspiring to keep me away from this meetup, I think. If you guys are still together or doing things later (like dinner) after 5pm, pls. let me know. TPS, you have my number.

I have to take my sick laptop into the Apple Store to get a professional opinion. =(

YRR, best regards for you and the n00b! Can't wait to see you both!

Guys, it's looking rainy—do we have a rain location?
posted by ocherdraco at 9:54 AM on September 11, 2011

If it rains we can head to my apartment which is close by.

Hey mother nature, WHY SO LITERAL?
posted by the young rope-rider at 10:27 AM on September 11, 2011

On train now. If we had more things unpacked, I'd have you guys over.
posted by TrishaLynn at 11:08 AM on September 11, 2011

I'll be at the park at 2:30, we can determine then if we want to stay out or go in.
posted by ThePinkSuperhero at 11:16 AM on September 11, 2011

hello! TPS wanted to report that they're just inside the park entrance at 9th St.
posted by Stynxno at 11:30 AM on September 11, 2011

note: there has been some movement. they've gone inside the park a bit - follow the path toward the left.
