Major Rett Burroughs and his wife Justina are visiting Barb and Lynn Burroughs before being stationed in Colorado. On Friday, Barb and Audrey Rinna threw a baby shower for them at the River’s Edge. Justina received a lot of nice baby goods; some were from when Rett was a baby including his baby cradle. Rett received from his mother-in-law, diaper changing gear, a facemask, wipes, tongs, rubber gloves and a boy baby pee catcher. Rett modeled them for the group. The guests enjoyed the refreshments and Barb had printed the announcement from the Burroughs Production Company for the 2011 Baby Model, to be released in September. This model has changeable seat covers, streamline body, free squealing and two-lung power. It was a fun shower!
