Naturally, parents-to-be Emma McWatters and Devin Valdez of Atwater wanted to have a baby shower to prepare for the birth of their first child, already named Ethan, or “Baby E.”
But you know, there’s a pandemic going on right now.
Makes it a little hard to do anything social.
So what did the couple do?
Well, Emma and Devin — who both happen to work at a Taco Bell in Merced — thought about it for awhile, and then came up with the perfect idea: A Drive-Thru Baby Shower!
The couple created an invitation with the words: “Come Wave Hi, Drop A Gift, Grab A Treat, and Drive On By!”
Last Saturday, family and friends did just that.
The day was very special, with all kinds of gifts, and mom shedding a few tears of joy.
