Parents-to-be decide to ‘Live Mas’ by organizing their own Drive-Thru Baby Shower

Friends, loved ones of Atwater couple drive by, drop off gifts!


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.
