North Carolina Update

Alright, next update of the summer. After the great trip in New York, Porter and I went to North Carolina! What is in North Carolina do you ask? Friends AND family! My dad's side of the family all live in North Carolina, so we went and visited them, and that was spectacular! We visited Grandmommy, Aunt Karen, and Cousin Hanna. There was a lot of talking, lots of eating, and lots of laughing! I hadn't been to Grandmommy's house for a long time, and it was nice to be around all the books, the pictures, and the same great smells and memories that go along with her house. They of COURSE looooved Porter. It's the first great-grandbaby on the Kesler side, and he sure did like playin and talkin with his great-grandmommy! All in all, it was a great visit!

ALSO, were friends! My old roommate Brittany Ruch lives in NC (like, 3 miles away from Grandmommy), so we stayed with her and her sister Tanja. Tanja is a great cook, so we ate like kings every day we were there. Brittany showed us around the great state of NC, and her neat town of Durham and the surrounding area. Everything with her is a blast--even going to 16 different stores to get inexpensive formula! My friend Kate lives in NYC, and that isn't very far from NC so she came down for a few days! We went to a farmer's market (there are pictures in an earlier post), and then to the beach! It was a great trip! We also went on a walk through the Duke gardens during Sunday School (I don't actually remember what the purpose of that was, but it certainly was enjoyable!)

Rachel Zoe

I know---I need to update more, but just an announcement that the season premier of the Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo was on last night and it was soooo good. I die for that show...and for her. Here is some of her work:

Shaving Cream Finger/Body Painting

My mom had us finger paint with shaving cream one time while we were little and still living in Utah. I just bought Jordan some new shaving cream, and it reminded me of that so I decided to do it with Porter! He slipped and slid around the kitchen room floor and just thought it was radical. Great job Mom!

He is just GORGEOUS

I could not RESIST putting this for all the world to see--in my opinion he is the cutest little boy that has ever been--EVER! Ah, how he loves water...

Next Update---NY

The next part of our summer was our trip to New York!

Callie got married, so we went out for that! Her colors were plum and gold, and we were planning on having it at the Eckenfelder's home, which was the same place we had our NY reception, but it rained so we had it at the church instead. It was really beautiful. This is the only picture I have of it--I need to get more from my Grandma, but the whole thing was so beautiful. We put icicle lights under the white fabric, and put purple fabric over the lights going upwards so it was just a purple glow--it was so pretty. I don't have any pictures of Callie either, but if you go on her facebook or on Rachel's facebook then I'm pretty sure there are pictures there.

We went and visited the Geers, which was so fun.

We really just had a great time. We went on a "girl's day" with Callie and Mom, went to a Madrigal dinner, hung out with Will and his best friend Paul, just hung out and played, had a great lunch with Katherine Fritz and went to a great kid's store and bookstore, went to Great Escape with Dan, and had family pictures taken. I'll put pictures of all of those things (except for the Madrigal dinner), but you can just know that it was a GREAT time.

I'm too tired to talk about the North Carolina trip just yet---that's for next time!
