There are some friends that you would do anything for. And that would do the same for you in return. So when the DeKornes told us they were moving for the third time in 6 months, we thought we should pack up the minivan and take a road trip to New Orleans. My mom, affectionately referred to by the others as "Geha" was kind enough to come with us and was a total lifesaver. I barely photographed the trip except for a few treasures below. These were from the 4 hours that Geha and I watched all 5 kids in a hotel room during a rainy morning in Mandeville, Louisiana. Once I had sang every song in my repertoire, we resorted to toilet paper fashion.
Just a simple statement piece
Cruz also took his first shower there
After we returned from our big road trip, Cruz started solid food.
And he's been eating us out of house and home ever since.
At least he gets his appetite from me.
We were thrilled that Britt and Reid "Breid" decided to tie the knot the weekend after we got back from New Orleans. They even asked Isla to be their flower girl. The DeKorne's came back for a fun-filled weekend.
We kicked off the weekend with the rehearsal dinner at Matter of Taste.
So the big day was upon us. After weeks of practicing "walk and fro" with her flower petals,
our little flower girl started down the aisle forgetting her basket altogether
when she saw her daddy at the front of the church.
Everyone giggled at her cuteness...
and then she quickly retreated.
Fortunately these two made it down the aisle without a hitch.
And we just hung out with the coolest usher in the church nursery.
After the recessional, Isla was more than happy to take "her tuwn" and walked down like a champ.
At least she's cute and Breid still loves her.
We took her back home to enjoy some quality time with her friends
God bless the babysitters including Geha who came back for more.
The reception was lovely.
The DJs were amazing
and the photographer even posed for a picture with me
Lots of lovely ladies in attendance
and many partied till the break of dawn.
These two are truly a once upon a time
A whirlwind of about 10 days, many states, a lot of fried food and the best friends ever.
