This Weekend

On Friday afternoon, Bech, Jack, and I got in the car and headed to DC.  One of Bech's good friends (and a groomsman in our wedding!) was getting married in Asheville.

We spent Friday night with Katy and Dave and went to Z Burger to celebrate Dave's birthday early.  Katy took a picture of us all there, but I can't figure out how to put it on here.  So...just imagine that we ate at a cross between Fudruckers and 5 guys and we had fun.  Got it?  Okay.

Saturday morning Bech and I hit the road at 5 a.m.  Katy and Dave had agreed to babysit Jack so that we could be childless for the wedding. 

I think Jack had fun!

Bech and I stopped in Spruce Pine, NC, on the way to the wedding for the Spruce Pine Potter's Market.  Basically, certain local potters are asked/chosen to be a part of a small market.  Bech knew and loved most of these potters' work.  In fact, he owns some work from several of them.  He had a blast geeking out and talking to some of his pottery heroes.

Then we drove the rest of the way to the wedding.  It was a beautiful wedding--small, outdoors, and fun.  I was a little nervous because, except for the groom, I literally knew no one there.  But I had a wonderful time talking to and meeting new people.  Bech had worked at Camp Timberlake with Chris (that's how they met), so there was a good amount of Camp people there that Bech knew.

We spent the night in Asheville and got on the road Sunday morning at 8:00.  We made it to DC by 4:30 and home by 8:15.  So basically we were exhausted.  We were gone for about 54 hours, and 25 of them were spent in the car.  But we were so glad we went.

I am ready, though, to go to Asheville again soon, and for a longer weekend.  After all, it is our dream city!
