Easter Weekend



This weekend was a special weekend for a number of reasons. The obvious and most exciting is that we got to celebrate resurrection Sunday. "If only for this life we have hope in Christ, we are of all people most to be pitied." Had he not risen, our faith would be empty and unfounded. Praise God Jesus rose! As good ol Ravi Zacharias says "Death is Dead! Death is Dead!"

In addition, I got to spend some quality time with one of my favorite friends, Katie. On Friday, Katie and I got coffee and headed over to Como Zoo. It was supposed to be a nice day but that didn't pan out. Luckily they have an amazing section inside filled with all sorts of green. I brought my camera  along and she and I took a few pictures. All the floral pictures were taken by Katie as well as the ones with me in them (obviously.) Speaking of, if you are in the midwest and are ever looking for a photographer. Look her up. Here are a few from our little outing

Then Friday evening, we made the hike to my home-town. Its always good to be home. I got to see my parents, grandparents and two of my cousins. We took a few pictures on sunday for Eowyn's first Easter and enjoyed the rest that comes from being with such easy going family.


Right before we left, we grabbed a few pictures of Eowyn with my mom and dad. She LOVED getting to be with them and they tired her out enough that she slept awesome on the way home.  Her little coos and giggles attested to the fact that she had a good time. And she got her first easter present. The kid shrieked at the fuzzy bunny my mom bought for her.  It was such a good weekend.

P.s. Isn't my mom a babe?

This week E and I get to go hang out with my sister and next week we get to see Ben's fam. This is my favorite time of year.
