Every morning is Easter morning!

Ross and I had a very non-traditional Easter this year, however it was absolutely wonderful. The thing is, we realize that Easter isn't about just one day to remember Christ's resurrection. It's about celebrating Jesus every single day of our lives.

We started off the weekend with "Good Friday". Ross had the day off from work and so we invited his family down to our neck of the woods for a picnic. It was a beautiful day and we were able to sit out by our lake and have wine and cheese, strawberries, and Cadbury Eggs-a Barry family favorite.

On Saturday, we woke up bright and early (5am) and flew to St. Louis for a Cardinals game with our dear friends Molly and Andy. The Parkers are an amazing couple that we've become friends with here in Dallas. I met Molly through grad school in my first semester and we've been buds since. Ross and I really click so well with Molly and Andy and God has really blessed us by putting them in our lives. So, we flew to St. Louis and showed the Parker's some of the highlights of the city (the Arch and Delmar Blvd) before heading to the game. The day was beautiful and the Cards dominated the game 11-2. We were even able to see a Pujol's grand slam! It was awesome! After the game we ate dinner at The Old Spaghetti Factory and had a drink at Morgan St. Brewery and Pub. We were exhausted from being up so early and ended the night pretty early around 10pm. The next day we woke up at 6am and flew back to Dallas. Since we weren't back in time for church, Ross and I caught the tail end of the service online as Pastor Joe was really bringing the message home and then we napped. After that, we headed back out to Andy and Molly's for an Easter dinner as Molly had offered to cook us a Pot Roast! Isn't she amazing!! So we spent the evening fellowshipping over food and having an "Office" marathon! How fun!

Molly prepared pot roast, carrots, potatoes, green bean casserole, rolls, and sopapilla cheesecake! This girl rocks!
