We had an exciting couple of days leading up to Easter. The kids and I returned to St. Louis just before the tornado hit. We got to witness the torrential rains from the safety of our own rooms. Huzzah! The following morning we were informed that the church was out of power as were half the ward. Many had trees where their sunroofs had been. So the Easter egg hunt was canceled. No problem, we needed to relax anyway. So we went to the store where we were informed that the airport closed down yesterday due to the storm. We were almost diverted to Kansas City! The bagger and I both hoped that church would not be cancelled. I mean What is Easter without church? Later Lizzy colored some eggs. We watched a movie and called it a day. 
 Then Easter was upon us! I can't say the clouds parted or anything, but the rain had let up. We had a wonderful service and the kids got a ton of candy from the Primary. Then the rain began as we exited the building to go home. We had a very chill afternoon and then we ate grilled Salmon for dinner with corn on the cob. Not your average Easter feast I know, but very yummy! All in all it was a nice day. I was reminded of Elder Wirthlin's talk, Sunday will come.

Indeed Friday was terrible with it's storms and destruction, but Sunday did come with it's glorious reminder of the life, death and Resurrection of our dear Savior. Sunday did come.
