Following church, we went to "grandpa" Pete's house for his annual Easter egg hunt. Definately not to mistaken with any Easter egg hunt however. He has about a quarter acre of land in his backyard and probably spent the past 3 days hiding eggs. I believe at last count there were over 25 dozen eggs to be found. The kids loved it and so did we because there is always a special tree for the adults where money will be found inside of the eggs.
Aside from all the Easter activities, I am particularly grateful for the reminder and time to reflect on the resurrection. I believe it really hits home when you have a close love one pass away and it causes you to think about them and how lucky we are to have the gospel in our lives. It will be 2 years ago this week that our family lost our little brother Kristopher and thanks to Jesus Christ, I know we will have the opportunity to be reunited with him again. What a gift and blessing the gospel is to have that knowledge.
