We had a full weekend. I mean, it was unusually full. Friday we drove to Birmingham and dropped off the kids before catching a plane to Louisville, KY to surprise Phillip and McCauley who were getting engaged (see post below). Heads didn't hit the pillow until about 2:00 am thanks to a night out to celebrate in downtown Louisville, which was a lot of fun as it seems "closing down the bar" is a bit rare nowdays with two kids at home. Saturday we made it back to Birmingham in time to reunite the whole fam momentarily before cutting out again, this time with Mark (other brother) and Morgan to see Wicked, which is also awesome by the way. Finally Sunday we were able celebrate Easter multiple times with pockets of family all across town. Easter Sunday included the usual - candy, baskets, food, family pictures, and most importantly a concentrated dose of the gospel to remind our hearts how desparately we need our Savior.
There was a great deal going on all weekend, and things never really seemed to slow down. But amazingly,we headed back to Columbus on Monday afternoon feeling like we had one of the best visits with family that we have had in a long time. Somehow the normal stress that goes along with this kind of traveling just wasn't there. We had a really good time.
