Good Friday has always been a special day to me for various reasons. Our parents got married on Good Friday many years ago, and were married for 49 years. The last day that we talked and visited with our dad was on a Good Friday. He passed away the next day, the Saturday morning before Easter Sunday. While my boys were growing up, I went to Falls Creek as a sponsor for about 9 years straight on Easter weekend. I have many great memories of the sleepless nights, the shaving cream fights, the water balloons, and the shuffling of kids back and forth for athletic events somewhere. The Good Friday in 2002 was the first time that Rick and I went out together. This past Good Friday was no disappointment. It just so happened that it correlated with National Sibling Day, which just so happened that our brother is in town for his yearly visit. So the three of us plus Chad hung out together. We went to Sherman and did our Easter shopping. We visited our aunt. Then that night we went to Babe's with our family and Keelie's. It was so much fun watching them with four kids, which brought back memories of us out with our four children.
