I've always loved Easter. It's not like my love for Christmas (which knows no bounds) but I love the time of year, I love the feeling of rebirth and new life, I love the warm weather creeping in, and I love having another opportunity to reflect on the life of my Savior.
Easter came at the perfect time of year in Nanjing. Some locals say that spring is the best time of year here, but it is very short. Other locals say that Nanjing goes from winter to summer, no spring in between. And I'm beginning to see that they might be right. However, the weekend of Easter was warm and beautiful, and how better to take advantage of such gorgeous weather than to have a picnic!

We went to an AMAZING park and put together an egg hunt for the kids in our branch and then the guys and some of the more adventurous girls had a "Bunny Bowl" (like a Turkey Bowl).

|Beautiful day for a picnic!|
