On our way to Branson we were traveling through Joplin, MO so we decided to stop and take some supplies and take some pictures. Things are really progressing along at a steady rate but we were all totally just struck by how devastating this tornado was to the Joplin community. This is something that we will remember for a very long time, do you remember where you were the day of the Oklahoma City bombing or what you were doing when you found out about 9/11? I remember sitting at my friends house watching this on the news just praying for these families and my heart was breaking for them. We live in tornado alley so I've seen a lot of tornados and devastation and it never gets easier.
