Spring Break in St. George...well actually Hurricane!

It has become a little tradition that during Spring Break we go down to Hurricane and visit Corey, Jessica, and Colin. We love hanging out with them and enjoying the nice weather and fun things to do down there.

On Thursday we just kind of hung out...Kacy, Corey, and Jessica all had to work. Friday we went to St. George and hiked Red Rock, went to Old Navy went furniture shopping with Jessica, ate dinner and of course got our Neilsen's frozen custard fix! On Saturday we went to Zion National Park. It was the first time we've done that, and it was a lot of fun. Sunday was Church, yummy food, and the drive home.
Our annual hike at "red rock"...the kids love climbing all over this cool place. Of course little Colin was fearless!
Look we have a BOY...just kidding Colin just didn't want to be left out of the picture.

Here we are at Zion. We hiked to the river...just behind us is where the Narrows ends.

Brynn is so cute and so funny! She set up this cute picture of her contemplating the beauty of the river.

Lucy on the hike. Yes, she insists on wearing a dress even when we are going hiking!

And Lucy also insisted that Kelsey wear a dress as well...I know what mother accomodates her four year old like this?! This is Kelsey on the trail, but she spent most of the hike in the backpack.
Everyone had so much fun playing in the river. Here they are finding rocks to throw in the river.

Here is a cute family picture of Corey and Jessica and Colin just off the trail. Baby Boy number two will join them in July!

Here is Mary pursing her new love of rollerskating on Corey and Jessica's street.

Kelsey and Colin are being so cute here on his little powerwheel, but don't let this fool you these two were at it our whole visit! It was actually pretty funny!


We had a wonderful Easter this year with all the usual traditions...dying Easter Eggs, finding baskets on Easter Morning (this year the EB had ryhming clues!), and an Easter Egg Hunt and dinner with the Kilpatrick Family. This year we enjoyed having General Confrence over Easter. We also had our first indoor Easter Egg Hunt due to all the SNOW we woke up to!
The girls holding up their favorite eggs!
Lucy's favorite Egg
Everyone worked so hard on their eggs. Kelsey sadly (okay not too sad) was asleep, so it made for very peaceful eye dying time...we didn't spill any of the cups of dye this year!

Brynn got very into it, you should have seen her hand by the end!

Kacy gets very into dying eggs, I guess it is an artisic outlet for him. Here are his masterpieces!

All the pretty eggs!

Documenting our snowy Easter morning!

Lucy was so excited she got Princess and the Frog

What a beautiful Easter morning!

Mary's 1st Piano Recital

On March 21st Mary had her first piano recital. She has been taking piano since last June, and seems to enjoy it...although getting her to practice is like pulling teeth! She is doing really well though, and although she was very nervous for her recital she played her songs perfectly!

For all you computer enthusiasts

First, I need to say this is not Jenn posting this, but rather the computer geek who lives in the house. I just built the computer you see in the picture for a client, and the specs are:

- Intel i7 975 Extreme Edition CPU
- ASUS Motherboard P6T Deluxe V2
- 6GB DDR3 Corsair Memory
- EVGA Nvidia GeForce 9800GT Graphics Card
- 1TB Hard Drive
- ATX full tower case (moves a lot of air)
- Windows 7 Ultimate Edition

This machine benchmarks extremely high, and will be used mainly for video editing and production with additional graphics cards to follow. We didn't go with a liquid cooling solution due to the case moving sufficient air for the intended use and the temperature remaining low due to special application procedures.

If you or anyone you know are interested in an estimate for a custom computer to fit your specific needs, contact us.

and the pictures follow.....

Before the power is turned on.
