Spring is here!

The weather has finally taken a turn for the better. After a rough winter of a burst pipe in the basement, broken washing machine, broken sprinkler system pipe in the back yard and just recently a new hot water heater...it is a new season! It has been a while since we last wrote, so we'll catch you up. We fixed all of the above problems which involved flooding the laundry room several times, a 20 foot hole in the backyard and lots of help from Grandpa Walker (the joys of owning a home!). we both have new callings; Kelli was called to be the primary president and Justin was called to be the 1st counselor in the young men's presidency. The kids have grown, and grown... do they ever stop? Hunter runs and runs, and Natalie is working on crawling (She's done it once for Justin) We've been to a few baby blessings, baptisms and birthday parties and are hopefully home for a while.
But now spring is here, there are tulips blooming in our front yard and the kids have moved outside during the day. So hopefully things will calm down (wishful thinking we know.) Here are a few pictures of the kids playing outside. They were so excited that they could see the driveway that we decided to pull out the sidewalk chalk. Hunter colored pictures, and Natalie tried to eat it...but we were outside and loving it!
P.S. Natalie only has Hunter's hand-me-down hats, so she's wearing a blue baseball hat even though its not very girley she has to wear it because she doesn't have any hair to keep her scalp from being burned!

Oh man, that stinks!! Yeah, there are disadvantages for sure being a homeowner. Think of it this way...it you were renting, you would probably still be having those problems because the landlord would be too cheap to fix it! I was wondering...is your dad still a big fan of HP computers. We need to buy a new laptop. I was happy with our Dell until it bummed out after only three years! Talk to you later!
