It is our immense pleasure to announce the arrival of the newest Kreil!
Dash Gregory Kreil was born on May 3, 2011 and weighed a whopping 4lbs 13oz! He was adopted into his forever family on May 14th!
Maddox and Daddy meet the baby and we finally choose a name! (Dash went nameless for three days until Daddy and brother could come see him. Until then, Mommy was just calling him Peanut and Schnicklefritz.)

Maddox-Man has been taking gymnastics classes for about a month now and he loves it! His coaches do a great job of keeping all the kids moving during the class, so Mommy is pleased with the amount of energy expended!
Below are some videos from a few different classes during the last month.
Last month, because we are religiously confused (or just because it's a good lesson for our kids on their spiritual heritage) we rounded up the crew and celebrated Passover and Easter.
In previous years, my Passover lamb was palatable at best (and that's being kind). This year for Passover, I turned the lamb responsibilities over to Mark, the master chef, and the results were delicious.

We recently drove up the mountain to Running Springs to visit Erin and Graydon for the day. There was still quite a lot of snow on the ground, and Maddox had a great time hiking in the snow...until we got back to the car and he realized how cold he was.
Last month, while Jeff was on Spring Break, we took a little day trip down to the San Diego Zoo with our friends, Chuck and Lisa. The weather cooperated beautifully, making it the perfect day to enjoy with the animals. (And by "animals" I'm totally referring to Chuck and Lisa.) We stopped a very nice family and conned them in to snapping this photo for us. In chatting with them, we found out that they were vacationing in San Diego from Eagle River, Alaska! It's a small world after all. Wait, wrong park.
