Picnic at Niagara Falls.

I've never considered myself "good with children". Actually I kinda feared the whole daddy-thing at first. But I must admit, my wife and I are all about our children. They are sooo very fun. I love being a dad. But at the same time, I have no desire to hang out with other people's kids in general. I thought that would change a little over time, but it hasn't. I seem to only throughly enjoy hanging with my own.

Photos from my parents house.

My wife and I packed up the kids and visited my parent's house in Springville a couple weeks back. We left the kids with my mom and hiked a bit in the woods. We took our new Cannon Rebel XTi with us for fun. It was so refreshing to get outside and hang out with my wonderful wife. =)

Oh, for the record, I didn't grow up there. But it is a fun place to visit.

Indianapolis, LANs, Geekiness, etc.

PC Gaming = Fun.

My weekend...

First, a little background info... my best friend's occupation is any 18 year old gamer geek's dream job. He is the PR manager for Palit for all of North America. Basically, his job is to keep customers happy by attending LAN parties across the country and do some PR stuff as well. His company sells high end gaming video cards. This weekend I met some of his customers. Who are his customers? Glad you asked...

...these guys:

Darren occasionally asks me to join him for a free "vacation" to random LANs when he drives instead of flies. This one happend to be in Indianapolis (all on his dime too, whoo hoo) for a 2 day 200+ person LAN Party called Stompfest. Which was being held inside a school auditorium.

40+ hours of smelly geeks dressed in black (mostly) playing video games on their PCs. Woo Hoo!

With my wife home attending to our children for the weekend (surprisingly, I don't feel guilty about this, maybe I should), I stepped back into my teenage/twenty-something years and proceeded to play video games and eat junk food the whole weekend till my eyes were crazy blood shot and had to run to the bathroom to puke. I figure I spent close to 50 hours inside video games over the weekend (between the LAN party and a day or so at a hotel gaming it up).

Yes, I happen to be a gamer and absolutely love competing in tournaments. Oh, I'm PC gamer, not a console gamer. There is a big difference. But tis not important right now, I digress.

I am such a geek.
