Here are the swimmers about to enter the pool and kick some bootay! I was really proud of these guys. Shay probably passed 15 people.
Here we are at the finish-line. Whoo hoo...I sure love these guys

We did it!!! Our stake held its 1st annual tri-athalon and our family entered as two seperate teams. We didn't really train...although Shay has been doing swim team at the highschool. It was a 1/2 mile swim, 4 mile bike and 2 mile run. The bike was supposed to be 8 miles, but because of the huge number of people that signed up they changed it to 4. They didn't have a permit for that many people to bike on the roads...Anywho, here's how it went down.

Shay-swim, Steve-bike, Kinsey-run (Steve actually ended up running w/ her because she was nervous to do it by herself)
Kevin-swim, Derek-bike, Amy-run

Once a Tiger, always a Tiger

A few weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend my 20 year highschool reunion. What a treat! I think reunions must be more meaningful when you grow up in a small town. Not only did I graduate highschool with these folks but I played little league softball, was in elementary school plays, soccer, volleyball, basketball, track, student council, seminary, dances, dates, etc, etc with all of these same people. Heck....we couldn't lose a tooth, get a zit, or go on a date without EVERYONE knowing. Therefore....I consider them pretty much family. And that's how it felt, like I was going home for a family reunion...
The front row is a group of teachers that were able to attend. I loved getting to see and visit with them. They are in many memories...funny, serious, and scary:) All had an impact in my life in some way.
This room and these tables were the very ones I used over 25 years ago to eat lunch. Many a conversation was had sitting at these blue beauties.

Still a bunch of crazy kids if you ask me...

I loved seeing who had families and how many children everyone had. We are a diverse group of people including: nurses, hairdressers, teachers, physical therapist, doctor, hygienists, artists, police officers, border patrol agents, audiologists, etc.
