Scotty & I decided that we would participate in a triathlon this past weekend, along with other family & friends! Totally out of my comfort zone but it was so fun! Here we are at 6 in the morning... you can tell by the way we look it's early!

Here goes Scotty! He did great at bike riding! Funny story, so the night before, around nine the boys decided that they should probably get the bikes all ready to go! So, two hours later, we had cages, road tires, and numbers all on the bikes! Even though it made me a little stressed, everything worked out just fine and worked out great during the race!

Here we are near the finish line!
Running our 5k run.

Crossing the finish line!

Honestly, my goal was to finish, and I did! It was a great feeling to finish. We both helped each other through our own rough parts, but the next triathlon, its fend for yourself, so Scotty you better be ready!

Here we all are after finishing the race! Tyler & Travis pretty much rocked it! They both finished around an hour and fifteen minutes! No worries though, the rest of us were right behind them! Great job everyone! Can't wait to see ya next year!

Easter Weekend!

Well, the Easter Bunny made his way to St. George this weekend! He spread a whole lot of eggs out for many children in the Hoopes/ Searle clan! There were lots of kids, eggs, a pinata, and more than enough food to go around!

Scotty & Tess with aunt Jennifer & Trevor! Thanks for making the long haul down!

Dan & Bill grilling it up!

Happy Easter everyone! Hope you had an enjoyable weekend with the family!


Scotty & I had the great opportunity to go golfing this weekend! We went golfing at Sunbrook & had a fabulous time! Thanks Mitch & Cassie for the hook ups! Here I am with my trusty pink ball! I deem this golf trip a success because I didn't lose my little pink ball the whole time!

Mitch patiently teaching Scotty how to hit the ball! His advice really helped and trust me, we all needed it!
