Ok so this might get a bit long but I will try to sum up the last 9 years or so. After high school I worked the summer and went on a mission to mexico. I got real sick when i was down there. Long story short i spent more time looking for bathrooms than i did people to teach. After about 14 months i came home and lived at home as a missionary while they did lots of tests on me.
After about 2 months of that they gave up and i was honorably released from being a missionary.
I learned a lot and grew a lot while i was out. After my mission I went to the community college and played on their club volleyball team. that was tons of fun. Later i went to uvsc for a very short time. I figured out that college wasnt really my thing so i just kept working different jobs trying to find something i enjoyed doing. I also started country dancing and became very good at it going 2-3 times a week for like 6 years. That's acually where i met my wife April.
the first time i saw her i was with brian williams and he picked a fight with her lame boyfriend. A few weeks later i started asking her to dance and got real good together.
after a month or so of dancing with her i got up the nerve to ask her out. We dated for about a year, she wasnt lds when i met her. we broke up for a while and she started taking the missionary discussions and was baptized. we continued to dance and later got back together and where married in the sl temple in september of 2004. She helped me get started doing wedding videos by putting all the equipment on her credit cards before we were married. I started out working for my older brother. I now own my own company I shot about 100 weddings this year. It's tons of fun and very rewarding. I found something that i love and it pays the bills. April does hair out of our house and last year started shooting photography for our company. So we get to work together quite a bit. Our son Zade is about 20 months now and is absolutely the cutest kid ever and the craziest kid ever. It took a while for me to learn this but family is what life is all about. We are expecting a baby girl in march. She will be two years younger than Zade. We are probably going to name her Daisy. I have been playing in rec basketball leagues for quite some time now. I dont play church basketball it's way too dangerous. We live in a home in West Jordan about 75th south and redwood road. I am in the young men's presidency in our ward, which keeps me fairly busy. so i guess that's all for now.
i have posted a few pictures and videos so you can see our family.

Hello all! Hope everyone else gets on here and updates us with the latest in their lives. Here is my update. I am still working at Janis Financial as a Mortgage Broker and loving it.We, Sharla and I, have two kids. Their names are Aspen Bree (4.5 Yr old) and Brindley Saige (18 Months). They are so much fun to come home to and play with. I sure love being a Dad.I recently was called into Young Men's as a Deacon's Quorum Advisor / Assistant Scout Master. Boy is that an interesting calling. The Ward we are in has decided that it is extremely important and necessary to have a camp out every weekend, so it is quite demanding to say the least.All is well with us and hope to hear from you all soon and catch up on the happenings in all of your lives.

This is Tony Wariner, umm about me. I'm working and going to school at ITT TECH, living the good life. I'm not married yet, I decided to go the alternate route and not get married at the age of 21 almost like everyone else. So I don't have any pictures of my kids and stuff. In fact I have no pictures stored on this computer but on my next entry I'll try to add some on here. Anyways, that's all that I'm doing, and see ya'll at the ten year i guess?

Hey there Lancers - I can't believe that it has almost been 10 years since we've graduated. It is so fun to read about what everyone has been up to. After graduating I went up to Utah State University. I lived in California the summer of 2001 and loved every moment of it. Weekends were full of going to the beaches, the redwoods, the 'city', pretty much anywhere along the coast. (Now I know why so many people want to live there). The following summer I did study abroad in Switzerland with the graphic design program at USU. In May 2003 I graduated with my BFA in Graphic Design. After graduating I was Manager at Memories a scrapbook store in Logan. While there one of my employees kept trying to set me up with her brother. She thought we would be perfect together. After a month or two I finally agreed to being set up with him. Little did I know, we were perfect for each other.
Dwayne and I were engaged a few months later. Unfortunately he was called to active duty the day before he was going to propose. To make a crazy long story short, we were married May 15, 2004. He was sent over to Afghanistan two weeks later. We were very lucky though, we were able to talk almost everyday while he was gone. While he was over seas I was transferred to the Bountiful Memories store and managed that store for a year. During this time Dwayne returned from over seas and started up at the University of Utah. I then started working as a graphic designer for a scrapbook distributor. After I worked here for awhile I decided this wasn't where I wanted to be. The designers worked extremely long hours and I never got to see Dwayne. I was hired at the University of Utah in the financial aid office. University jobs are the way to go!At this time we were expecting our first little one. Dylon McKay Gentry was born April 21, 2007. After he was born I did go back to work for a little bit, but decided that I needed to stay home with our little boy. I do miss working alot, I loved my job! But I know that this is where I need to be right now. Dylon is happy all the time and quite mellow (he takes after his dad on that one). We love his toothless smile and his laughing. He is extremely energetic, I worry for when he can crawl and walk. I don't know if I'll be able to keep up with him!Dwayne will be graduating in May with his Bachelors in Urban Planning and then next fall we will be off to Dental School. (I know, what does Urban Planning and Dentistry have to do with each other?) He has been interviewing this fall and we will find out in December where he has been excepted. Hope you are all doing well...it will be exciting to see every one at the 10 year. Have many good days to come.
