Splashin' Good Time for All

We spent the afternoon at the pool...the indoor pool. It hasn't even reached 70 degrees during the past 2 weeks so we gave up and headed indoors for our water fun. There are several nice outdoor pools to choose from here and I know that someday we might get to try them!
It has been awhile since the boys have been swimming so I wasn't sure how it would turn out. Braxton had a few swimming lessons this spring through school but I wasn't sure how much they had helped him to feel more comfortable. I shouldn't have worried of course.
Braxton is always fearless but Cayden has always been a stronger swimmer. They both ran immediately to the diving boards. Not only did they jump from the highest board, but they quickly began to challenge each other to do tricks off the board. (I occasionally had to look the other way but I did manage to refrain from discouraging their "enthusiasm")
The pool's policy was "No Cameras Allowed" so I have no exciting pictures to share. I had to take the picture shown above outside the building.
By the way...I don't remember indoor pools being extremely loud, hot and humid. Maybe things just look rosier as time passes!

Ahh . . . public pools . . . the sting of over-chlorinated water . . . the locker room that smells like wet dog and sweat socks . . . the little kids who pee in the water . . . the fat old guy in a Speedo . . . the rush of teenage testosterone . . . lol.
