3 hours of fun in the hot hot sun

This is the third swim meet in which we've had the privilege of participating. I should add that it was also the last since we head off for our road trip to Washington next week. One lady who was attending with her sister-in-law's four small children described it as "the worst thing she'd ever had to endure"... rough life.

Here's Audrey and her friend Brinley as they prepare to swim the butterfly. I admit that I had my doubts that a six year old could be taught to do anything similar to the butterfly stroke, but Audrey has amazed us with her learning curve.

I caught these two looking longingly at the kiddie pool that was fenced off for the meet.

The following photos are evidence that Audrey and Bennett filled every moment with either a snack break or a climbing adventure or a rest in the stroller with Jeremiah. Fortunately, the overcast, muggy afternoon lent itself to nicely to great lighting for photos.

Oh, and some swimming! Audrey led her team medley relay with her killer backstroke. They took 2nd of 6 teams.

Is it possible for your daughter to already have a swimmers body? I'm awestruck.

Aaron and Krystal said...

I can't get over the little swim cap Audrey's wearing. It's so cute with her adorable swimsuit. And I'm also feeling rather envious of her nice tan.
