swimming pool achievements

Cameron and Jamie are so happy to be at the pool in this very hot weather. They seem to have reached an age when most of the time they are happy doing their own thing at the pool. Sometimes we swim together and play together but other times they just want to do their own the diving board. A major discovery for them both this year.

Here is Cameron doing his signature "cannonball"!

And Jamie is stepping off the diving board now too!
And in another major achievement, Cameron swam a whole length. Then he said he wanted to do it again and again. So he swam 8 lengths of the pool today. I'm amazed. Most of it was underwater....he'd seen a lifeguard swim under water in the lap lanes so he thought it was cool. But I'm so proud of them both today. They are growing up so fast!

Our trip to Florida was a crazy road trip but well worth it.

Here is Cameron outside Cinderella's castle. We saw a great show outside the castle. Cameron loved seeing Peter Pan.

We played Pirate mini golf with Auntie Donna, George and Michael.
Arrrgghhhh mateys.....

Jamie got to be a real pirate at Magic Kingdom. He volunteered to go up on stage and sign up to join Captain Jack Sparrow and his crew!

Then Jamie got a kiss from Minnie Mouse! He really liked meeting Mickey and Minnie.

Thanks to Auntie Donna and boys for putting us up and putting up with us for a week in Florida. We had a great time!
