High Divin'

On Sunday night, we celebrated Keaton's birthday at the Woodriver Aquatic Center. The kids had never been there before and they were excited to go down the waterslides and see the high dive (not go off it). However, peer pressure is an ugly beast and both Bennett and Brady ended up jumping off it a zillion times. Ben was very unsure from the moment he laid eyes on the platform :) but he sucked it up and saved face by joining his friends in line! His face is priceless! He said it felt like time stopped on the way down!
Brady, of course, jumped off the minute the older boys said they were going up.

Cate stuck to the small board. She spends HOURS every week jumping off the board at Paddlers. Most of the time she will wear her floatie so I don't have to get in the water, but sometimes she wants to jump without it and I tread water to make sure she surfaces before she kicks over to the side. I think that by the end of summer she'll be flying solo!

Scott and Cate on the waterslide. She did not love this. No tears but when asked if she wanted to go again, she said "NEVER!"

Working on her favorite stroke...backstroke!
