Last weekend the boys begged me to take them to our apartment pool. I knew that the pool had recently been re-filled with water and that it would be super cold...but what does Dad know, right?
Just to prove a point, I agreed and we all made the 100 foot walk to the very inviting (yet cold) pool.
I announced that I bet the boys would last no longer than 10 minutes in the water.
While the boys inched their was into the frigid water, dear old Dad did the easy (and stupid!) thing...that's right, CANNONBALL!
Kevin and I lasted almost 15 minutes in the water...after a while I was beginning to worry because the water was starting to feel warmer. I was afraid that hypothermia was setting in!
Eric, on the other hand, only lasted about 5 minutes before he got out and covered up with his brand new towel that I got him when I went to Hawaii a few months ago.
All in all, the first swim of 2009 was a bust, but we did get wet and had fun doing it!
