Swimming Sunday

Yesterday, while many of you were either running marathons in freezing temps, or just huddled inside to stay away from freezing temps, we went swimming. It's still record-breaking hot here (and is forecast to continue to be in the 90s this week), and yesterday morning seemed like a good day to go to the pool and chillax some.

Here's Norah in her swimsuit before we left the house. She looks stoked, right?
The pool was a comfortable temp, and she spent the time floating with both Jerry:And me:
Even though there are no smiles in the pics, I think she liked it. Or, even if she didn't, it wore her out and she took a long nap yesterday afternoon, which was nice.

The only bad thing about the pool experience was that as he was walking back, Jerry stepped in a hole and tore off a chunk of his foot. He was carrying Norah and managed not to drop her when he fell, but he really did hurt his foot and he's limping around today on it. I told him that he should have gouged a slightly bigger hole so that we could sue our HOA for some kind of negligence. Yes, when it comes to our HOA, I could quite easily be persuaded to be litigious. Even if I have to sacrifice Jerry's foot.

Norah is getting so big! Amazing how fast the little buggers grow. Hope Jerry's foot heals fast.

I can not believe she is 2 months old already!!! They grow up so fast! It's still hot here too. People are talking about snow and I just can't comprehend it! Hope Jerry's foot heals fast!

Norah looks like a doll. So cute. And I hope Jerry's not in pain. My foot hurt just reading about the chunk of missing foot.

She's cute even when she's not smiling!

Hope Jerry's foot feels better quickly. Good job not dropping Norah.

What is this pool you speak of? Just kidding. Sounds like a fantastic Sunday.

It looks like a fab pool, even if it has foot sacrificing holes around it!

I just read a snow covered race report and now I am on to a Sunday afternoon report that included 90 degree temps and swimming - gotta love blogging! Enjoy your week with that cutie pie! :)

90s?! It's too cold to use a pool without a heater nowadays around here. Glad you're able to enjoy the weather and the pool. Hoping for a speedy recovery for Jerry!

MN Mom said...

Norah looks adorable!!! Looks like she was content.

Sorry about Jerry's foot. Hope it gets better soon. could you sew the hoa for a lesser chunk of cash than if he lost the foot...those A__ H___'s deserve it!

Sorry to hear about Jerry's foot - I'm sure he sacrificed to save Norah - what a Dad!
