Can I just say how much I love summer? I love swimming with my kids.
On Tuesday my husband had to do a visit in Silverton so we came along. We swam at the Silverton Reservoir where I also did a few training swims for my triathlon.
I get a little more concerned with swimming with my kids in the open water. Even thought my oldest is an excellent swimmer for an eight year old, I still have her wear a life jacket. We’ve had a large number of drownings in the area the past couple weeks. Many of our lakes and rivers have not warmed up yet and people don’t expect the cold temperatures. Our swim areas tend to be more rustic and not as user friendly as the Midwest beaches I grew up going to. You have to be cautious about drop-offs, rocks, and currents.
On Wednesday we met friends at a local park and on Thursday we relaxed at home. I did not take any pictures those two days.
On Friday the kids had their annual lemonade stand for the Prostate Cancer Foundation.
I race for Prostate Cancer awareness because my grandpa passed away from it in 1989 when I was in junior high. My dad is a survivor.
Saturday was my triathlon. Sunday we had thunderstorms all day. For us thunderstorms are somewhat of a treat because we rarely get them. We have had abnormal humidity this summer and high temperatures. Some complain about the heat, but I kind of like it. It makes it feel more like summer.
