Last weekend we spent two days in two different pools. The kids loved it. This is where it paid off, dragging those poor kids to the local YMCA in the winter to their weekly swim lessons.
Today was a great day. Hanging out with the kids and wife, going to a friend’s house in the afternoon to take a swim in their pool (they’re out of town and nice enough to share). There’s something about the smell of sunscreen and chlorinated pool water that reminds me of childhood summers in the North Valley where swimming pools were so ubiquitous that when the Sylmar Quake hit the streets were drenched with water dumped from sloshing pools. Anyway, I made a little sketch after I got out of the water as the kids played – it’s as near as I’ve come to a self-portrait on this site yet (just the feet!). Here’s hoping everyone else had an equally fine three day weekend.
