We went over to JoJo’s to swim in the pool. The weather didn’t look promising, but we went anyway. A small amount of swimming was completed before the lightning got everybody out of the pool. One of her friends with her two kids came over and the kids had somebody to play with. We were also blessed with a pizza creation by Dale Bryant!

The kids always want to go to the pool. I should make it a point to take them more often as they have a bunch of fun. Ok, I might even have fun myself. Danelle was kind enough to document our craziness on the diving boards.
Sonora is still building up her confidence, so she tends to jump towards the side of the pool to minimize any amount of swimming after she gets in. As she warms up, she’ll jump out more, but still to the side.
I tend to do “crazy” things to make the kids laugh and help them not be afraid.
I perform front flips that make the kids laugh. From my perspective, I jump high, tuck and sometimes come down feet first. From the camera’s perspective, I’m anything but graceful!
Corvin likes to jump off high and spike straight into the water. If you’re wondering where Danelle is for the action, the answer is being the photographer. She isn’t much for the diving boards. Come to think of it, I don’t think I’ve ever seen her go off the board!
My current employer has a pool table in their 12th floor break room. It has a fantastic view overlooking the Mississippi River. Today, I played my first game of pool after 6 months of employment there. The game was against Ryan and I won.
