Our stay in Santa Clara is coming to an end. We have had a very nice time. My dad is out of school for the summer so when Fred took his morning nap I would go run, bike or swim (triathlon on Saturday). Then during his next nap we would go two doors down to Rachel's pool. They keep it warm. The kids love it. Especially Chloe, she never wanted to leave. My dad would bring Fred over when he woke up.
Jordan took the first three pictures, I took the rest.
I like the sun on Fred's eyelashes.
Tan and green-eyed:
This is the first time Chloe has swam without a life jacket. And she started diving on her own without prompting or instruction. She's pretty good.
I got tired of unsuccessful sunscreen applications and bought them

I think we will be using our community pools a lot this summer but they will have to get used to cooler water.

When are you leaving? We were hoping to catch up with you on Monday.

Chloe looks like a pro! I'm a coach so I notice these things but her toes are even pointed! You should get that girl into diving classes!

I LOVE the b&w pic of Fred! Chloe looks like a S. California beach babe in that last photo.

Such cute pictures. Your kids look like true water bugs! I'm all about rash guards, why bother with sunscreen if you don't have to. I'm just wondering how to get sunscreen under their eyes without screaming!

Looks like some good times!! I think we will be living at my folks this summer. It is our first summer not in year round school. 2 days in and I'm already dying!!!

fergie--i actually thought about inviting you but i knew andy's parents had that pool in their cul-de-sac. i should have though because my sister keeps her pool warm. i also wanted to invite myself to see your house but didn't dare.
next time!

You always have the cutest pictures of your kids. I'll miss seeing your fabulous scrapbook pages. You'll have to post some for us to see. Chloe's diving was very impressive. I've always wanted to be able to dive, but not in this lifetime.
