Life's simple pleasures...a hot day, saltwater and kids...
these things make me smile.
David went swimming in front of our house a few days ago, but the water was too cold to enjoy it very much (it stays in the 50s, Fahrenheit, year-round). He swam out to our neighbor's buoy and back, and he was numb by the time he finished. Gregg rowed alongside of David (with the cats in the rowboat).
Both David and Katie used to have wetsuits, but they outgrew them, and we haven't taken the time to shop for a replacement.
The other day, while visiting my parents, David wanted to swim again, so my dad let him wear his fishing wetsuit.
It looks as if it worked just fine.
During these heavy days, it's nice to see something that floats - something happy & light, like this young man's beautiful smile.
