Took me some pictures yesterday

Julia invites the waitress to come swimming with us after lunch, explaining that she can borrow a bathing suit from Robin or Alex.

Alex finds this endearing.

But really, it's all about Robin. Just ask her.

The grownups order coffee.

Robin is jollied out of a momentary snit.

Julia is harder to jolly.

We head over to the municipal swimming pool to find a couple hundred black-beshirted adolescents, lined up around the block for a concert that will take place six hours later.

Julia climbs a pole

Alex and the girls test out the water. It's freezing.

I'm in the mood for closeups today.

Julia gets a hand.

The girls bravely venture forth.

Julia inflates her water wings.

Alex contemplates.

Julia contemplates.

Robin contemplates.

Julia takes a picture.

Jennifer takes a picture.

And another.

Julia wants one of her feet.

We put the camera on the ground.

Julia is tired of the water wings.

She plays with the towel instead.

There's another foot that would make a good picture all on its own.

Alex and Robin sit by the pool.

We get dressed to leave.

The sneakers are cute.

A final closeup.

I am so jealous! It is, I dunno, 35 (?) here today. We have a wood fire going and hubby is out doing the hunter gatherer thing and getting more wood. Not really swimming weather. Enjoy it!

The one titled "Julia takes a picture" needs to be printed on hard copy and framed. It's beautiful. I believe Julia has talent. You are such a handsome family.

Thanks! Although I have to admit I cropped it a bit. Here's the original.

Ooooh, I LOVED your photo essay. One day, when I get my head around the marriage between Flickr and Wordpress, I may have to copy it! Plus, the sunshine warmed me up.
