Playing in the water, whether it be the ocean, a lake, or a pool, has been a staple in my family’s life. We’ve surrounded ourselves with it and made the best memories of our life in it. My oldest brother, Marshall, owns a pool and a regular afternoon was transformed into a day of laughter and fun by taking advantage of the pool and our love of water.
Marshall’s version of holding his breath might be different from mine, or any other normal person’s, but it’s funny to look at and even funnier to remember.
Barry, my 17 year old brother, made hanging out under water look effortless. It wasn’t until I joined him that priceless expressions emerged.
As a life with my daughter begins, I look back on years of family fun and friendship. I look forward to teaching Athena how to swim and sharing a lifetime of water adventures with her, my husband, and the rest of our beautiful family. Now, I just need to figure out waterproof diapers.
