Ice Creams and Swimming

Today the boys received Christmas cards with $5 each in them from their Great Nanna.  After we talked about a few things we could do with the money, they decided it was a good day to go to the pool and have an ice cream.

It rained as we got there and I remembered the feeling of swimming in the rain as a kid, feeling the icy raindrops hitting my head and shoulders, watching the drops splash on the waters surface.  It was lovely to watch the boys discover that its warmer to keep your body underwater away from the freezing rain.  They couldn't decide whether to laugh or cry (so they did a bit of both) but the ice cream fixed everything, as it almost always does.
