Karl is helping Austin learn to swim. Austin's form is improving. Too bad his dad can't see it from the water splashing in his eyes. lol
Jessica is not able to get clear into the water. She gets extremely "blue" when she does. It's not fun at all because she can't breathe and gets sick... so she has to be content sitting by the side with her feet in the water. Even then she got "blue" pretty quickly. When it was time for her to get out, her grandpa brought some chairs for us to sit on and we all (grandparents included) sat by the pool and enjoyed the boys having their fun.
Brandon getting ready to jump into the pool.
He made a pretty good splash!
We went to watch the fireworks. Jess and I hanging out waiting for them to start.
We weren't able to get very close to the fireworks but we were able to see them ok. My oldest son, Justen, helped me figure out how to set my camera so the shutter would stay open longer. I experimented with the settings and moving the camera around and I got some pretty interesting shots! I had to zoom in to get these shots (or cropped them) but I am pretty happy with how they turned out. I hope you enjoy them!
