Swimming is my life

Zoe is the swimmer in the family. When we go to the lake in the summer, she flies out of the car, down the hill and immediately into the water. Forget all the unpacking, bringing in luggage or the fact that everyone with her is still clothed. She is all about the water.

While at the lake, we participate in water sports - skiing, wake-boarding and a little tubing. There is lots of cruising around in the ski boat and pontoon, just for fun. There is even more floating in the lake, consuming copious amounts of adult beverages and talking about whatever strikes our fancy. While we float, Zoe swims. She may be fetching something, or not, it really doesn't matter.

She is O-b-s-e-s-s-e-d. But it makes for sound sleeping at night!

Oh, this makes me want a dog sooo badly. I'm not sure how the cats and the new hubby would like that, though.

My little guy loves to swim too - and you are right - it's so great to have them nice and worn out for a good night's sleep after a swim!
