Swimming Is My Favorite Way to Move!

Swimming: my favorite way to stay active!

There is no better place than in water. In a pool, a beach, a hotel, a resort, a lake, an ocean – I’ll even take a sprinkler!

For every day, we invested in a backyard pool…takes up the whole yard!

Our backyard is an oasis and you’ll find me back there all weekend as long as it’s sunny.

We have a pergola on the patio next to the pool, there we BBQ and visit with friends, family, neighbors, church members, and former students. Throw in some pool toys for a full day of fun!

When we travel, the beach is always a priority, but pools are nice too 🙂

Over the 8 years we’ve had this pool, it’s been fun to have different groups of people help us build it every year. We’re happy to support local families teach their children hard work and high school students earn $$ for their band programs. We’ve also hosted church groups and allow our neighbors to swim.

Sometimes there are fun local events, like the Black Light swim and slide park – that was a blast!

Even though I’m on the treadmill 5 days a week, I’ll swim any chance I get!
