Polar Plunge

OK… 53F … windy… gathering storm… dark clouds… and the embassy is opening the pool for the season. This winter won’t give up! It was COLD out there.

As soon as they had jumped in, everybody had to get out because the storm came in, thunder and lightning and pouring rain.

Why go through all this?

Free Ice Cream!!! (coupon) and a rubber bracelet! :) What would you do for a klondike bar? (or just generic ice cream…)

And for mom, hot mulled wine :)  Not only was the swimming rained out, the BBQ had to be moved inside too. That’s ok though, we went home and turned the radiators back on!

Fun, Fun, Fun !
I see in one of the pictures that the pool is 10 feet deep!!! How awesome!

Looks like fun! And ice cream is worth a lot. ;) It's been really cold here in Guatemala at night, too. I keep wishing we'd installed a fireplace when we built the place.

Oh, that sounds cold but the kids seem to have fun!!! And yes kids would do lot's of things for free ice cream...
