Time sure does fly! Our summer came and went in the blink of an eye and everything seemed to have been done within a 4 week period! LOL
The start to our summer was nice and mellow, swim classes in the morning, swim team session in the afternoons. Dublin had to be at his swim team session at a particular time which narrowed where we could be for our field trips. Almost everything I had was going to put us far from home and we couldn’t be stuck in traffic L.A. traffic nor did I want a wiped out kid. Our outing options narrowed QUICKLY and my list from Planning Summer Break went out the door.
We did manage to go to the park twice! Thanks to my SIL (sister-in-law) Alba and my friend, Jodi. Don’t worry though we did manage to get out of the house and drive around town, mainly for business but we were out and I tried to make it fun.
Traveling and Swim Meets
In between swim and and business we did manage some traveling. Sean and I took a weekender to North Carolina to visit friends and eat lots of BBQ. BBQ was AMAZING and would definitely fly out just for that.
Right after that we were home for a few days to get us to our first swim meet. The swim meet was part of the LA 84 Foundation, they are recognized nationally for supporting youth sport programs. Dublin was given a scholarship to train and attend the meets for free. If we miss the meets he’s not invited back, period! For our first event he got 3rd in Butterfly, 5th in Freestyle and 6th in Backstroke, all events were 25 yards so they were a good starter.
A few days later we’re off on a family and friends vacation to Acapulco! Couldn’t beat the price we got, $420 for 8 days in a private resort. This was not per day, full week! However, this vacation was right before a 2nd swim meet that Dublin had so he had to practice in the pool while guests were enjoying their time. Dublin practiced for an hour everyday before he could have his fun time. Enjoy the photos of our trip below.
