Wordless Wednesday: In search of the perfect cannonball

"Katie...come watch me do a cannonball.""Now it's my turn. Madalyn, move out of the way. Further. Further. Further. Okay...now watch. Watch. Mooommmm. I watched her. Make her watch me.""You don't do it like that. Watch me. You have to hold your legs.""My turn again. And I can do my cannonball however I want.""No. Like this.""Let's do it together..."

SKELLER said...

:-)

Bobbi said...

Wow - great action photos!

Kat said...

CindySue--Have you found the house you are looking for? And my neighbor? Mysterious. Maybe I can get pictures...

Susan--Oh...all those instructions also included ones for me. "Mom...stand there. Take my picture. Did you get it? Do you want me to do it again?"

Bobbi--Thanks. Love my camera!

Paula said...

Wow, thanks for sharing you vacation photos. I feel like I've been looking at Coastal Living magazine. The beach is truly a slice of heaven on earth!

I also have the "Hold my nose or hold my legs" dilemma when it comes to cannonballs. Sadly, I choose not drowning over not looking like an idiot. That's the story of my life.

Karen said...

Love the photos. Looks as though they are having heaps of fun!!!

Lisawa said...

Woohoo!! The last photo and the child on the right.... shows excellent form and even has a huge grin.... *√ú* The only thing missing is the splash!

Summer fun!

Angie said...

Looks like you guys are suffering pretty badly there. LOL! Glad to know that much fun is being had! And yes, no knock on your door last night. Didn't have enough gas money. :-) So, I'll just relish in my WW pics and dream of our trip next summer...

There's just nothing like a big pool in summer!

Loved doing cannonballs as a kid, and as an adult. It's the only way to get in the pool without anyone really seeing you for any length of time in your swimsuit - out of water. I make a mad dash from the house and a lot of commotion to distract everyone around me. They don't know what's going on, and I get to be in the water without scrutiny of my (weight obsessed) sister-in-law. :-0 Cannonballs, are a good thing!

Even Doug is big into the cannonballs. Just a kid at heart, for sure.

Yeah, Matt especially wants to make sure I get the perfect pool picture. He insists on looking at it almost immediately, and then he lets me know if his hair looked cool enough...or else I can't share it. Sheesh.

Becky said...

Looks like so much fun!
So refreshing.
My pool is above ground, so there's no cannonballs.
It's still refreshing.

There's nothing better than practicing canonballs. Cody used to have me watch (and score) his cannonballs for hours on end.

And at least they're not trying belly-flops ;D

BTW, I'm wanting to learn Latin. Can you recommend some good resources?? Thanks!
