What's for Dinner? Night 3

I completely forgot to post this last night!

We had a picnic dinner at the pool.  The weather has finally warmed back up into the upper 80s/lower 90s...perfect swimming weather!  Unfortunately, the pool changed its hours this week with the start of school, and it is only open in the evenings now.  We are trying to make the most of the last days at the pool, so our whole family headed out for an evening at the pool.
 For dinner, rather than eat the overpriced and not very good concession stand food, I packed lunch meat sandwiches, veggie chips, blueberries, and oranges.  I made chocolate chip mookies for dessert.

Audrey has been doing really well in the water, and she is starting to swim on her own underwater.  That's one of the reasons why I want to get to the pool as much as she can get as much practice as possible!  She's made so much progress this summer, I'm afraid she is going to forget everything she learned during the nine month break til next swim season. 

Here is Audrey showing her underwater swim.  After I recorded this video, she started swimming for longer stretches underwater by herself.  She can just about swim all the way across the width of the medium pool by herself without touching the bottom.  Considering that just a few weeks ago she wouldn't even put her face in the water, she has made a lot of progress in a short amount of time!
