After my grandmother's funeral and memorial service we went to Chris' house so the girls could swim. They don't have access to a diving board often so it was a treat to get to do tricks off it. Delaney had been shown how to do a handstand into the water at the party at Hyco but Macy never tried it. Once Riley showed her how to get up into it, she started doing it over and over. Here she is doing an amazing handstand. Samantha would be proud. I did some cropping, and adjustments to make her stand out from the background. (ISO 100, 70mm, f2.8, 1/1000)
At one point, she did one pretty well and asked me how it was. I told her it was good and asked her if she wanted to make it better. She asked how and I told her to keep her feet together the whole time. She fussed at me but this was her very next attempt. Please forgive the slight blur and over exposure.
Blake is a phenomenal big brother, esp to Ragan. This was a spectacular, albeit, slightly dangerous "trick" the 2 of them do:
Here are the rest of the pics from the pool:
My cousins from NJ came up for Nana's memorial and stayed for the night. Here's everyone having a picnic dinner out front.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
