Chilly Water

Sometimes crazy things can become family traditions.

Jumping in cold water goes way back with us. We get 'em started young. Always plenty of healthy competition and ribbing.

I married into this family. And I love it. But sometimes I just watch and laugh. =) And take pictures.

Here's one of the youngest, jumping into the Columbia River in January. Very nice form. A little nervous to start. Understandably.

And here is the intrepid jumper, running for the hot tub.

Wouldn't want to be outdone by a young here he goes!!

They're just getting "warmed up". Polar Bear Swim tonight.
