So... this weekend get-away has suddenly become the highlight of our Christmas season. In addition to watching our eldest compete, we'll get to enjoy a tour of Hubby's old stompin' grounds. The Annapolis Boat Parade is also scheduled for this same weekend, so there should be tons of exciting activity around the harbor. Of course, the boys don't care about that one bit; they're just thrilled to be staying in a hotel (it doesn't take much to impress my crew)! So, swimming, boats, a tour or two... and the grandparents are all coming with us! We may even get to catch up with a few extended family members who live in that neck of the woods. It should be oodles of fun, and to think... Bub will get to swim in the same pool his daddy swam in all those years ago (face it, Hubby... you're getting old!).
In the meantime, we'll keep moving forward-- schoolwork, housework, swim practice and the like. But soon, very soon, we'll hit the road and have a grand time away. We're all looking forward to tons of excellent swimming (last year, Katie Hoff competed and Mr. Phelps himself has made an appearance on more than one occasion) and time together as a family. And who knows, we may even see a famous face or two!!
