Diving in The Windy City

Anna had a regional diving meet in Chicago this weekend. We drove eight long hours to get there, made longer by the fact that we couldn't leave until late Friday afternoon; we arrived at our hotel at about 1:00 a.m... yawn! Saturday morning, we went to Navy Pier for lunch and some shopping. This is Anna (on the left) posing with her two teammates and her two coaches.

Little Taylor dove on Saturday afternoon and she did great. Saturday evening we had dinner with my parents, who drove up from Indianapolis to see Anna dive. They treated the whole team to a tasty dinner. Thanks, Mom and Dad!

Anna and Elyse competed on Sunday. Anna placed 29th out of 35 competitors which is really quite good... it was her first big meet and her first meet ever with the tougher standards of USA Diving. She hit all of her dives and just needs a higher degree of difficulty. She's only been diving for one year. It's hard to get decent pictures of diving with my camera, but here she is doing one of her dives. She's the blur in the middle. :)

Swim meets are long but fun. Sounds like Anna is a good swimmer!

I also loved the picture of Bruno! I hope Bruno gets better and lives many more years!

Thinking about that court date coming up!!!
