This is what you get when a photographer with a good eye and a nice camera is on deck at a swim meet... incredible shots!

Clara was not pleased with most of her times this past weekend but, how can you not be impressed by the effort?!?  It was a tough realization that you won't always post personal bests at competitions. Though, she's a stubborn one and I don't doubt she's concocting plans to somehow get faster.  In fact, she did mention she wanted to start doing "musculation" at home just last night.

40th Birthday morning after

Bourbon tasting success!
Marc's party involved a whole lot of bourbon and delicious Southern BBQ snacks (Ann Marie's concoctions)  The party was not a surprise but the guests and theme were.  Clara baked her famous chocolate quinoa cake and helped by making some fantastic party decorations.  

Yes, it is a bacon duct tape sign.

Mixing it up!

Up at 6am both Saturday and Sunday to get Clara to her first AA swim meet.  Home by 2pm both days BUT upon arrival home today, Marc discovered that our swimmer had made it to the finals of the 50m backstroke so.... back to the pool for 4pm warm up and home now... 8pm.  Long but very wonderful day.  Clara put down 3 more personal bests and even swam her final half a second faster than she'd swum it in preliminaries!  We are so impressed.

Clara in lane 8. She is wearing a red cap, the second swimmer from the bottom of the frame.

Did you know yesterday was "Treat yourself day"?  It was so proclaimed by Clara and Leo who celebrated by going to the grocery store on their own and buying themselves some favourite treats.... whipped cream, nutella, licorice and root beer!
