some pretty frocks
Speaking of men...here is a fun story for you. OK, I have mentioned how hot it is here, right? Well, most of those dresses up above have been stitched on at the pool. There are 2 pools on base. One is kinda a women and children sort of pool. I really like it. My friends and I sit and chat while the kids swim around. There is also a more serious pool...a lap swimming pool. It is deep and my little guy is not the hottest swimmer in town so we don't go there very often. Well, the other day we did go after I collected my middle man from camp. We got there and were swimming around when I noticed the mood at the pool suddenly got kinda quiet and serious. I looked around and noticed men coming out of the locker room. Not just men (this is a base afterall and men are all over the place, but these were MEN) each one was bigger and more powerful than the one before. They were gorgeous. Magnificent specimens. Emma swam up to me and said "Mom...it is like a horse show" What do you mean, Emma? "Well, It is like a horse show, but with men." You are right, darling.
It was Marine Water PT time. Our marines are pretty nice to look at. Just so you know...I am sure they are great in combat too...but I really can't judge that. They are good swimmers though.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
