County qualifiers' dinner

Last night was the dinner for the swimmers that qualified for county.  I opted to not go, but instead stay back with Tyler and Mister.  We ate at Wendy's with a coupon and had a great time.  

Then Heidi called and asked me to pick up Blake because he wasn't feeling well.

When I got there with my big SLR, Blake seemed fine.  So I took some pictures with the flash.  No one wants to carry the big camera with the big flash, but for indoors and daytime fill-flash, it takes the best pictures.  Here's coach Nikki.

Kira made friends with the older girls

Scott looking all dapper but wouldn't smile for the camera because he'd just eaten some salsa he thought was too hot.

Kiko and Christian

The Cejas

This was a shot that the SLR executed well.  The sun was behind the subjects and I forced the flash.  See?  Everyone's eyes are open and they are smiling.  You can still see the sunset.

Scott had a good season.

So now we just have the county meet this weekend and the season's over.  Okay, I gotta have a nap.  I was up late doing the wash, the dishes, and the trash.

City meet

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (even though we didn't go on sunday) was City meet at Cowell in Concord.  Mister and I went out on Friday for a little bit to watch but most of the action happened on Saturday.

Cool pic with the 75-300 lens.  I like that you can do these candid shots from far away.  

Parent's relay.  Neal and I were on the "C" relay.  I did butterfly.  We got fourth place.  I was just happy that my goggles stayed on and I didn't burn out.  Several ex-olympians were on the "A" relay.

The "B" relay beat us.  Marcus and Brook.

Relay consisting of Scott, Colton, Jacob, and Kyle, broke the pool record.  Nice.
