Men’s Synchronized Swimming and a MUST SEE Video

I detailed my death defying vacation last week in this post, but as I also mentioned, the trip started off fantastically. Since I lived to blog another day, I wanted to share with you one of the more hilarious moments from that week.

Two of the most ridiculous-in-a-great-way dudes in my family are Aaron and Bryce. They are brother-in-laws, bonded by not just marriage, but also a mutual love for each other and for all things goofball. Aaron lives in California now, and Bryce in Wisconsin, so when the two are reunited it’s pretty special. And not just special for them, but special for all of us given the opportunity to witness their antics.

The weather was especially pleasant during our trip, so the family decided to walk down to the neighborhood pool. The point of the excursion was to relax and let the kiddos blow off some steam.

Now, you’re not supposed to leave children unattended in a public pool. It’s irresponsible and anything could happen. But while the rest of us were carefully monitoring the 11-and-unders in our group, we neglected to tend the two older children. While our heads were turned, THIS happened:

A couple of notes about that video:

  1. You are going to want to watch both video clips in this post before Aaron and Bryce catch on and badger me to remove them.
  2. That is totally me you hear cackling like a fool in the background.

Because I can’t ever leave well enough alone, and because I had nothing to do but recover from my near death experiences, I decided to punch up the video just a tad. It’s pretty spectacular, if I do say so myself. Make sure to hang in there for the slow-motion grand finale.

Needless to say, the family is very proud of our Olympic hopefuls.

Do you have any summertime silliness to share? Whether it’s a link to a photo, video or blog entry, feel free to post them below.

Until next time, just keep swimming!
