Trimommy and Sons: Adventures in Orlando

I'm in Orlando with the boys and having a spectacular time.  I just finished up my first day of USAT Level I coaching training, and my brain is chock-full of knowledge and my heart is chock-full of inspiration.  I'll have a full report at the end of the weekend, but first let me tell you about our day yesterday.

We arrived on Wednesday night, and this is how I began my day on Thursday morning:

A sunrise swim at Lucky's Lake Swim.  Lucky has a beautiful home right on this lake, and opens his property up 6 mornings a week for anyone who wants to come out for an open water swim.  If you live in the Orlando area, or are visiting, I highly recommend stopping by.  I did two laps of the lake for a beautifully warm, no-wetsuit, 2,000 meter first open water swim of the season.  I felt strong, and am very glad I went. I got to sign the wall at Lucky's, and he even got out his props for a picture.  Thanks, Lucky!!

I also met a fellow trimommy blogger, Kate (Going the Distance).  I actually first learned about Lucky's Lake Swims from her blog, so when I realized I was staying about 6 miles from the lake, I shot her a message asking if she wanted to meet up!  She switched her swim workout to Thursday, and we had a great time chatting before and after the swim.  As she said to me..."Trimommies Unite!"

After my swim, I headed to Sea World with my parents, my sister, and the boys.  We had a wonderful time.  I'm not sure if I had more fun watching the dolphins and Shamu, or more fun watching the boys watching the dolphins and Shamu.  It was a great day.  Enjoy the photos!

I got to put my new waterproof camera to work!

This is Ryan right after we finished the Journey to Atlantis ride.  Basically a 
roller coaster that goes through water.  He loved it!

  1. Looks like you are having a great time! Looking out the window at gray skies I'm wishing I was back in FL. Can't wait to hear your full report!

  2. It looks like you're having a great time! I think it's awesome that Lucky opens up the lake for people to swim! And, what a cool wall!

  3. I just checked out Lucky's website. The FAQ's were hysterical!

  4. So glad to meet you this weekend!!! I'll see you at Rev3 in a few weeks!!


Woo-hoo!! I want to hear from you!
