Comments for San Diego Trip Day 2: South Pasadena

--> San Diego Trip Day 2: South Pasadena: 05/31/07

Sean from last November but doing the same thing he did on this tripBefore heading down to San Diego for dinner with my mother, we had a well needed "hang around" day with Ian's family. I mostly tried to sleep, having failed to fall asleep until dawn (after going to bed at two). The kids had gotten up early even though they too had gotten to bed at two. Although they were tired, they were in good spirits.

Sean had fun helping Charlie clean the pool with the robot and the various scoopers and brushes. Afterwards they turned on the hot tub and stuck their feet into it. While getting out of the hot tub, Sean fell into the deep end of the pool. Although I've only given him one swimming lesson which hadn't appeared to go well, Sean remembered everything I'd taught him. He managed to stay calm, dog paddle back to the edge of the pool and pull himself out before we had a chance to react. He saved himself in seconds!
