Summer in Northern Virginia is a mixed blessing for this Canadian.  While my family had snow June 1st, I was suffering through a week on 40 degree weather (Celsius that is ~ 104 F), I'm really not sure who had it worse.  But the nice thing about living here is that when it's warm there are so many nice pools where we can cool off in.  Our favorite at the moment is the Watermine.  It's the perfect waterpark for young kids and we go fairly often.

Our last trip gave us the opportunity to try out our new water camera, while we still need to do a bit more testing, like taking pictures under water, but it did do a good job of getting nice a wet.

What are you doing to me?
This sure is fun
Family floating time 
Watch out for the waterfall
Again, again
Yuck a frog swallowed me

NO! He is not peeing
