Yesterday was the polar bear plunge here at the beach. 20,000 people were there to take a dip in the Atlantic! The water was 39 degrees!! Here's some photos:

This is how many people were on the beach









This is the girls running in




And running back out again - my dd is the one in the gray argyle bikini top






They were crazy - but they had fun. I am amazed at how many people took a dip in the ocean!!!


And a team shot after the fact (my dd is standing up with a gray argyle bikini top)

I'm shivering for them! Wow!

I don't even go in a lake in the summer, unless it's about 85 degrees in the water , I'm a wimp. Kudos to her!

Was it a fundraiser?

My Daughter wants to do it here in a week or so but I am not sure. She can't even get in the river when it's 100 outside LOL.

Congrat's to your DD and all the other girls!

LOL...I can't wait to tell her that you said that Jess! She is actually self conscious of her "six pack" and thinks it looks manly on her. All that swimming year round and tons of exercise to stay in shape for swimming and she is actually very muscular for such a skinny girl. I wish I had such problems and no one would ever comment on my six pack.....LOL I don't have one.....

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
