For the second year in a row we went to the YMCA New Year's Day Polar Bear Swim. I was smart and stayed out of that 50-something degree water (Mama said I was her Teddy Bear :) but Andrey and Daddy did it. We got there late....and have now learned that an 11:00 a.m. Polar Bear Swim on New Year's Day does NOT last long, so get there on time! But, they still let us do it because my Mama told them Andrey came all the way from Russia and would be very disappointed if he didn't get to be a Polar Bear!!!!
After the Polar Bear swim, we went over to see our friends the Culbreath family, and had lunch with them and some other friends. Andrey and Mama went across the street to wish our Ukrainian friends Happy New Year!
