Every year the kids and dads (cough cough) like to participate in the "Polar Bear Plunge". "Polar Bear" meaning the water is FREEZING cold! The temperature outside was no more than 50 degrees. Our numbers were fewer this year due to colds, "big chicken" syndrome, and the basic lack of desire. These boys and girls braved the cold water with enthusiasm and a smile on their faces. My favorite part of the video is after the countdown, when they all look at each other, reconsider, and then are sucked in by the peer pressure.
