Synchronized Swimming

Lauren and Heather were on a competitive synchronized swimming team for a few years. Practices and meets kept me and them very busy. Now Lauren is the head coach at one of the city pools and Heather assists her. Maybe now we'll get the money back from what we spent on lessons over the years.

They designed this swimsuit for their duet routine.

Lauren is the coach.

Putting gelatin in their hair so it will stay stiff and hold up in the water.

She found a fun swim cap and nose plug and couldn't resist.

Circus team costume. They went to regionals with this routine. Only my girls could find a sport with makeup and bling.

What an interesting sport--I've always been intrigued by it, and your girls certainly look like they enjoyed it!

That is so cool! I always loved to watch sychronised swimming growing up. You don't see it too much anymore.
I love all the costumes - WAY fun!

Wow, they look so beautiful! That is truly an amazing sport, they make it look so graceful and elegant yet it must take a lot of strength and endurance!

Money well spent!!
