Slideshow of the swim

Well I don't know about everyone else but I am glad it is over. I have thought about this every day/week for a year. Here is a slide show of the pictures I got of the swim. There will be a future post about the rest of the trip.

Sharkfest pictures on photobucket

Yeah! I got the pictures from our trip uploaded to photobucket for anyone that wants to take a peeksie.

The sign in is thebutlerbunch
and the password is butler

I think there is around 100 pictures. I will either put together a slideshow or something for a future post (soon) but wanted to give you the opportunity for you to get a copy of any pictures you wanted or just to see what we ended up with.

For those who knew I was missing my camera, we found it behind the dresser. It must have fallen there with all the junk I kept piling on top of the dresser. Thank goodness Mark had the piece of mind to look 1 more time (after checking twice). I mean the camera would have been devastating enough, but to lose all those pictures would have been heartbreaking.

A Quick Shark Fest Update...

So we just came back from deep lake...we being Tracey, Lorri, and family. In the beginning Lorri was saying how she was going to drowned but they still proceeded. Lorri and Brandon started by inching themselves into the water, later being threatened by my dad if they wouldn't just get in. So they the beginning they were going on and on how cold it was, Brandon being the worst haha, but later they returned feeling great. GO SHARK FEST SWIMMERS!! So how is everyone else's swimming going?

Sharkfest is looming in the near future!

Can you believe that sharkfest is soooo close. I will be glad when it is all over. In fact I spend a lot of my time envisioning myself getting out of the water, or is it crawling, after I am done and knowing that I did it. But I will have to say, the whole shark thing is still haunting me. So I thought I would try and make light of it. So here are a few photos to keep us all in good spirits.

This is the information that Dave posted in his email link about the odds of being attacked by a shark.

What are the odds of being attacked by a shark?


Scared to go swimming? Jaws getting to you?
Don't fret, the odds of being attacked by a shark are pretty slim, about 1 in 65,000,000.
In you live in America your chances do increase, not because sharks prefer American food, but because American have good access to the Oceans.
The odds of being involved in a shark in America attack go up to 1 in 10,000,000.

Happy swimming, but watch out for the flying piranhas.

But I beg to differ. If you are swimming in shark infested waters, doesn't your odds increase by A LOT? And what about his photo? What are the odds of this happening?

And here is the thing I don't get...
You would think Tracey would take this more seriously after already having one run in with a shark.

And last but not least, some helpful information in case "one" of us gets attacked by a shark...

Well enough freaking myself out about sharks tonight. Hope everyone is "excited" as I am.
