When we were growing up, my cousin and I spent every summer together. Every summer included trips to the Rosendale Recreation Center to swim with our Grandpa. Grandpa got a season pass and took us swimming regularly every year. When we were really little, we had to stay in the shallow end of the pool, but by the time we were 10 we passed the swim test and graduated to the deeper end. The deeper end had the water slide and we were so excited to finally get to use it. We also loved laying out on our towels and getting ice cream at the snack bar. One thing we could always depend on is that Grandpa would have his camera to capture some of our fun.
