Our Hero

This past weekend, my husband dove into a tank of sharks and saved TWO people from drowning. Seriously, I couldn't make this up if I tried... We went to a water park as a family and some of us were about to enter the Shark Reef when Matt noticed one of the park patrons struggling in the water. A small female lifeguard went to help and the drowning person decided that the best way to get rescued was to pull her under with him. Matt saw the whole thing, dove in and rescued both of them. Can't believe that guy! It occurred to us later how dangerous it could have been for him too but we are proud of him!
Matt is pretty humble about the whole thing but he did give Xander the Heimlich maneuver the next day to prove that his lifesaving skills weren't a fluke. There are no photos of the event since we didn't take our camera to the water park but our good friends made this Mr. Incredible award for him when they heard about his adventure. So funny!
