CWG - Diving!

On Wednesday we went to see Diving at the Commonwealth Games. The Swimming arena is pretty close to a McDonald's that serves breakfast, so we met up with Joe, Amberley and Kristin before the games started :) This isn't a good picture, but I liked it :) Aashini gets jealous when Diya gets in a high chair now and wants to be in one too :)
Here we are posing like the girls behind us... well, attempting to pose like those girls :) haha!
On this day we saw diving! We saw women's 3 meter springboard and men's 10 meter platform. None of my pictures from this arena are great, but it's fun to see the different poses you can catch divers in with a camera :) This one isn't that funny, but it's one of the only ones I had of the women - we couldn't see them as well and the springboard wasn't as exciting :)
I thought Diya looked so big sitting in her chair :)
Platform diving was crazy! They did some crazy stuff!!
My attempt at getting us all in one picture :)
The stadium is really nice! The cheap seats (which we were in for this one) were really uncomfortable though! The seats were high off the ground, so only my toes touched the ground! It sort of cut off my circulation, but it was fun :)
If you look really fast at the picture below, you'll miss the guy in it :) He's super horizontal!
This is a bad picture, but I just had to post it! Look how close his head is to the platform!! Amberley told me that the closer they are to the platform, the better scores they'll get because their form is better. Crazy!
Look at this guy!
Here's a silver medal up close! I'll have a fun post on this medal later :) Very cool :)
...and a family picture from the day :) haha!

Diving is the best. I'm so jealous that you got to go. I've really enjoyed reading your CWG posts.
