Grand Slam!

This is day two of our abbreviated time with the grandkids. We have a sports complex behind our house, so when Double D walks the dog back there, he picks up baseballs that have been left behind. I've told him for 18 months that he should just leave them there, but he insisted he was saving them for when the grandkids come to visit. Finally, he got that chance to play baseball with them, and I must say, even though our time in the French Quarter was amazing (well, mostly), our time in the park was pretty special. And everybody hit a home run!

What great fun that must have been...a family baseball game. Even Chance (Did I remember his name right?) got in on the fun. I love his stance in that first shot. These photos will be treasures.

Totally the way to do it...one big deal day and one low-maintenance just hangin' out and havin' fun together. And I bet the kids will have as lasting memories of the second day as they did the planned excursion!
