While you cannot see it, or tell it from that smile on his face, Frank had open heart surgery just 10 days before and has an incision down his chest over a foot long! Pretty impressive guy, to say the least.
We took in one of Brooke's softball games. She is a rockstar first baseman! Hadley was already out this morning with her bat and ball. No tee though, she wanted to hit it like Brooke. And that tall handsome blond kid in the back, that is cousin Tyler down for a visit from Alaska. Definitely an Anderson, huh.
We also managed to hit Canal Park while in town. Nostalgic to say the least, it is after all where Kyle & I went on our first date over a decade ago!
We finished out the weekend at the lake. And apparently my parent's pool at the lake has confused Hadley, as she told me in all seriousness as I put her swimsuit on, "But lakes aren't for swimming, they are for fishing!" Despite the chilly water and breezy conditions, she loved it, and even Piper ventured in for a bit. They needed lots of warm towel snuggles though, and were both happy to get them from Paige (who is home for the summer and not in our town right now).
The girls are with cousin Ava here; Ava is about half a year older than Hadley. Aren't they they cutest little buddies! There are several versions of this picture, most of which involve Hadley (accidently) choking Piper! But, as both Auntie Kim and I noted, Pipey did not seem to mind a bit; she must be used to that kind of sisterly love!
