Jamestown v. Prairie Home. It was the game of the season! A real nail biter. And we were actually able to get tickets. Unbelievable!
The star players were the unlikely pair of Anna and Allen. And they just happened to be relatives. Inseparable, best buds type relatives.
They also happened to be my grandkids. My son, Greg, helps coach Allen’s team. And let me tell you – watching a t-ball game of age 5 – 7 year olds is absolutely hands down the best time to be had. It is a riot!
When I took this picture of Anna, I didn’t realize Allen was on first base for the opposing team. I almost got him in the picture too. Darn fence messed me up. I was intent on framing Anna’s serious face as she got ready to steal to second to notice anything else.I asked Allen after the game what they said to each other. He told me, I said “Hi, Anna” and she said “I’ve been watching for you”.
Absolutely NOTHING is going to get by this kid! Well, except maybe every ball that came his way. Allen would stand like this looking good but only a few times did he try to retrieve a ball and then only when we yelled “ALLEN”!
My sweet little Anna Rose looks absolutely “don’t mess with me” tough here.
Pssst Anna… Allen is stealing base behind you. You do see him, right? That’s Greg barking orders to those poor tykes.A little fatherly advice never hurts.
Oh, and you ask what our little Reagan was doing during this hotly contested game? The only thing a year and 1/2 year old should do. She was eating and feeding her new friend gold fish crackers.
I think she had decided she was done sharing in this picture.
Reagan finally realized I was clicking the camera and moved in for a close-up. Those big brown eyes are killers. Irresistible!
