Backyard Ball

It is so hot during the day that it is almost unbearable to play outside (unless you are in the water). So, one evening Brad told Laci she had softball practice in the backyard. She and Meg got their gear on and we spend a couple hours just playing softball.
Brynn played outside also. She even ate a little dirt! haha

If you are wondering what is on their faces, let me explain. I'm not sure how long they have been around, certainly not when I played. But, they are called game faces. The girls wear them in the field while they are on defense. They are not recquired and not everyone wears them. And, I was totally against them at first saying I don't want my girls to be sissys! They need to learn to be tough. Then, I saw how girls around here hit the ball and I saw a little girl take a ball to the face and decided it was in the best interest of my girl's faces to invest in these contraptions!
I love the picture above because it shows how totally differently Laci and Megan are built!
Sweet little softball girls!
