  • Genivyve Judge, 2, jumps into the arms of her sister, Mykaila, 12, yesterday. The girls were at the pool with their mother, Bethany Judge, and their three sisters Bianca, 7, Anastasia, 4, and Lorelei, who will be 5 months old this Saturday. "This was my pool growing up," Bethany said, while holding Lorelei and watching her four older daughters play in the pool. The Judges spent Tuesday afternoon at the pool because it was the last day of work for the summer for their favorite lifeguard, Emily Reale. The pool at Kimball Park - and all community pools in Concord - close for the season Friday.
