Tennis Anyone???

While we were in Arizona with Sara's family, it was decided that the two older children, Charlie and Max, would take tennis lessons.  It turned out to be fun for the whole family, with Charlie and Lloyd taking on Quincey and Max for a couple of games after the lessons.

Surprise, AZ has the best public courts we've ever seen.  They played under the lights on beautiful clay courts at a large public facility not far from our home.

Their form wasn't great but after only two lessons I guess that's to be expected.  Hopefully they'll keep at it after they go home to Canada.

Jump and stretch

Quinn figured her job was to gather up all the stray
balls.  It probably would have been easier if
she wasn't holding on to her big stuffed cat.
Just one of the many fun things for the family to do during our winter get-aways.  The snow has finally left Alberta, for the most part, so we won't have to 'escape' for another few months.

In the meantime, we still are waiting for our new granddaughter to make an appearance.  Yesterday was her due date so its gotta happen soon.

Everyone is seeing some action but Elly is having the greatest struggles. Bless her efforts while hanging on to the cat. Love that picture!

What a fun way to spend some precious family time. And any day now sounds like there will be another member of the family too!


Love the picture of your little one holding all those tennis balls. It is priceless.
