Wordful Wednesday-Chasing Balls

*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can't seem keep our mouths shut about it(them). If you'd like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll. Feel free to "capture" my 7 Clown Circus button (below and on the left) or simply hyperlink to my site, and be sure to add yourself to Mr. Linky. Thanks for playing along!

LINK TITLE


My kids *HEART* "tennising".

Just in case you are wondering, that's a real word. Tennising.

At least in my household.

I've got some amazing ball chasers.

That I do.





Come out, come out, where ever you are.....
Yes, I am talking to you, Mr. Linky.
(I'm doing my best to find out why Mr. Linky is being shy.....when I figure it out, I'll be sure to tell him he MUST make an appearance. Thanks for your patience, and your willingness to come back by to link up!)


UPDATE: Mr. Linky was still being shy so I dumped him for MckLinky. I'm pretty sure he was jealous because he finally showed up. Now the choice is yours. :)

Awesome pictures. Lil' D started tennis this summer. He loves it, and his Spongebob racket. I have been playing since I was a kid. I look forward to the future when we can play each other. Have a wonderful day and take care. I will be returning for Mr. Linky.

Kacey R. said...

Great pictures as always! I'll be back to link up. Mr. Linky WHERE ARE YOU? ;D

Scott said...

I am impressed. Everything I know about tennis I learned from wii. And what I know isn't that impressive. They look adorable!

I'll keep checking back for mr linky to make his appearance!

Aunt Julie said...

I'll comment now, and then come back and link up later, OK? Uncle Lynn and two of our boys are all awesome tennis players. Shark Boy even played all 4 years on the high school tennis team. We're trying to encourage Soccer Boy to take up the sport, but he's more interested in, well, you know...soccer!

Your kids do love tennising! Great photos.

Have you considered MckLinky? It might be worth a try if Mr Linky is giving you troubles.

As far as your kids are concerned, I see future tennis stars. :)

Marrdy said...

Such fun! I always wanted to play tennis and wanted my kids to also. Alas we will live through your kids!

Those are such great pictures!

Genny said...

We have tennis courts around the corner from our house and your pictures made me want to load the kids up and take them out there! (I guess I'll have to wait until after my knee brace is off...lol)

Hey, I totally get "tennising". I just set my alarm for VERY early in the AM to go captain my ladies tennis team. My husband is a tennis coach and my daughter's first toy was a tennis ball and she's only 1 and has her own racket. We are a "tennising" family.

Nice to meet a another!

And Misterlinky was shy for me too. Something's up.

Lady Di said...

Very cute pictures. I played tennis in college...Jr. college, but still college none the less. Thanks for stopping by and reading my TT to my poor 'burb. In all seriousness, I am so grateful for all the little miracles that kept me safe that day. Take care.

JamericanSpice said...

Every time I see this game or just photos, it reminds me how much I'd love to play!

Love the photos of the little ones with their rackets!

Daddydayone said...

I want to play!!!!!!!

Lindsay said...

ohhhh - tennis is the best!!! Isn't it too HOT there though?? :-)

Kekibird said...

So cute! I loved tennis lessons during the summer time.

scrappysue said...

mr klinky is more high maintenance, but that ain't always a bad thing! tennis says summer. coming home from work in the dark - that yells winter, but i'm totally loving your tennising shots

Hazel said...

I see future tennis stars! And with the first photo I get more meaning with the phrase "pretty in pink" Happy Wednesday!

Tina said...

your daughter looks pretty in pink. love her matching racket

Kelly said...

What a great way to keep your kids active and entertained. I love the pink outfit in the first picture. I didn't think red hair and pink went together but she can pull it off

Itajeff @Something To Share said...

what a great and fun activity for them.
Happy WW

Lots of luv,
Ita

Mariposa said...

Cute pictures. Oh how I miss playing tennis games. ;-)

blueviolet said...

Tennis is such a great sport! They look super cute out there.

Kim said...

What great shots!! I can't wait to get my little ones out on the court one day.. I haven't played in years but it is so much fun!

Renée aka Mekhismom said...

The photos are great! Look at your kids go. They look like they can teach me a thing or two about tennis - not too difficult since I don't know how to play!

Sara said...

Great Pictures! They look like professionals out there!

Susie said...

That looks like great fun:-)

Whimsical Creations said...

Love seeing those future Andy Roddick's running around! I particularly love the shot of your oldest--she's so beautiful and getting so grown up!

Blessings~

Octamom said...

Okay, wait...I don't think that's your oldest--I think that's #2--that red hair--just adorable (like her mama)!

Blessings!

kisatrtle said...

Sorry for the long link up - I forgot to delete info for my giveaway link that I did yesterday!

Mama Zen said...

Oh, how cute!

Kathleen W. said...

Oh, that is my husband's dream, to have our son play tennis with him (or at least be a ball chaser). As usual, your tykes are so adorable.

cat said...

I never got the hang of tennis - no ball sense here. Wonder if the kids will?

LifeAtTheCircus.com said...

Sorry, I thought I commented earlier, but my computer was having probs and it didn't work.

Also, sorry I seem to have accidentally linked up on both lists here...oops...

now for my comment... love those tennis pics!! they look adorable. and i am so impressed that they are playing so young!

Amy said...

Those are the cutest ball catchers I have seen...

Threeundertwo said...

Yay for tennis! Especially if there are willing siblings to play with!

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

"Tennising" - I love it!! They look like naturals! :)

Happy WW! :)

ChefDruck said...

Great pictures! My little monsters will start tennising next week. I'm so excited!

Hoosier Homemade said...

What fun! Thanks for hosting!

Justine said...

Tennis is one of the sports I could just never get into. Maybe because running back and forth and sweating are involved. Oh wait, that'd be just about all sports.

Justine :o )

Sweet Annabelle said...

We LOVE to play at tennis. Play AT it is about as good as it gets, though!

Mel Fraase said...

So fun! I wish there were more summer sports in our little town for the kids to get into!!

Tiaras said...

my son just told me the other day that he wanted to play tennis?? I was surprised - I thought he was my baseball prince!

Sue said...

Great shots! Tennis is fun.

Sherry at EX Marks the Spot said...

Oh, to have that childhood energy and those carefree days!!!

My WW is rather embarrassing today. It reflects on my ineptitude in motherhood and domesticity.

♥spoiled mommy♥ said...

So cute!!
And what a great sport for a workout, gosh we used to be so sore after playing when the kids were younger. Have to do that again!

Brenda said...

My kids loved tennis too until at 12, my daughter was hit with a racquet on her mouth full of braces. . . my her dad, playing doubles.

They are all glad they learned because its a fun grown up sport if you already feel comfortable with it. Now dad regularly throws out his shoulder playing with son :)

Carissa(GoodnCrazy) said...

Mine beg us to go play tennis! I didn't even think to take a camera!! I'm sooo copying!

Sent you an email :)

April said...

I was never any good a tennis. Not many courts around here to practice.

Tammy said...

Adorable!!!

mommaof4wife2r said...

Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting said...

They are so cute tennising :)

Live.Love.Eat said...

They can come chase my tennis balls. That's my least favorite part, especially since I don't wear the balls in my shorts like lotsa people do.

BookLady said...

Tennis! Awesome sport! My WW today is about baseball, again! :)

Megan said...

How cute are they? Adorable! =)

Erica said...

Looks like so much fun. :)

Shop with Me Mama said...

Casey's trio said...

What great exercise! We'd have to follow that up with a run through the sprinklers:)

Sheila said...

Great pictures, happy WW!

Kristin said...

Emma's pink outfit is seriously sooo darling. I always wanted to play tennis, just for the clothes. I'm coming next week for Brooke's baby blessing. Hope to have time to come see your new pad.

sheila said...

What an awesome sport for kids! My husband played as a kid and was very very good.

Jaysi said...

Luke loves to play tennis too! Such a great sport for little ones. Talk about eye hand coordination!

girlytwins said...

So cute. I bet you have such a great time just watching them hit and chase balls :)

Rebecca said...

That first picture takes the cake. Such a little darling prep.

Stacy said...

Your pictures are beautiful! My boys and I absolutely love the beach too. We live in the Northeast, so the ocean tends to be a bit cold, but I still love it there!
