Tasty Tennis.

We left town again.
And headed to Indian Wells in Palm Springs, California!
Gotta get me some BNP Paribas Open tennis!

We went with Joanna, Justin, Karen & Jason.
Here we are ready to watch some amazing tennis.

Thought it was a great shot to get Nadal, Wozniacki & Simon
all in one picture on the practice courts.
It's funny how we amateur tennis players think we can hit a ball.
Until we see the pros hit a ball...

I love Caroline Wozniacki.
Even though she has dropped to #4, I still cheer for her.
She is one of the smiliest, friendliest pros
you see out there.

Here we are cooling off with Lemon Ice.
Luckily this year wasn't as hot as last year.
It was so nice to feel the sun.

And yes, I got to see my fave, Roger Federer!
The sight of him does strange things to my pulse.
Do you recognize the cute blonde on the right?
Elizabeth Shue!
Remember her from the 80's?
She is a tennis fan and she also promotes tennis for kids.
She got to meet with him right off the practice court.
Lucky Elizabeth...

Jo & I.
Don't you love the guy photo bombing in the back?

My favorite match to watch was the Bryan Brothers.
They are twins and they happen to be the #1 doubles team
in the world.
Lots of positive energy and lots of fun.

They are so cool.
Last year when we saw them play they stayed until every last
fan had an autograph from them.

And this was the coolest.
After the match, you know how they sign 3 tennis balls and hit them into the stands
for the fans to catch?

That's right...

See you next year Indian Wells!

Wow! This looks like such a fun trip with good friends. I'm going to try to remember your post below because sometimes when you're in the middle of sleep deprivation, teething, tantrums, etc, you wonder what it will be like when they're just a wee older. But I don't want to miss these fun years, either, so thanks for the reminder. :)
