CDF Tennis Tournament 2013 in Williamsburg

One of my first dates with Rob was playing tennis. Date number 4 to be exact:) One day I’ll have to write the story of how I met Rob and our fabulous courtship.

I told Rob I could play tennis. 
And technically, I can play – just not very well. Although this year, I got serious and went to a week long tennis clinic (in the evenings). It was awesome and improved my game (or so I thought).
I needed to improve my game because my kids have all become good little players, and being competitive, I can’t have them always beat me.
Last year Rob introduced “The CDF Tennis Tournament.” He takes these things pretty seriously, as do all the kids. 
He even went and had our own “CDF Open” trophy made.
Like I said, serious business.
We decided to have the tournament every summer on one of our summer vacations. The kids have really taken to this and there is a lot of talk in the weeks leading up over who will win the CDF cup.
Last year, it was Gabe and Zach (you can read about it here). They were the team to beat  (or so they thought)!

This year, the winners were Rob and Josh.
It was a very close game against Zach and Gabe in the finals.
Zandra, Sam and I were taken out early on, but a valiant effort by all!

The teams (and the CDF Open trophy)
The warm-up

The matches

The Champions

Next year, I will beat them all.

And I mean this in the most motherly, loving way possible (of course).
