*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.

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love seeing those big rackets in their little hands. So cute. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. 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.

  3. Ooh! I'm a tennis player and it just warms my heart to see little ones playing! Great pics!

  4. cute pictures of the kids!

  5. Kacey R. says

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

  6. 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!

  7. Aunt Julie says

    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!

  8. adorable pics! they look like they had a blast playing tennis :O) i will be back for the linky!!! enjoy the rest of your week

  9. Momisodes says

  11. T Rex Mom says

    Your kids do love tennising! Great photos.

    Wordful Wednesday up at T Rex Mom and Dad Tales.

    As far as your kids are concerned, I see future tennis stars. ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  14. They look like they're all in their element!

    Happy WW!

  19. Jennifer says
  20. that first photo is just wonderful!

    i would be a complete mess on a tennis court! lol

    this looks like a great way for them to burn off some energy!!

  21. MamaJoss says

    Wow! Great shots…tennis is a tough sport…and your kids seem to love it – that's awesome! I'm tired just watching them swing away… ๐Ÿ™‚

    My WW:

  22. I too was going to suggest McKLinky…

  23. A Family Completed... says

    What a great activity for them!!
    here is my link:

  24. Kristina P. says

    I had no idea that tennising was a word!

  25. Swirl Girl says

    how adorable!

  26. Muthering Heights and Other Senseless Sensibility says

    Those are such great pictures!

  27. 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)

  28. Sara Bonds says

    Fun shots. That is so neat that they play tennis at such a young age.


  29. Love the matching rackets and outfits!

  30. 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.

  31. 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.

  32. JamericanSpice says

    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!

  33. Daddydayone says

    I want to play!!!!!!!

  34. ohhhh – tennis is the best!!! Isn't it too HOT there though?? ๐Ÿ™‚

  35. Kekibird says

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

  36. scrappysue says

    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

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

  38. your daughter looks pretty in pink. love her matching racket

  39. 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

  40. Itajeff @Something To Share says

    what a great and fun activity for them.
    Happy WW

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

  43. 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!

  44. Renรฉe aka Mekhismom says

    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!

  45. Great Pictures! They look like professionals out there!

  46. That looks like great fun:-)

  47. Whimsical Creations says

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


  53. kisatrtle says

    too cute…I bet they play better than I do. LOL

  54. Kelli @ Gohn Crazy says

    They look so cute with their rackets. ๐Ÿ™‚

  55. Elaine A. says

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

  56. Oh, how cute!

  57. Kathleen W. says

    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.

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

  59. LifeAtTheCircus.com says

    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!

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

  61. Threeundertwo says

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

  62. Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) says

    "Tennising" – I love it!! They look like naturals! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy WW! ๐Ÿ™‚

  63. ChefDruck says

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

  64. Hoosier Homemade says

    What fun! Thanks for hosting!

  65. 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 ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )

  66. Sweet Annabelle says

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

  67. Mel Fraase says

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

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

  69. Great shots! Tennis is fun.

  70. Sherry at EX Marks the Spot says

    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.


  71. โ™ฅspoiled mommyโ™ฅ says

    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!

  72. 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

  73. Carissa(GoodnCrazy) says

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

    Sent you an email ๐Ÿ™‚

  74. how sweet! i loved playing tennis as a kid… wish i never gave it up :-/


  75. Brimful Curiosities says

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

  76. Adorable!!!

  77. mommaof4wife2r says

    love the tennis shots…i want my kiddos to play soooo bad!

  78. Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting says

    They are so cute tennising ๐Ÿ™‚

  79. Live.Love.Eat says

    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.

  80. BookLady says

    Tennis! Awesome sport! My WW today is about baseball, again! ๐Ÿ™‚

  81. How cute are they? Adorable! =)

  84. Casey's trio says

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

  85. Great pictures, happy WW!

  86. 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.

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

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

  89. girlytwins says

    So cute. I bet you have such a great time just watching them hit and chase balls ๐Ÿ™‚

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

  91. 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!
