Mixed Doubles

Last weekend was the "New Baby Sprinkle" in the gorgeous ...
Southern California ... beach front ... "oven."
Seriously ... yeah it was hot ... but otherwise ... amazing.
See the Sprinkle ... HERE.

After the baby festivities . . . the guys came home and  . . .

We jumped into my son's golf cart and took off for  . . .

 A little outdoor dinner . . .  drinks . . .  and . . .

A bit of fun trying to catch dinner . . .  unsuccessfully.

Okay ... so we had burgers instead ... but it was all good.

The next day a little "mixed doubles".
We're a big tennis family.

The "guys".
Westmont  tennis prodigies ... okay ... tennis greats ... okay ... Westmont tennis stars. 

Bryn ... aka "Sexy Mexi."  Strong ... steady ... and unflappable.

 Shea ... aka ... "Tennis-Kobe."  Agressive ... speedy ... and fiery competitiveness.

 The gals.
Complicated Kai  (on the left).  Strong ... beautiful strokes ... and always stylish.

 Erynne ... Bryn's girlfriend ... UC Irvine standout.  Smooth ... powerful ... and effortless.





And why yes.  Guess who?  Yes ... you are correct ... it's  Me.
You'll never again see this many pics of me ... guaranteed.
My game?
Powerful ... agressive ... no backhand ... and extremely rusty.

It's so much fun to get together and play.  It doesn't happen very often at present ...
 but it's an activity we all enjoy.  I'm hoping now that everyone is more
centralized ... Mercado Mixed Doubles ... will be a weekly event.
(By the way ... Mercado is our last name ... I'm just sayn' ... you might not know)

Oh ... and by the way ... as the day ended I jumped in front of a man with a
flat bed truck outside Kai's house.  He had some amazing Adironack furniture in the
back ... at a price I seriously could not pass up.

We bought the entire set for $150.  Such a deal!
It was kind of like a "furniture ice-cream truck".
(In case you actually care ... I was not injured by the truck.)

Looks like the weather's cooling just a bit so we're heading back down
to Newport Beach again this weekend.  
Evidently someone is having a "complicated" birthday celebration.
More news to follow.

Have a great weekend!
