Dad in action. Apparently after all these years he is still has all his badminton moves. He also made sure we played according to all the rules. who knew there were so many?
This is my favorite picture. My dad is demonstrating great form for the underhand serve while Cisco is demonstrating a different pose.
Erin was very into the game and took a few dives. This is her getting up from a very valiant leap for the birdie... and Nicole laughing at her.Cisco and I played against Nicole and Erin in the first round of games. Nicole & Erin won 2 out of the 3 games we played so they went on to play my dad and Cisco. Of course my dad is good and likes to take the skilled shots like spiking the birdie so him and Cisco were the winners of that round of games. It was a great memorial day!
The next morning i woke up and thought i had slept weird because my side hurt really bad. I told Cisco and showed him where it hurt and he said it was probably from badminton. I thought that was unlikely but when i reached up and made a swinging-my-racket-motion, i felt the pain in that exact spot. So i didn't sleep weird, i just played badminton harder than i probably should have and woke up very sore the next day! i don't know if i have ever been sore from badminton. I think that means i need to work out a little more. Maybe badminton is more rigerous than it used to be.
