Loveland Tennis Tourney + Weekend

Remember when I said I was about to go play in a tennis tournament HERE
Well it was a week-long tourney, July 11-17, 2011.
It benefited the Boys & Girls Club of Loveland.
Kevin played singles & doubles & I just played doubles with Kevin.
Maybe next tourney I will sign up for singles, we will see!
I played Varsity tennis in high school for 2 years and both times I played doubles!
I just love doubles, so fun if you ask me!

Monday, July 11, 2011- Singles Match
Kevin's first tennis singles match EVER. He won! He is one of those athletic guys that annoys the crap out of you because he will pick up a sport that you played your whole life and then dominate you. Yep, that is what I get for marrying an athlete. (He also played Baseball at BYU) Ha. But I was SO excited for him!

Wednesday/Thursday, July 13-14, 2011- Singles Match
Kevin played in his 2nd singles match EVER. He won the 1st set and was up in the 2nd set 5-2 or 3 and then it started raining really hard!
He had to re-schedule it for Thursday due to a rain delay where he only had to win one game, which he did.  So he won the 2nd game as well and was scheduled to play in the semis on Saturday.
That is him serving right there. ]Then he broke his strings and had to use one of my older Prince rackets with pink strings haha :)
Friday, July 15, 2011- Doubles Match
Kevin and I had our first doubles match together. AND it was probably the first doubles match we have ever played. We didn't do that well as it rained the whole week prior and of the tennis tournament so we didn't get to practice much! Haha. But it was still fun.
After the match, we drove home and played some more tennis! I changed my serve and I am SO glad I did. I need to practice that serve more actually.

THEN... our good friends, Jonny & Stephanie Neeley stopped at our house. 
They are friends from Utah. Stephanie played Volleyball for Utah and Jonny was one of Kevin's friends from freshman year at BYU. We hung out with them a lot this past year. Anyways, so they are moving to Arkansas and drove through Fort Collins on their way there. They were going to stay the night and leave Saturday but Kevin persuaded them to stay another day haha.

Saturday, July 16, 2011- Singles & Doubles
Yes, Kevin and I just on our way to a match!
Kevin played a singles match at 8 am and lost to the guy who won the whole tournament. Pretty good I'd say for his first tourney! Then we played doubles and lost the 1st set in a tiebreaker 4-7, and lost the second set 5-7, so it was SUPER close. And we should have won a few times so that was annoying but I'm just glad we played a lot better! It was our first tournament together so I think we will get better. AND my serve was a ton better than the night before!
We ate lunch with the Neeleys at QDoba (love that place), went on canoe rides, rode the Ranger, the boys had a tennis match together, we ate at Noodles, and then rented The Roommate.

Remember when I talked about Leighton Meester in The Roomate HERE

Anyways, that was our week full of tennis and weekend with the Neeleys!

Anyone got a fun weekend plans?
