Volleyball for All

It is no secret to those who have visited our church and stayed long after or have come to any of our parties, that we love volleyball. Before attending Winterbrook Fellowship, I was completely indifferent to the game, but now it has become one of my favorite outdoor activities!

For Kayla's 21st birthday, we decided to go to her now in-laws' house and have some volleyball tournaments and, of course, food.
Here's the birthday girl serving it up for us! And she is hardly ever without her counterpart (below.)

Lovely ladies!
This is me after serving. I look a bit like I'm doing some sort of Mexican Hat dance or something!
This is the famous Denny Spike. I don't know who had my camera to get that shot, but it's brilliant!

Apparently I'm not the only one who likes to dance after a serve! So does George!
Amanda and Tasha. They're such sweet young ladies!

Don't mess with the Pastor when he's playing volleyball! Look at the intent on his face!
After our mixed games, we did our usual girls against guys, where the guys could only use their heads and feet to hit the ball. One of them said that we wouldn't want to play that way because we always lose, so we said, "Bring it on!" And we won the first game! So much for that idea! They won the second game, of course, because God has a sense of humor!
Because Kevin was not able to come to Kayla's bridal shower (mostly because bridal showers are for ladies), he was aching to give Kayla the present he got her- I'm not sure of it's technical name, but it's supposed to check an outlet to see if it's live or not. Pretty handy!
There's a very satisfied birthday girl! What a fun day, if you ever get a chance to come down and visit us at Winterbrook Fellowship, be sure to come ready for some serious volleyball for all!
