Adventure: Badminton In The Park

Adventure: Badminton In The Park

Badminton in the Park

Last week we headed out doors to Griffith Park to take advantage of some time off together as a family. With Willie Nelson and Buju in tow, Sam and I packed a picnic lunch and our latest score from Big 5: badminton. Without a net, our game would consist of playing over trees but at least it provided lots of laughs as we looked ridiculous in our pursuit of 15 volleys. I highly recommend this activity for the weekend.Enjoying the sun and crumbs

Christie Jones created the calligraphy for my tattoos. I adore them and her!

This was my first time playing badminton and I have to say I'm totally into it.

Big 5 hooked it up but forgot the net

Forgot a net so we practiced volleying over trees.

No net meant we practiced over trees.
