Volleyball Birthday Trifecta

We have just completed the Rust family birthday week. Within the span of 6 days Jeanie, Maddie, and I all celebrate our birthday. Some years it is also known as hell week! I have already blogged about Jeanie’s and Maddie’s birthdays. Now it is my turn.

I hold the lead-off birthday position for the family. We celebrated last Sunday by playing in a Beach Volleyball tournament. I teamed up with Chance, the Athletic Director for Maddie’s school. As you can tell by the jump serve – kinda a stud.

Me. Not so much. I spent a lot of time in the sand.

But did manage to pull off some respectable plays.

Maddie played in the Women’s division with one of her teammates from school.

They played very well together and each had some spectacular plays.

A great day and a great birthday. Hell week is technically over. But, we promised to have a party for Maddie and a few of her friends as her birthday fell on a weekday and we couldn’t hold the event then. Stay tuned!
