We play tennis or swim. Tennis is a family activity that we enjoy together. We all take lessons. My lessons are at Rancho Santa Fe and Shanghai Racquet Club where there is  a large tennis community. The children enjoy tennis through extra curricula activities at school and also BISCAPS. We also enjoy cooking during the weekend.
