Midweek Recap!

Brian and I went with his brother and SIL to the Avalanche Ducks game.

Truthfully, I can’t follow hockey well when I go to a game. My eyesight sucks and I can never see the puck. I also have (what I thought was) an irrational fear of getting hit by the puck.

However, I do LOVE going to the games.

For the awesome atmosphere:

The happy people:

And the beer:

Unforunately, a guy sitting two seats down from our group, in our row did get hit with a puck. It hit him in the brow-bone and started heavily bleeding immediately. He was able to get up and walk to the ushers that called an ambulance.

I did not take pictures of the injured man for my blog because I’m not a jerk,

 I shall give you this visual aid instead:

We went to the Grove this week and I bought Hunger Games. I’ve heard it is addicting. I’ll let you know.

Samuel and Aram were dying to try out their new sparkly princess coloring packets my mom got for them.

I thought their finished work was beautiful.

…..but do you notice anything particularly interesting about Samuel’s choice of colors for the princesses?

Finally, the rain cleared up, the sun came out, and gave us this gorgeous distant view of the snow capped mountains from our bedrooms:

    Fun post. I don’t see anything weird about Samuel’s coloring of the princesses. I’m more disturbed at Aram’s BLUE princesses! Heehee.

    Just kidding. You’re so darn pretty, you know that? And YIKES to the guy getting hit with puck. Guess your fear wasn’t irrational after all.

    I have never been to a hockey game. It is cold in the arena when you go? Where were you guys sitting?

      LOL Aram’s blue princesses were funny…

      All of Samuel’s princesses are brown! He did another one today and made the prince in the picture “beige” and the princess brown! LOL it is so cute….he wants to be a princess, so I think he’s trying to make them look more like him.

      We were sitting pretty close. Right where the plastic/glass stops…that is prime area for getting hit it seems like!

        I think it’s awesome that Samuel wants to be a princess. Your kids are so cool.

    I’ve only been to one hockey game live and in person, but I was amazed at how much different it is to watch it than on TV. It almost feels like an entirely different game. Glad you had a good time!

    I almost went to a hockey game once when I was in college and living in NYC. My dad gave me tickets he couldn’t use and I scalped them out in front of Madison Square Garden. Then my friends and I jumped into a cab and promptly headed downtown for a night of drinking. That’s my hockey memory. Thanks for your little recap–I like princesses especially if they’re blue or brown.

    Ah…what a fun week you’ve had! I LOVE hockey games but don’t go nearly often enough. Have never read the Hunger Games….must check it out! Love the Grove…and I do believe if I could get my son to color princesses, they just might be blue : ) Happy Wednesday!

    My son wants to be a princess too. I thought it was just because his big sister wants to be a princess but I guess most boys want to be a princess? Love the brown princesses.

    A guy got hit!? Way to get your fears confirmed! And text me ASAP re the Hunger Games! I love Samuel’s choice of glitter. Glitter is the best. Until you have to clean it up…
