Kaden's First Hockey Game

Since Kaden has taken a recent interest in hockey, I thought it would be fun to take him to a Griffin's game. We got tickets for the family game this past Sunday night (of course the same night that the snowstorm decided to show up), which also happened to be $1 breadsticks and pop night- woo whoo! :) When we told Kaden we were taking him to the game, he was SO excited. He didn't know what to think when we got in the arena. He kept looking around asking where the hockey players were. It was a bit overwhelming for him at first with all of the cheering, lights, etc., but he quickly got used to it. He LOVED the game, and was excited that Daddy caught him a t-shirt (which he may have to grow into, being a men's large). He was also fascinated with the zamboni, Griff, the "airplane" (aka blimp), and the princess girls who ice skated in between periods. Oh, and don't forget the popcorn. He gobbled up breadsticks and got popcorn. When we asked him what his favorite part of the game was, he said, "popcorn." Figures. I could have saved myself a lot of money and popped my own popcorn at home watching hockey on TV! :) It was worth it, though. And of course, now he keeps asking when we're going to another game!

Ah, yes, the fights. Personally, they were my favorite part (besides spending the night with my boys, and giving Kaden a fun, new experience!)

You know, I fit pretty well into a men's large t-shirt. I also happen to be a diehard griffins fan, but currently lack any apparel.
