introducing our kids to...
I forgot how much I love living in the city (or in our case just outside of the city in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood. We get to enjoy the suburb lifestyle but have everything we could need or want just a short drive into the city!) and having things to do! Eric mentioned a few weeks ago that the Boston Bruins were going to be in town. We used to go to hockey games all the time when we lived in northern Utah, but we were a little bit wishy washy on whether we wanted to take the kids or not. I finally decided a couple days before the game that it would be worth it to take the kids, especially since this is Eric's "team" (I mean, he is a New England fan even though the Red Sox take the #1 spot in his heart ;) ha ha!) and boy are we glad we went!
I forgot the rush of adrenaline you get just as the game is about to start, the loud music, the energetic fans... it's all so fun! Throw in some good food, fights, loud music (plus a win from our team) and we've got the funnest family date night :) The kids seriously did amazing, especially considering the game didn't even start until Mia's bedtime, and it felt so good to get out of the house with my people! There will definitely be more hockey nights in the near future :)
