Friday night we drove out to New Westminster for Adam's hockey game. I forgot my "big" camera which was too bad because Queen's Park Arena is such a great arena to take pictures in. My little digital camera doesn't quite cut it for hockey photos!
The team won 2-1 and is now second place in the playoffs.
It has been so so cold here. The boys and I woke up on Saturday morning to tiny icy snowflakes falling. We wondered if soccer and an outdoor hockey practice would be going ahead. Hockey was cancelled but soccer was still a go. We braved the frigid and slippery conditions in Kerrisdale. Brrr. The boys tied 1-1 and just tried to stay warm.
Adam had a hockey practice and then came home to play in the snow a bit. Not really packable but still enough to get out in. Colin made his trademark happy face with snowing on our kitchen door!
Neil's plane was delayed for hours because of the weather so his brother offered to pick him up at the airport around midnight. It was nice to have him back home. It's just not quite the same when someone from our family circle is missing.
Neil brought the boys back all sorts of gadgets and gizmos from his conference and also found them perfect kanji shirts from Japantown in San Fran. Adam's kanji is happiness and Colin's is samurai. He also brought me some of my favourite SF treats and some more bento fun!
After Colin's guitar lesson, we headed over to the rink for a Richmond-Richmond throwdown. When Colin and I arrived, we were down 2-0. We kept creeping closer and finally were up 4-3. The last 30 seconds of the game were pretty intense - the other team pulled their goalie and there must have been about 10 good shots on our goal. Yikes. But the team pulled it off.
We all just had a quiet Sunday dinner and evening at home. After a very busy few days, it was much needed down-time.
Looking forward to another full and fun week ahead!
