The call came in from my brother a few months ago, "Is Mike in for this year's pond hockey tourney?" After hearing stories of how much fun Matt had last year, and with hockey and skating becoming such a dominating element in our family...well, the answer was easy. And the excitement began.
Watching Daddy skate. Seeing cousins. Sleeping in a hotel. Swimming in the pool. Missing school. Traveling to NH was on all our minds through the Holidays and into the cold month of January.
And cold it was. Temps hovered in the single digits for Daddy and Uncle Matts 2 games on Friday night and another 2 Saturday morning. We bundled up the best we could, stuffed warmers into our mittens and boots, and sipped warm cocoa in between games. The kids never complained about the cold, I guess warmed by the excitement and playing with cousins.
See you next year!
