Hockey Anyway

Whatever the weather ...
... these boys will play outside. 
Just a superfluous picture of my oldest handsome guy.

And That's a Week

I was gifted a new game for my birthday that appeals to my organization sensibilities. 
Be prepared to play next time you visit.  
E is still pounding away at the bag.
Getting stronger and faster. 
School continues for A.
You know, when he's not at a friend's house, or having a friend over to his house, and when he's not at a co-op, or swimming lessons, or in the woods with his outdoor skills class.
Charlie is still trying to figure out what his humans want from him.
And it would appear Spring has forsaken us.

Ottawa v Blackhawks

There were some tough moments for our lone Blackhawks fan.
Looking good boys. 
So nice to share an NHL game.

Enough Already

Once upon a time I thought it would be a good idea to buy the boys matching shirts. 
Here's what I didn't foresee ...
.... 19 months of seeing Adam in this shirt. 
First his, and then his brother's hand-me-down.

Reuse or Recycle?

What to do with a day at home?
Sewing project. 
After wearing this sweater almost every day last year, A outgrew it. 
But he wasn't really ready to say good-bye and it's been hanging in his closet. 
Voila! Pillow. 

Adam in the sweater when it still fit.

This Video Presents..

...the birthday girl. M, thank you for putting this together to celebrate the first 14,600 days of my life.

Can You Feel the Love Tonight? Why Yes I Can.

Usually, I prefer to be on on the planning committee for get togethers and on this side of the camera lens.
But for my birthday M assembled this awesome group of people to help me celebrate.

Ern acted as game show host to a rousing game of Family Feud.
(Great game show voice by the way Ern.)

The competition was fierce.

The players were focused.

The emotions were real.
Congratulations on your win Team Best.

There were also some great games of cribbage and euchre.

Do you see the look of excitement on Adam's and my face?
It's because the awesomest of all chocolate cakes is about to be eaten.

I have to say, I was really feeling the love today.

Thank you all for the salads, and the presents, and the cake, and the game preparation and the fun.

Happy 39+1

Got up this morning, put on my birthday pin and picked Grandpa up from the airport.
You'd think these two would let me win at least 1 game on my birthday.
Nope. They each took a turn beating me.

Odd Man Out

Poor E .....
While we were at the rink watching Adm's game ....
He was at home doing homework.

So responsible.

A Canadian First

She's a real Canadian now.
Somehow Ern had made it this far in life without ever having seen an NHL game. 
But no more. 
Ottawa v Colorado
