Skate with the Canes


Today, we attended a special event with the Carolina Hurricanes thanks to a Christmas gift from my mother-in-law. She got us tickets to this charity event that allows you to get autographs, pictures, and of course, actually skate with the members of the Carolina Hurricanes. At my current state of pregnancy, skating was out, but I did have a good time, as did both Chris and Athena. I'm sure Chris will have more to say on his blog, so I'll just leave you with this picture. Left to right: Cory Stillman (wing), The Mommy Librarian, Cam Ward (goalie), Athena, Chris, and Andrew Hutchinson (defenseman).

The look on Athena's face - that's what she does when you tell her to smile - scrunches up her eyes and nose to show her pretty teeth. It's too cute.

Hockey is something that I have watched since I was very young - I grew up in northern Virginia and my family had tickets to the Capitals games (back when it was the Cap Center). I have never been able to give it up.

Ack! The pigtails! I love them too. And we are finally at a point that she will keep them in. She asks for "ponies" when she wants them.

However, right before the first picture at the arena yesterday, she reached up and pulled both of them out... YOINK! She handed daddy the bands smiling as if to say, "and you thought I would look cute for the pictures, eh?" Her hair was standing up on both sides a la Flock of Seagulls.

Fortunately, I got the "ponies" back in before the shutter snapped.
