The Oilers vs. The Kings

While we were in Edmonton for the week of Christmas/New Year, Jerry's brother graciously gave us second row tickets to the hockey game.  I enjoyed my first NHL game in style, while Joshua partied at his auntie and uncle's house.

Our seats were amazing and afforded us views such at this.

Players were constantly being checked immediately in front of us.  If the glass hadn't have been there, hefty toothless players would have landed in our laps, and we would have had a couple pucks in our face.

Suffice it to say, the Oilers are not #1 in the NHL, but at this game they ended a lengthy losing streak and beat the Kings 3-2 in a shootout.  

Unless I'm mistaken this was our first recreational time away from Joshua since he came home from the hospital.  We were glad to see his cute sleeping self when we arrived home, but were immensely grateful to be given a chance for a little break.

How fun and amazing seats!!! Joe and I have gone to several Bruins games, but we're usually in the nosebleeds. ;) Isn't it incredible how much you miss the little one when you're away from them? Sometimes I feel like half of me is missing. Glad you got the much needed break though!
