TDIH March 16th

Camp Night

This past weekend we had some really wild weather, on saturday there was 15mm of rain and then over night it turned to 10cm of snow. Only problem with this was Keir was supposed to go on a overnight camping trip with his Beaver/Scout group. With the 15mm of rain  we put the kibosh on that so we improvised and camped out in our family room. We set the tent up and put out our sleeping bags.
Here is the tent set up in the "spacious" family room:

Here are the "neatly" set up sleeping bags:IMG_2402
Keir playing in his sleeping bag:
What do you do when  you go camping? Have a campfire of course, here is Keir and his "big fire" (in case you are unclear were the fire actually is, it is the pile of stuff on top of my brown slippers):

Isla even joined us for the camping,
If you look real close at the previous picture you can see that the tent played some weird tricks on her hair. It must have been some serious static, here is a closeup of the crazy hair:
I am glad to say that we survived the night in the "wilds" of the family room, we were not eaten by any bears, mountain lions, or mosquitoes.
Here is a picture of the early at the camp site:
I guess that is what you call making the best out of a bad situation.
That is all for now
Take care

Hockey Night

Last friday Keir, my Dad and myself went to an Ottawa Senators game. The tickets were part of Keir's Xmas presents and he had been looking forward to it for ... well since Xmas ;-)
We started off with supper before the game, we got Keir a hamburger and fries, he proceeded to have about three bites and two fries. I asked why he wasn't eating, his response was that he wanted to save room for "hockey food". "What is hockey food?" I asked. "Giant Pretzels!" Keir said with a smile.
The game was against the Boston Bruins, ironically it was also Chris Kelly (a long time Ottawa Senator, that got traded to the Bruins) first game for the Bruins. It was also Thomas Caberale first game as a Bruin, the Bruins were very active in the trade market as they seem to be stocking up for a playoff run.
We made it out to the game and eventually found our seats, here is Keir happily waiting for the game to start:
Before the game started the national anthems (American and Canadian) was played. They  started a tradition a couple of years ago, the traditon is while the Canadian National Anthem is being sung, they pass around a really, really big flag:
Keir enjoying the game:
Keir enjoying more "hockey food" timbits! Not sure how those are hockey food but that is what he asked for:
We had great seats (probably some of the best in the arena) in the second ring of the arena. You really got to see the game, but were also close enough to see all the action. The seats below us are technically "better" than ours (they are more expensive) but the glass and the netting can obscure the play.
Here is Keir and Grandpa near the end of the game.
The Sens ending up losing the game (they have lost a ton of games this year, although they actually played fairly well all things considered) but most importantly we all had a really good time.
That is all for now
Take care
