Five on Friday - This Week

1- We went to a Carolina Hurricanes game. Mr. Pink's company (displayed above my head! Ha!) is a sponsor so FREE good seat tickets and a parking pass were just the motivation I needed to go to an NHL hocky game. It's cold at those games! Mini#2 was in heaven. He's a Jordan Staal fan and was really upset that we left with 5 mins left and missed his and the Hurricanes only goal.

2- We signed up for runner's camp and soccer camp for June. The kids love both! Both are huge around here and run by two different churches.

3- We went with friends to Raleigh's Pullen Park to play and rode on an open-air kid's train in 50-ish weather. The things moms do. But then we went for cupcakes at Gigi's so all was ok.

4- We filled out our NCAA brackets. We love college basketball and I'm waiting for the NC State game to start as I post. Did anyone see the NC State '83 champions documentary on ESPN Sun night? It was awesome. I cried. Well done. I went to school with Jimmy V's daughters and I remember listening to the ESPY awards speech he made (weeks before he died) in an NC State crowded bar and you could have heard a pin drop it was so reverently quiet.

5- We packed our backpacks up once again after 2 1/2 weeks off and went back to school yesterday. While glad to return to routine, not glad to pack those d*#% lunchboxes again. LOL!

Have a great weekend!

Mrs. They did a major renovation about 2 years ago. It's so much nicer now, but the classic train, historical carrousel and kiddie boats you might remember are all still there. :)
