New Year's Eve Pond Hockey

On New Year's Eve, we went over to our friends, Gordy & Susan's house.  We actually got there in the late afternoon and were able to suit up and play some pond hockey.  This was Ryan's first time skating outside and it was actually the exact same place we took Cale for his first time when he was about 3 years old.  Turns out, THEY LOVED IT (and when I mean they, I am talking about Pat, Cale and Ryan - I stayed nice and warm in the running car taking pictures)!!!  They cannot wait to go back!  If they ALL have their way, they will be going back every Sunday (starting next week, I vetoed skating in below zero temps!) to skate some more!  I am all for it...mainly because I don't have to participate.  Stay home, keep warm, enjoy silence.  Good enough for me!!!

Doesn't he look like a pro??  Daddy made him suit all the way up!!!

Cale loved it and he is really good! 
 His blood sugars didn't...they dropped.  We have learned, rather quickly, that his blood sugars drop FAST when he is skating.

Pat had fun...but he paid for it on Friday!

We stayed all night at their house and rang in 2010!  The boys had so much fun.  Cale ended up with a little bitty four year old girl attached to him the entire night.  Turns out that their neighbor's daughter, who is 4 but actually looks about 2, loved him.  They adopted her from China and she is so stinking adorable!!  Cale actually told me that he wanted to take her home.  Her mom wanted to take Cale home!

So the boys played, Pat hung out with the guys in the garage and I caught up on A LOT of gossip with the chicks.  Good times!

I don't think that ice would hold up in our 78 degree weather! Jealous?!

The boys look so cute, and Ryan does look like a "King"! hahahaha!
Cale has a heart for the Asian girls, could be future daughter in law!

Happy 2010! Where the heck is the time going?
