Go Hawks!!!

We are a sports loving family. I grew up around sports my whole life, my hubby played football in high school. My kiddos have also developed a love for sports. Josh loves any kind of sport, esp. if it has to do with any Atlanta team- Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks, Atlanta Thrashers. Annalee loves softball, baseball, basketball and soccer but doesn't care to much for football except for the New Orleans Saints. Her favorite player is Drew Brees.
Last week my sister-in-law called and asked if we might be interested in free tickets to see the Atlanta Hawks play basketball. Considering that Josh and Annalee watch them every time they are on TV, I said "YES"! Insert the fact that my hubby does NOT like basketball, I told her to go ahead and get them for us!
I gently told my hubby what had transpired that day and to say that he did not share my excitement is an understatement! "Oh, boy" he said! I told him that he should be excited for the kids. We would have never bought our own Hawk's tickets so we should enjoy and be grateful for these free ones, right?
Well, he went along with it. We didn't tell the kids about the tickets until the Friday night before. They were so excited!!!
We had no trouble getting to the arena and finding parking. The game was not crowded and we had pretty decent seats and the Hawks won!
Waiting for the game to start....Go Hawks!
Getting the game started. The Hawks are in the White uniforms, they played the Pacers.

The final score! Hawks win! Sorry it is so blurry,,, I guess I moved :)

After the game we asked Daddy if he had fun and he said "Yeah". I later asked him if he wanted to do it again and he said "NO"! What a trooper! :) The kids had fun and that is all that matters, right?!
