Tuesday night we went to our first ever hockey game. And by “we,” I mean all six of us (ages 6 to 69). We are basically a dysfunctional version of the Griswold family, so let’s not talk about the van ride over. There are not enough eye-roll emojis in the world. Once we got there it was ALL GOOD!
Preston carried around his hockey stick for a week in preparation for this night. And although JP looks like he needs to find a bathroom, I promise he was excited too!
We’ve yet to find an activity/event in town that our entire family can enjoy together. Swamp Rabbit hockey is now on our “Things to Do” list.
The kids were lucky enough (thanks Swamp Rabbits!) to hang out behind the scenes a little before the game.
JP even enjoyed watching them practice.
They waited so patiently for the team to take the ice.
We hung around backstage long enough for the boys to get high fives from the team on their way out of the tunnel. (I don’t have pics of that b/c I was taking video).
Another thing that impressed me was the food. They offer some really great deals, ya’ll! Unlike the movie theatre, you don’t have to take out a second mortgage to eat at The Well. Kids’ meals are $5 EVERY GAME (hot dog, chips and a soda). Be sure to check their website for the Hoppy Hour specials.
Let me assure you, you do not have to know anything about hockey to have a great time. If you ask Preston, the music was worth the price of admission. At one point, I thought I was at a dance party. Move over Stella, ’cause this six year old got his GROOVE on!
Thank you, VisitGreenvilleSC for another awesome experience we won’t soon forget!
