Code Red Hockey Tourney...

The boys had a hockey tourney in Boise this past weekend, wow, what a tournament! I'm only gonna give you the short run down...

D's team ended up taking 3rd. Not bad, but definitely not what they are used to, that's for sure.

C-Man's team did great & actually played their best games of the season so far. They lost in the championship game so came home with 2nd place medals. They skated their hearts out, it was SO nice to see them actually playing as a team out there.

Bonez' team... well, they did AMAZINGLY well! They ended skating away with the 1st place trophy in their division! The super cool thing about this is... The Treasure Valley Flames (12u) have been undefeated for the past 2 years. They took 2nd (or 3rd) at Nationals 2 years ago, then went back & won the whole thing last year. We beat them Saturday. That was a HUGE blow to them. They were out for blood at that point, we were the first to beat them & they were NOT happy. Then, we had to face them again Sunday for the "BIG one". Once again, we beat them, BUT, not only did we beat them, we "mercied" them... that means we beat them by 8! They did NOT take it well, let's just leave it at that! :) Man, our kids skated like they had never skated before, it was a GREAT weekend for them.

Ok, NOW... let me tell you a little bit about the teams we played... the Idaho teams are absolutely incredible players. They dominate in each division, they are all very good. (Well, except their "B" teams, but I'm talking their "A" teams here). Most teams can't even score on them, that's how good they are. Our 10's team didn't win, but we did score!

Anyway, it was a GREAT weekend all the way around.

Ok, just because I love these pics, I have to post them too. The first one is of D in between games. This is D "hanging out" with Trevor, who is on the 16u team...

Here's the Princess in the "tub" at the hotel room. This hotel was SO nice, btw. Anyway, she thought this little "cut out" was built just for her.
