{Dallas Stars vs Vancouver Canucks // Game 6 // A Huge SURPRISE for Mason}

We pulled off the ultimate surprise for Mason...

He knew we were going to the Stars game but he had no idea where we were sitting...

{Stars vs Blackhawks // Game 5}

Our nephew had been wanting to go to a Dallas Stars game with us so we made that happen! Mason was so excited to introduce him to the game he loves so much! We got there a bit early so that we could show Tanner around the AAC! 

{Dallas Mardi Gras Parade}

One of the families in our friend group invited everyone to the Dallas Mardi Gras parade! We all met at a restaurant nearby for lunch before the parade. Then we headed over to get a good spot for the parade! It was a ton of fun!! 

{Mason's first Rookie practice}

Mason had his first Rookie hockey practice on Saturday and he had a blast! It was so neat to see Mason get all suited up in his hockey gear for his first class. There is no greater joy than seeing your child so happy and excited about something. 

{Mason's Hockey Fittings // 2023}

Ever since our very first Star's game back in December, Mason has been obsessed with the game of Hockey! He'd been asking us to get him skating and hockey lessons. We knew that the ice skating rink at the mall offered lessons so we went there to gather information. We were all set to sign-up through them when we learned from a friend that the Dallas Stars centers offered a "Rookie" program ever so often to train kids in the sport. So, we quickly went to the site to check it out. We were 1 day late for online sign-ups so Nate called them. They still had spots open and we were able to secure one of those spots for Mase! He was ecstatic. We had our fittings for gear and were blown away by the scope of this program. 


{Superbowl Party // 2023}

 Some of our friends hosted a Superbowl party at their house! Most of our friend group was able to come. We all brought a dish and hung out for the majority of the day. It's always a great time when we all get together. 


{Stars vs Lightning // Game #4}

Nate and I were sitting on the couch on Saturday afternoon and one of us mentioned going to the Stars game! It was kid appreciation day and we really wanted Mason to be able to attend for all the activities! With less than an hour until the game, we secured some tickets and were on our way!!  

{Stars vs The Ducks // Game #3}

Some of our dear friends got tickets to the Stars vs Ducks game and offered us three of their extra tickets! We quickly (and gratefully obliged).  This would be our first game since we went back on December 8th.  Our December and January were jam-packed or we would have gone to more games during that time. Anyhow, we were so excited and we couldn't wait to get there!!
