Lightning Strikes... Day 389 06DEC09

After the events of yesterday the boys slept in until almost noon. Apparently they didn't get much sleep at camp the night before.

We spent a quiet late morning at home and then we headed off to the Lightning holiday party we had been invited to attend. When we arrived we found our names at the table we were supposed to sit at. Each family is adopted by one of the Lightning players and they give the kids gifts and spend the afternoon with them.

Who was our player you ask?

None other than Steven Stamkos #91 who is Joshua's favorite player of all! It was sheer luck that he was given Joshua as his kid this year. Joshua was thrilled!

Steven is a wonderful guy and took great care of Joshua. He also brought Joshua his favorite thing. LEGO. Jarrod's favorite gift by far was the Nerf N-Strike Elite game for the Wii. He refused to even put the box in the trunk on the way home instead opting to hold it in his lap. As soon as we walked in he got it set up and started playing. Joshua went right to work on his LEGO building. Gone were the sad children from the night before, both of them replaced by happy children having loads of fun.

So a big heartfelt thanks to the Children's Cancer Center, The Lightning Foundation, and our #1 hockey player Steven Stamkos!!!

You guys rock!
