hockey tourrnament- Roseau

This past weekend we had our last out of town hockey tournament for this season. Friday morning, Jake and I loaded a coach bus with his team and parents and headed to Roseau, MN; which is only about 10 minutes from the Canadian border. I am so glad that we took a bus and that I didn't have to drive!!!



The boys did great this weekend- winning 3 of 4 of their games and ended up taking 2nd place.


They had fun running around the hotel, running around town looking for good deals on hockey sticks, playing poker...


And some of the boys chose to do some extra 'just for fun' skating. The rinks in Roseau are open 24 hours a day and the kids can just go and skate whenever there is open ice- for free!

Over the years, I have been to a lot of hockey tournaments but I have to say that this one was probably one of my favorite. It was just a lot of fun all around; from riding the bus, to the welcoming town, and having the boys come in 2nd place.

One of the highlights for me this weekend was when a group of us went to the Legion ~


and played pull-tabs... and won $500!!


Fun weekend!

I love the sign, "Canada" with an arrow. Not too often you get to see that! What a great idea using a Charter bus...I will have to keep that one in mind. Looks like fun!
