Friday night Jim and I went to GLI (Great Lakes Invitational Hockey Tournament). It is an annual hockey tournament between the Div 1 MI hockey schools and one other team in the league. This year Mich Tech actually did awesome winning 4-1 against Michigan State. Jim actually watched the game. I on the other hand seemed to like seeing old college friends down in the Olympia room. I was definitely bummed as there were only about 5 DZ's... but I guess they all go down there Saturday night.
Saturday was Jim's b-day. We met up with his highschool friend Laura and Dave at teh National Coney Island. That was big fun! I had never officially had a coney dog. We went to DQ growing up to get hot dogs with chili on it. So this "Coney" world is new to me. It was a hot dog with chili. Didn't think there was anything special.
That night we went to dinner with some more of Jim's friends. We got to meet Sarah's fiance Mike and see Mark and Tara. Josh was SO tired by that point so G'ma and G'pa Kirkwood took him home early.
Sunday we made the trip back home. Again Josh did well for the first 5.5 hours. Glad the drive is only 6.5 total! We hope you all had a WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS!
