My boys ♥ Tonight is gonna be a very special moment for us. Eddie-Bo and his team are gonna play a 3 minute game in the first intermission at the Redwings game!!! Eddie-Bo literally grew up in this arena, he took his first steps in the family room with a stick in his hand, and Redwings has always been great to the kids and letting them hang out with the team practice days and after games. He knew all the players names and numbers and sang the national anthem song (both American and the Canadian) by the age of two. He LOVES hockey!!! So for us, we couldn’t asked for a better ending at the Joe!! I get teary eyes just thinking about Eddie-Bo entering the ice tonight!!

I think I can say I grew up here too :) I was 24 years old when we moved to Detroit, and I have spent many many hours here. I loved watching Johan play, and I still like coming here, even it’s not the same anymore.


Our amazing babysitter Lisa! It was her birthday wish to get a tour of Joe Louis!! Her birthday was in February… so yesterday we decided it was time to go before the Joe is gone!!

Two more games to play, tonight and tomorrow, and after that we’ll say Farewell to The Joe!! Thanks for all the great memories!!!


Hockey hockey




To see the boys skating with their dad ♥  Johan has been feeling better lately and I really hope it stays like that. Makes me so happy to see him with some energy and have fun on the ice together. Eddie-Bo has no hockey with his team over this holiday weekend, so open skate it is instead. And that’s what they are planning to do tomorrow morning as well. Oliver is so proud to finally be on the ice!!

And tonight, me and Jana ended up going to the Red Wings game, with Lucas, Beau and Eddie-Bo. Since the game started 7pm I decided to leave Oliver at home, he goes to bed that time anyway. He was of course not home alone :)

Remember my Halloween outfit :) Yes, I gave the suit back to awesome ‘Parking Dave’!!

Good night!
