Sibling Rivalry

Grab your coat, hat and gloves. The ice is frozen and it’s about to get chilly in here.  Hockey is in full swing and we are all loving it.  Both older boys are on the same U-8 team and they had their first game Saturday.  They play inter-squad games until we travel to other towns to compete.  For the first game brothers were on opposite teams!

November_0150That is the oldest there in the front with the black jersey and white helmet.  His little brother is bound to get to him, he’s in the red jersey with red helmet. 

November_0154Uh oh, looks like the confrontation is on…..

November_0155  Yup!   I’m not sure it was the actual plan to take out his brother though.

November_0167Going solo, he did score twice too!

November_0168 But, this wasn’t one of those times!  Don’t worry, these guys have so much padding on that injuries are not too common.  Yet.

November_0170 Deja Vu or what?   After talking to each of the boys after the game it was clear they were out to get the puck from each other.

This one absolutely cracks me up.  

It’s an incredible fun sport, more fun than I had even anticipated.

Oh my gosh, I would be having a heart attack if my kids were playing! I would be sooooo excited and shaky the entire time...LOL!

Must be fun to have two of them out on the ice. I enjoy watching the younger ones play - they are so good on the ice.

I'm thinking about letting my son play hockey, but I guess he would need to learn to ice skate first! It might help a bit.

That looks like so much fun to be watching as a Mom. Great shots...the lighting in those arenas stinks and you rocked these pictures.

There is nothing like brotherly competion.
I sure did look like they each meant business however. So cute.
Thanks for sharing.

PS-Stacey-just put the padding on them and turn 'em loose! they'll figure it out--I tried numerous times to teach the boys how to skate and all I got was a sore back!!

Opposite teams! I bet you had fun watching the pictures are really great and truly show the rivalry between them. Glad they are having fun!

Yikes! Siblings as opponents. If I see one of my children down, I'd surely go hysterical!

Your boys are brave and totally sports!

Too much fun!!! I wish hockey was popular around here. We'd have to travel to Denver for the closest skating rink.
