We had each been to a couple of NHL games, separately, quite a while ago but we were excited to check out the Toronto Maple Leafs at home as the fans are known to be wild and the atmosphere is supposed to be amazing – spoiler alert: we were not disappointed.
The spectacle started a few minutes after we grabbed our seats with images and videos projected on the ice and the crowd. It concluded with the national anthems and massive Canadian and Toronto Maple Leafs flags being passed around the stadium.
The rest of Luke's birthday weekend was spent with lots of cupcakes, a bit of curling, a weekend out of town in Orangeville for a friend’s wedding reception, and a chilled out Sunday.
Here are some more photos of the big game (and a couple from Orangeville):
We're heading back to Newfoundland this week for Luke's first Newfie Christmas, and we can't wait to catch up with everyone there! Happy Holidays!
