The cup of all cups!
Sunday night we took Braeden to see the Stanley Cup on campus. An Elon alumna works for the Hurricanes in their marketing department and arranged the Elon visit. We had to wait about 20 minutes in line, but Braeden enjoyed interacting with Stormy the Ice Hog, the 'Canes mascot. He even gave Stormy a high five!
Then it was our turn to view the cup. It was taller than Braeden! Mat had hoped Braeden could get his picture taken sitting in the cup, but it turns out most of the cup is the base and there's actually very little to the cup. But we did get some cute pictures of Braeden standing on the table next to the cup. When he finally understands what hockey is, we think he'll be really happy to look back at these pictures!
