Yesterday we went to our first live Hawthorn game for the season at Aurora Stadium. Kobe hung out with Steph, Chloe and Hugh at Treasure Island (thanks Steph!) and Eden and Lachie joined us, sitting in Aaron and Noah's seats as we have a family membership. It was nice to have them there with us, and I laughed with Eden saying how the whole mood at the game was completely different, as Aaron would always be so into the game and stressed, so I felt like I couldn't talk to him the whole time.
All I could think about was Aaron and how he would've been loving it. I pulled out one of his geurnseys and scarves and wore it to the game. It's so strange to pull them out of the drawer and wonder if Aaron would be upset if I wore a certain one (he was very particular about looking after his clothes!), and then remembered that it didn't really matter anymore which one I wore, as they are all mine now anyway.
Harri is turning out to be a man after my own heart, and brought along our little point and shoot camera and took photos during the game. I love that he loves taking pics :)
He wouldn't leave 'Nono' at home so he came and enjoyed the game with us.
Jay (like me and Lachie) enjoyed the food more than the footy, but it was a fun day and it was nice to have Eden and Lachie there with us. It wasn't the same as having Aaron belt out the Hawthorn theme song at the end when they won, but I know he was probably there in spirit, singing 'we're a happy team at Hawthorn'.
