Since Aaron passed away I'm finding that I'm into the footy more now, than when he was here. I think it's because I know that it was something that Aaron was so passionate about, and I really want to continue on our love for the Hawks with the boys, and especially with Harri. I have to admit that we are now all Hawks mad. I'm sure that Aaron would be proud that I know most of the players and know more about what is going on with the Hawks, even sixteen months after he passed away.
The reason we chose to go to Melbourne last weekend, was that we knew that it would be awesome to go to watch the Hawks V Sydney as it was a grand final rematch. This time we just hoped that there would be a different result.
On Saturday afternoon Nicki and Alex took us for a drive to Waverley Stadium and the Hawks Nest shop. It was so cool to have a look around.
Harri wanted to buy out the whole shop :)
The atmosphere at the MCG is always incredible and Jalen even loved the game! It was so cool to see him get into it and watch the whole game, as he usually prefers to sit and play on his phone when the games are on.
Nicki (unintentionally) booked awesome seats just off to the side of the goals. She said that she didn't have a choice when she was booking the tickets, and we were just given a certain section, but it's where Aaron used to always book seats whenever they went on the school footy trips.
Kobe is surprising me and is starting to get into footy as much as Harri. It's so fun to watch him screaming and cheering and checking the scores every time someone scored. We had such a fun night and the best thing was that it was an awesome game to watch, with Hawthorn beating the Swans. We are lucky as we get to watch them play again this Saturday as they are playing at Aurora Stadium, and can't wait for it.
