after lunch we had some time to kill before we had to be at the delta center (i know that it's called energy solution arena now but it will always be the delta center to me) for dinner so we just hung out in our tiny hotel room and watched tv. at 5:30 we headed over to the gift shop at the delta center to get amanda a kyle korver jersey (we all have our favorite players jersey and she wasn't able to make it to the game so we got her one), and they had so many cute things for babies and toddlers....so you can bet that our children will be decked out in game gear whenever we go to games. we headed up to the "club house" for a buffet style dinner and then down to the tunnels to greet the players. sad thing is that we were assigned to stand in the hornets tunnel instead of the jazz and the hornets wanted nothing to do with giving jazz fans high five before the game. but as we were getting to our seats from underneath the floor, memo and harpring came wandering through, so josh got to high five harpring. that was kinda fun. we also got to meet "bear". we had pretty decent seats to watch the game, and it was a good game...the jazz won 102-88! it was a different feeling that most games tho because the owner of the jazz, larry miller died just a day prior to the game. there was a tribute and a moment of silence for him before the game started, his whole family was at the game and the players dedicated the win to larry miller. the stadium was fairly quiet the whole game and i think it was because everyone was feeling a little more respectful than usual.

saturday morning we got up and met up with patti, ron, kim, and robb at the "cracker barrel" for breakfast, and it was super tasty. then we headed home. josh wasn't feeling well so when we got home we both crashed and lounged around till 6ish (we had a mini picnic of crakers and cheese in bed), and then we got up and watched the oscars and ordered pizza (yes we ate terrible the whole weekend). it was a super lazy sunday afternoon but it felt so good after feeling like we were busy most of the weekend.
josh still isn't feeling well, so hopefully we can recover from the weekend and get feeling better.
