As some of you may know, the Moody family spent the last week of the NHL season in Atlanta on spring breaks. We got to see some great sites and spent a lot of time together. We highly suggest a trip to Stone Mountain as well as the Georgia Aquarium. Great times were had by all.
Before our vacation, we hounded the Thrashers in Tampa. During the trip we spent more efforts getting pictures with the players than getting items signed. We got those personal photos signed while we were on vacation.
A small summary of our Vacation Hounding Adventures at the Atlanta Thrashers practice facility:
Pucks signed by Clarke MacArthur, Eric Boulton and Don Waddell;
A photo of Mikayla signed by Johnny Oduya, Ondrej Pavelec and Jim Slater;
A photo of Eric Boulton and Mark Popovic with Mikayla; and
Max Afinogenov and Slava Kozlov also took time to sign their photo with Mikayla.
Signing cards for us were:
Top row: Johnny Oduya, Tobias Enstrom, Slava Kozlov and Nik Antropov; and
Bottom row: Clarke MacArthur, Pavel Kubina, Chris Chelios and Ondrej Pavelec.
All of the Thrashers players were awesome, but we have to give special thanks to Pavel Kubina. He was kind enough to come over and talk to Mikayla and spent some time reminiscing about his run with Tampa Bay. He even remembered her from 2004, when she brought him a Care Bear and wished him good luck during the Stanley Cup playoffs.
