Monmouth University Basketball and Football

On Friday night we went to the season opener for the Monmouth University Men's basketball. It was a very exciting game. They won by one point in the last few seconds of the game. We had seats right next to where the players come out at the beginning of the game and half time and go back in at half time and the end of the game. Brandon and Wesley were able to get high fives from the players every time they came out or went back in.
On Saturday afternoon we went to the Monmouth University football game. It was the last game of the season. We hadn't been to a football game in a few years but wanted to check out the new stadium that they built just in time for this season to start. We only lasted until half time since it was freezing out and Monmouth was already winning by a lot at half time.

Ball Boy

Brandon's soccer coach texted me on Thursday night to see if Brandon wanted to be one of the ball boys the next morning at the boys high school soccer game. He wanted to and had so much fun doing it.

Franklin Institute

Brandon, Wesley, and I have been off of school the past few days because of teacher conventions. Stu took Thursday off too and was off on Friday for Veteran's Day. On Thursday we decided to go to the Franklin Institute. It was a last minute decision since our original plan was to go to New York. Brandon wound up having soccer practice at 5:00 since his game was rained out on Tuesday so we needed to find an activity that was shorter to do. Everyone wound up loving the Franklin Institute and can't wait to go back!

Halloween 2017

Brandon and Wesley both had a blast trick or treating this year. They got so much candy! Wesley was a Storm Trooper and Brandon was a panda. I was Sleepy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs with my co-workers. I couldn't go to Brandon and Wesley's parades but thanks to Stu and the grandparents who attended I was still able to get pictures from the parade. I also got some pictures from their class parties from the homeroom moms who attended the parties.

Halloween Party

Last night Stu and I went to a Halloween party at the Sorrentino's house. We went as players from the game show Double Dare which we both watched when we were younger. We won the prize for best couple's costume!

The party was a lot of fun. I loved seeing all of the costumes that people came up with.

Fright Fest

Yesterday we went to Great Adventure for Fright Fest. Brandon and Wesley went trick or treating to some of the characters, we went on a few rides, and went to two shows.
Brandon was chosen to be in the first show which was a magic show. He got to help with a lot of the tricks. He loved being in the show.
At the end of the second show, an animal show, Brandon and Wesley got to pet the lizard which was in the show.

Ocean High School Game

Brandon and some of the players from his soccer team went to watch the boys high school soccer team play in the Shore Conference Finals this past Thursday.
